If you could sum up The Countess Conspiracy in three words, what would they be?
Thoughtful, sweet, unique.
Any additional comments?
This one's for the girls. For every smart woman out there who has ever felt that her intellect somehow diminishes her lovability. For every woman who has struggled to conceive a child or maintain a relationship. This is a tremendous book. The romance is touching, the characters are well drawn, and the humor sparkles, but that's only part of the story here. The emotions are raw, and you'll feel every bit of what Violet is feeling. This is a book that's mostly about the triumph of the human spirit, and the ability of women to succeed even in a world that doesn't acknowledge their successes. I can't say too much more without giving away key plot elements, but this is a glorious tale.

This has been the only Courtney Milan book I haven't enjoyed. This isn't really a romance story, it's more historical fiction. It's the story of Violet and how she went through a journey of self acceptance, she fought for women's rights and equality and found love on the way. The romance is very mild and I got bored hearing about the inheritance of traits in plants. Not even the amazing narration saved this story for me. I do not recommend it. All the other books in The Brother Sinister series are excellent thought.

A very enjoyable romance, highlighting the plight of women struggling for acceptance in a man's world of Science. Thank goodness things have changed for the better in the modern world! Rosalyn Landor is outstanding as narrator and adds a whole new dimension to the reading experience. I will definitely be listening to more by this author and narrator.
