Narrator makes nonsense of this already awful book
It will make me more wary in future
Pitkin pauses every few words, thereby removing all meaning from any prose.
I would like a refund but am having the utmost difficulty in getting this processed by you.

Romance in 1810 UK; A Story of Enduring Love
This is Book 2 in the Secrets in Silk series. The author does, however, give several mentions of what happened in the previous book. The 4-book series are romances of four sisters and their hope for love and good marriages.
This book is about Juliette, a woman who loves math and numbers, because they make sense and have order. She has a close friend whose constant company she kept while they lived in Scotland. It was a platonic relationship, albeit a close one. He, Paul Fraser, had gone off to Edinburgh to study and became a physician. Although we think highly of doctors here in the USA, they are not in the same class as royalty.
The evil Earl Strathland seeks further destruction and causes trouble for the crofters in the area.
The story has more action and devastation than in the first book. For that reason I liked it even more than it.
This is a fanciful romance set in 1810 England and Scotland. It's a quick, enjoyable read.The narration is excellent.
