A spine-tingling tale of steampunk and spies, intrigue and heart-racing romance!When Katharine Tulman's inheritance is called into question by the rumor that her eccentric uncle is squandering away the family fortune, she is sent to his estate to have him committed to an asylum. But instead of a lunatic, Katharine discovers a genius inventor with his own set of rules, who employs a village of nine hundred people rescued from the workhouses of London.
Katharine is now torn between protecting her own inheritance and preserving the peculiar community she grows to care for deeply. And her choices are made even more complicated by a handsome apprentice, a secretive student, and fears for her own sanity.
As the mysteries of the estate begin to unravel, it is clear that not only is her uncle's world at stake, but also the state of England as Katharine knows it. With twists and turns at every corner, this heart racing adventure will captivate readers with its intrigue, thrills, and romance.

EXCELLENT NARRATION on a precious story.

! story is wonderful, if at times predictable. The characters are well thought out. I love the Uncle. So often characters with mental illness or quirks are written as caricatures, but the Uncle is fascinating and treated with respect.

The narration though, is amazing! I will be hunting down every single book this woman has narrated. Her acting skill is phenomenal!

Best find of this year for me!

This was a crazy good story which I was lost in from the first minute it began. The narration performed by Fiona Hardingham is equally as best as Moira Quirk who narrates the Finishing School series and Katherine Kellgren who narrates Her Royal Spyness series! I absolutely fell in love with every single character (some having to work harder for my affection than others),and in the end I have to say this book has been one of my best finds yet.
