Weldon is either capitalizing on the Downton Abbey craze or writing a new series for television on Edwardian England. It is written with some wit but is light and not memorable. A guilty pleasure!

Slow, slow, slow! Maybe shouldn't read it at bedtime.

Diverting until you get your next Downton Abbey fix. Nice descriptions of clothing & salient details that only a woman would notice, but too sentimental & not enough about the servants.

Delightful story illustrating the societal strata in late 1800's using two families, one from England, one from the U.S. If you like Downton Abbey you will enjoy this.

The first in a trilogy about an aristocratic family in Edwardian England - shades of Downton!
