The story of Lola and her spunky attitude and antics continue during the Victorian times. In this instance, we are taken to France. She has brushes with historical figures such as George Sand, Alexandre Dumas, Franz Liszt and Frédéric Chopin. I find it a delight when little interactions and trivial details of such persons are described to enlighten us on their personality.

I was especially taken with one chapter which described a duel. The art of dueling, implications, and history were touched up
