Last year I read Owen Wister's The Virginian and just loved it. Surprisingly loved it since I am NOT by any stretch of the imagination a fan of westerns. I knew I wanted to read a second book by Owen Wister this year, and I chose Lady Baltimore. Trying to compare Lady Baltimore and The Virginian would be a mistake because they are two entirely different books. Different styles, different genres.

Lady Baltimore is one part social commentary, one part romance, one part comedy. Set in South Carolin

It was hard to get past the blatant racism in this novel. The constant deploring of how bad the new society is was a bit much after a while too. But the story itself, the love story (or rather the attempts to prevent a bad love story turning into a marriage) was very interesting.

Set in Charleston (called Kings Port in the novel), SC, in the early 1900s, this is a long and tedious tale of the Southern mores of the time. Supposedly, the Lady Baltimore cake was inspired by this book.
If you've read The Virginian and were looking for more of the same, look elsewhere. I could've saved myself a lot of time by just skipping to the end to see if John marries Hortense or not.
