Another interesting chapter in the Morland Dynasty. Enjoyed Venetia's struggle to become a doctor and the disruption to Morland Place. Already started the next book!

This is one of the most depressing books I have ever read. It was wrapped up at the ending with contrived happiness, but overall a cloud of doom.
Venetia Fleetwood would like to become a surgeon and she is going to get married to hazelmere.
On the eve of their wedding hazelmere realised that venetia was still going to try to be a surgeon when she was married. The wedding was called off. in later years venetia was shunned slightly because she was seeing someone without being chaperoned. George morland was married to Alfreda and she starts to change moorland place and they then run into debt. George does not listen when his accountant tells
The Morland Dynasty series reaches the High Victorian era of the 1870s in this book, which deals, among other things, with some of the first stirrings of women's rights in Britain.
