bookshelves: historical-fiction, gritty

This was a short, fun read, but in the end was a bit too short. Really, she could have beefed this up to 300 at least, without losing anything, and without just adding vacuous filler. I would have liked to see more of the relationships between Lady Beatrice and the other women (how did the friendships work, etc.). I am nonetheless impressed that Baker managed to write a few complex and varied characters, an interesting and vivid plot, as well as finding room to throw in humor and a fairly complete back story in a mere 122 pages. This is the first book I have read by her, and I am curious to see what else she has come up with.
