4 or 5 stars for the story, and how it pulled me in. 2 stars for the 'whore' content. I enjoy Mary Hooper's writing style.

Howvever, it was hard to tell that this was 1600 London versus 1800 London. Maybe there weren't many differences.

Content Advisory:
Little if no language. There is a lot of talk about affairs, mistresses and whore houses. This way of life is deemed acceptable to everyone in the story. The heroine, Eliza, does not want to become a mistresses (or whore); she wants to wait for her 'one and only', yet is not troubled that her dearest friend lives this kind of life and even rejoices when her friend is pregnant with the King's illegitimate son.
