Almost a month after finishing this novel I'm still thinking about it. The depiction of a group of late 18th Century aristocrats in England is incredibly well done. I loved the way that the unstable politics of the time wove their way through the story line and subtly commented on our own politics. This is only a four star book because it is incredibly long and starts out slow. It was almost halfway through the book before I felt the pace pick up. That said, I ultimately found the book to be worth the time and investment. There are very few books that I am still thinking about months after reading...
