The flipping to and fro from past to present gave me motion sickness. Thank goodness she dated each chapter, it was the only way to make sense of the rolling back & forward. Enjoyed as light & charming fluff, The Rose of Sebastopol is certainly enjoyable enough though! Neatly written, very well researched, and highly atmospheric. But give me a biography on Florence Nightingale & the Crimean War over light & fluffy, I'd have to say! Mariella was too often as wishy-washy as her name. (But I'll have her sewing skills thank you!) And why did she enchant everyone so? Was it JUST her lovely petticoats and demure nature? Viva la Rosa.
