I admit it. I'm a typical chick. I love this book. I always will. But anyone who dismisses it (men...) ought to look at it from the viewpoint of its very interesting depiction of English society at the time, when marriage had less to do with love and more to do with economic concerns, for both men and women (some would say that has not changed so much even in modern times). The risks many of these characters take will have serious consequences that affect their status and reputations in society at large, and within those severe social strictures, this book becomes a fascinating study of a time in history when choosing to fall in love could seal your fate, and that of your family, for generations.

Florence (Lefty) MacIntosh I read this to many years ago, all I remember about it is how much I loved it. Planning on rereading it soon, thanks for the inspiration.
