I picked up this book several times and did not get further than the first three pages for months. I finally did get into the book, but it was a struggle. There were interesting elements of the story, but there was not enough of a payoff at the end to merit trudging through all of the details Cornish stuffed into the pages. The book would have benefited from some editing. Cornish spent years creating Rossamund's world, and you can tell. Foundling sometimes reads like a textbook to Cornish's imagination--a wondrous place, no doubt, but a textbook nonetheless.
