“There was a time when a girl’s wedding day was the happiest day of her life.”

In Falside, girls are a rare commodity; protected, controlled, and tracked by the administration. They spend their days idly waiting to be married off to the highest bidder.

When the marriage announcements include Tale’s lover, Freda, the women will do anything to stop the match from happening.

In this, the second in The Paper Duchess series, Maeve is living her life free of her Uncle Lou, but is still hiding from the Administration and being selected for an arranged marriage.

I like all the characters and seeing how their relationships are affected by Freda's arranged marriage to wealthy Emory Hess. There is a lot of dialogue throughout the book

A brilliant sequel to 'The Bottle Stopper'. In this work, we find out more about those classed as the Resistance and what they are doing to undermine the Big Brother government, forced 'arranged' marriages where the women are brides to the highest bidder, and where Tale and Freda's beautiful, but illegal, love story may be broken in two.

It's a very clear, focused view of a future where nothing has changed, and everything has changed. You'll see what I mean when you read it. The twists and turns

I thought it was a great continuation of The Paper Duchess series that started in The Bottle Stopper, and I'm starting book 3 soon. (In between class and work and sleep....)
