It's the nineteenth century. Mary was rescued from the gallows to become part of an all-female detective agency. If you let that sink in for a second, you'll realize that A Spy in the House is not realistic historical fiction - it's wishful thinking, it's social commentary, and no, it's not true to the time period.

Yet I really enjoyed the book. A Spy in the House is like James Bond in petticoats with a side serving of feminism.
