it was amazing

Delightfully charming and a glimpse into a world traversed by so few in the writing world. I found it quite enjoyable in so many ways. The plot was intriguing and mysterious, the characters uniquely fun, and the main character Charlotte a bundle of laughs as she tries to learn about proper ettiquiette and how to be a lady in society. I love Charlotte's tomboy-introvert charms and say-it-as-it-truly-is personality. The male main character was a fun twist of Darcy/Gilbert...fun and inferiatingly male.

I found myself, quite unbeknowingly, to learn a lot about botany and nature and caring for plants and the study of plant life through this character. Siri Mitchell did accomplish her goal of making a reader who is totally uninterested in learning the details of plant-life and making me VERY interested! :) And of touching on subjects historically going on in this century such at the beginnings of women's rights while making it feel fresh and new and personal to her characters. It was a marvelous story, wonderfully written, and one I shall have to add to my personal collection! :D
