Sweet story, set in the Regency period of Jane Austen's books but lacking her subtle wit. Still, I liked Frederica and how her worth was measured more by her sensibleness than her beauty. I would have liked to have seen both sides of the romance developing a bit more, and would have liked a little less wordiness and a few more surprises in the story. But overall I enjoyed it. If this were made into a costume drama, I'd surely watch and enjoy it!
