's review

it was ok

The irony of this novel is that while the "heroine" constantly condemns one of her siblings as pretentious, she herself comes across as a shallow, single-minded social climber in her own right. She also wanders around sixteenth century London (dangerous for any woman, let alone one this wealthy and privileged)in a manner that is, frankly, preposterous.Kate Emerson is a good writer, but the characters here did not move me: and the book hurtles to a rushed and unsatisfying conclusion in the last 30 pages.
