Inaccurate and Boring
An awful book! This book proclaims Michelangelo to be the painter of the Mona Lisa. I may not be an art history buff, but between common knowledge and the Da Vincci Code, the mistake is glaring. If you can ignore that repetitive falsehood, you remain uninterested in the content. But, do not be discouraged from all Enoch's books! Her novels on Samantha Jellicoe are hilarious and overall a better piece of writing.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Having enjoyed all of Ms. Enoch's previous books, I was eager to read this sequel to Sin and Sensibility for another look at the Griffin family. Unfortunately, this tale of the youngest Griffin brother, Lord Zachary, and his involvement with the Witfeld family of Wiltshire (consisting of seven unmarried sisters, their hen-witted mother and long suffering father - shades of Pride and Prejudice!) did not live up to my expectations. Jane Austen didn't bother to do a sequel to the Bennett family and I hope Ms Enoch will not reprise the Witfelds. The only thing worse than this story would be to pair up the elder brother, Sebastian, Duke of Melbourne, with Caroline's 17-year old sister Anne. His 6-year old daughter deserves an adult stepmother!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
