Library Journal
Amanda Blackwell, owner of the popular Miss Blackwell's Cycling School and guardian of her mentally disabled younger brother, is not about to let anyone interfere with her lifenot her wealthy uncle, who wants to send her brother to an asylum, nor the much-too-attractive architect Damian Newcastle, who plans to build a 20-story building next to her school. But Damian has an agenda of his ownwhich, among other things, includes Amanda. Some hilarious cycling scenes and a cast of often quirky secondary characters make an interesting contrast to a plot that features political scandal, murder, physical and mental disabilities, and court battles. Brownley (Ribbons in the Wind, Topaz, 1996) uses a casual writing style and has clearly done her historical homework on New York City in 1880. She lives in Simi Valley, Cal.
