    I found this a very sweet story. The Princess Ann (minor royalty

    I found this a very sweet story. The Princess Ann (minor royalty) sneaks out of her enormous house and a gentleman - luckily, a good one and even more luckily, the one she's supposed to be betrothed to - happens to see her stuck in a tree. So he takes her out driving and to see a balloon ascension and to wander around all over Regency London without telling her who he is. So it's a bit Roman Holiday. I really liked the way they got to know each other by having fun together (though I got a bit mad at him for not telling her who he was).

    Refreshing

    A freindship that develops with out the pretense of society and yet a mask is in place.
