Beyond the story, the book is an insightful glimpse into the mores and politics of the era. The reader can't help but be drawn into the schemes and conflicts of the colorful characters. There is a wicked twist at the end and the happy ending is teetering on the edge.
Above stairs and below, everyone in this stately home has a secret. A gently subversive story of identity and family, romance and deception in Edwardian England.
