The plot has plenty of surprises... The dialogue is crisp... and there are a number of wonderful set pieces. New York Times Book Review
“The plot has plenty of surprises…The dialogue is crisp…and there are a number of wonderful set pieces.” New York Times Book Review
“What a joy it is to hand the reins to the superb Juliet Stevenson and say, ‘Take my carriage to Belgravia in 1841’…The story is expertly narrated by Stevenson, who paces it expertly in her highly listenable voice. Her delicious characterizations include some aggrieved and unctuous younger sons, a breathtakingly crisp countess, a goodhearted hero, a spirited heroine, shiver-inducing cardsharps, and oh so many more. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Another juicy tale of the British classes…The story opens in 1815, as events at the Duchess of Richmond’s outsize ball change the fate of one family; most of the novel unfolds in the 1840s, when newly rich industrialists began mingling with the upper classes…The plot will have the feel of the TV series, a form Fellowes seems rather to have mastered.” Library Journal
