Cora Cash, possibly the wealthiest heiress in 1890s America, has been raised to believe that money will open every door to her. But when her mother whisks Cora to England to secure her an aristocratic match, Cora is dismayed by the welcome she at first receives. The great English houses in which she is entertained are frosty and forbidding, dogged by intrigue above stairs, and gossip below. And it is only when she loses her heart - to a man she barely knows - that Cora realises the game she is playing is one she does not full understand, and that her own future happiness could be the prize.

"Period Drama Escapism" -

A lovely book - I did not expect to enjoy this read quite as much as I did. If you enjoy watching period dramas then you will enjoy Daisy Goodwin's in-depth descriptions of the lavish dresses and surroundings of the characters in the book. Would definitely read another Daisy Goodwin book.

"Easy read" -

A very enjoyable book. I am a fan of period dramas and novels so the talk to lace, pearls and jewels was right up my street. I would suggest it as a holiday book as it a rather easy (but still pleasant) read. I do feel that the story was leading to an ending that I thought was going to be bigger than it was. But as I said, a nice holiday book and still a good read.
