I have read book two in this series and remembered Sarah as selfish, which she still is for most of the book. However, I feel as though I understand her better and can see why she did what she did. I did have a hard time understanding why the director would like her when he didn't seem to see her good qualities very much, but I guess love is blind. I kept wondering when she would get found out, so that lent some suspense to the story. The day-to-day glimpse of what life would have been like for a maid in this time period and also some of what was happening politically and financially during that time gave a sense of reality to the story. This series has a Downton Abbey feel to it, which I enjoyed. Check it out if you like historical fiction!
I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.
Available August 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
