Thanks to NetGalley and publisher for this readThis was really a tedious novel for me I d say I enjoyed about 16 of the book but kept going because at each point I was about to set it aside something would happen to spark my interest Then just as uickly that spark was extinguished by a pail of disappointment I enjoy the setting of this novel very much and even liked the characters well enough I found the plot to be so lacking though and the language so inconsistent that it felt like a chore to finish this one There were so many opportunities for greatness and each one was passed over Instead the novel dragged on and on in a predictable and unexciting journey to nowhere special

Any one even at his own reuest to another unless you are uite well assured that the acuaintance will be agreeable to the latter If you wish to avoid the company of any one that has been properly introduced satisfy your own mind that your reasons are correct; and then let no inducement cause you to shrink from treating him with respect at the same time shunning his company No gentleman will thus be able either to blame or mistake you The mode in which the avowal of love should be made must of course depend upon circumstances It would be impossible to indicate the style in which the matter should be told Let it however be taken as a rule that an interview is best; but let it be remembered that all rules have exceptions. I m biased I know and like the authorAs the coordinator for adult events at my library I had Kaaren pronounced KARN give an author talk and book signing plus lead a book discussion of her novel Kaaren is a native of my town and offered to do these events at her hometown library How could I refuse So I listened to her book and was uite glad it was as good as it isThis is in the vein of Edith Wharton and other novels of the Gilded Age of New York as the blurbs contendI found it fascinating to learn this story started with Connor O Casey and Francesca was originally not a POV character My mind was blown for I had assumed Francesca was the main character Silly meI had an extreme dislike of Blanche especially after her destructive tantrum in the hotel though I could completely empathize with that violent anger unfortunately My feelings towards her however changed by the end of the book What a feat of writing and characterization that wasI also had a bit of a change of heart about Maggie Jerome after the book discussion with Kaaren The paperback edition of the book which I now own and have personalized whee includes a set of discussion uestions at the back One was about the childless Maggie living and surviving in the whole of that time and how that influenced her actions and character I had not even put it together before I read that uestion that the Jeromes were childless and that s why they took over care of Francesca Sure I saw their loveless marriage and felt sympathy for Jerry having to deal with his harridan of a wife Maggie was However as an infertile woman myself I feel great empathy for her character now and I am determined not to turn out like she didAnyway I enjoyed this book and all the for the look behind the curtain so to speak that knowing Kaaren has provided I d especially like to learn of what happens to Blanche of all people
