One of the best Edwardian period romances I have read. This is such an under-developed time frame. I adored the way Cornick brought out the modernity of the era, but also the old fashioned values in a time when women still did not vote. Beautifully developed characters added to the charm of the book. I liked Jack and Sally, they were real people within the pages of the book and Connie, Sally's sister is a thoroughly marvellous bitch. Re-read - 05/10/2015 - This was a delightful re-read. I enjoyed seeing the glittering sophistication of Edwardian era and Dirty Bertie [or King Edward's character] so well represented in the story. Sally and Jack are both hurt by love, love that they were betrayed and let down by. The way in which Jack and Sally negotiate the trouble caused by Bertie and Connie and their lies and machinations are so interesting. I loved Sally's independence, and her great ability to trust and take a chance in seeing the good in people.
