As a mum to 4 kids, I rarely get time to read, so audio is a life saver to me. The classics are my favorite, but I love finding new writers.

    Cora Cash, possibly the wealthiest heiress in 1890’s 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.

    Story

    I am not often very tolerant of romance novels, but this one intrigued me because of the latest excitement for all things Edwardian - although this is probably strictly more Victorian. I actually listened to the first 3 hours and then couldn't be bothered with the rest of it, until a few weeks later I thought I'd give it another try and then found I couldn't put it down. It follows Cora, a young, naive American heiress who accidentally meets and falls in love with a British aristocrat. She marries him for love, but can the same be said of him? With twists and turns and a good deal of intrigue, you can't help but become caught up in Cora's life and romance, and the lives of those around her, such as her maid, Bertha.
    I really enjoyed the historical facts that were woven through the story and you can see that the author has researched her subject and time period thoroughly.
