The narrator's English accent really helped the story come to life. I enjoyed getting a glimpse of what country life for the priviledged was like during this period of England's history.
Similar in some ways to Colleen Coble's Lonestar series where characters in those stories marry out of need, rather than love. Both author's do a good job of demonstrating the importance of friendship, respect, and commitment in a marriage, rather than depending solely on love.
The accent, most definitely!
