Publisher's Summary

You can choose your friends, but you cannot choose your family...or can you?

Now 16, twins Lizzie and Maggie are educated young ladies who have not been called "the Mopsies" in years - except by their guardian, Lady Claire Trevelyan. With the happy prospect of choosing their own future, the girls can leave their dodgy past behind, and Lizzie can bury her deepest childhood memories where they can do no harm.

Upon her graduation from school, Lizzie is awarded an enormous honor, but can she pay the price? Is she ready to be separated from Maggie and become the woman she believes she was meant to be - or will old habits tempt her into defiance and plunge her into disaster?

On a dare Lizzie picks the wrong man's pocket and nearly loses her life. But these frightening events bear unexpected fruit: The dream Lizzie holds closest to her heart comes true in a most unexpected way. But this dream, too, comes with a price. Lizzie must decide whether her true family is the one she was born into or the one she chose that long-ago day when the Lady of Devices steamed into their lives.

    Story
    "Engaging and endearing."
    Where does A Lady of Resources rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This series is an incredibly well written set of books within the Steampunbk genre, and Adina expertly walks the line between a brilliant, steam-infused plot, full of action and invention, and brilliant, strong female characters that readers find themselves falling in love with.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Lady of Resources?

    This book takes an interesting turn, breaking from its focus on Claire, to centre the action around the now 16 year old Mopsie twins, who are dealing with the seeming disconnect between their emergence into polite society, and their past on the streets of london. The climactic ending is the most memorable scene of the book, and is in every sense, electrifying.


    Which character – as performed by Fiona Hardingham – was your favorite?

    This book really opens up Lizzy's world, especially her inner world, and the turmoil she faces as she tries to reconcile her past with what she wants for her future. Fiona as always, shines in performing all of the characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Very engaging. The plot moves very well and its easily a series you can get very carried away in.

    "Enjoy Them All, but This One... Weeks!"

    I've enjoyed all of these books. At times, one familiar with storytelling might be familiar with a method or turn, but this one, for certain -- at least after the teenage histrionics -- definitely had me in the edge of my seat!!!
