Publisher's Summary

Around the corner from the elegant townhouses on Albion Place is Britannia Mews, a squalid neighborhood where servants and coachmen live. In 1875, it's no place for a young girl of fine breeding, but independent-minded Adelaide Culver is fascinated by what goes on there. Years later, Adelaide shocks her family when she falls in love with an impoverished artist and moves into the mews. But violence shatters Adelaide's dreams. In a dangerous new world, she must fend for herself-until she meets a charismatic stranger and her life takes a turn she never expected.   

A novel about social manners and mores reminiscent of Edith Wharton, this story of love, family, and the price one must pay for throwing off the shackles of convention is also a witty and incisive dissection of the “upstairs, downstairs” English class system of the last two centuries.

Wonderful Book! I want to listen to it again!

When I reluctantly reached the end, I just wanted to start all over! I haven’t been so immersed in a book or identified with a character as much as this for years!! Anna Parker-Naples is one of the two best audible narrators I have ever heard! I plan to search out everything she has narrated!

Great storyline

The mews are the narrow streets behind the huge manor houses . with there stables on ground floor and living quarters above . these were places for the hired help and the horses and carriages. this book I believe accurately tells of plausible lives lived in and amongst such places in the time told .
