"Lyn Cote's craftsmanship shines in Bette. Her beautiful plotting includes textured settings that jet you around the world into the lives of characters so real we think we know them. Add a heroine we can all admire, and once again the ladies of Ivy Manor grab hold of your heart and hang on." (Lois Richer)
The storyline is good, the historical aspects well blended with the personal, romantic relationships. The first novel, "Chloe", was good also, and well-narrated. This one is done by a different narrator, and it suffers greatly for it. The fake male voices, and at times, the nearly shouting loudness of the her narration is annoying at best. I was hoping the next one would be with the original narrator,however, no such luck. Listen to a sample before buying, maybe she won't annoy you as much as she did me.

Excellent historical fiction. Good representation of the times. I loved the strength of this character. Can't wait for the next one.
