Run Time: 5 hrs and 11 mins


Mary, Clara, Ethan, and the crew are back. Following the events of the first book pretty tightly, Mary’s mourning her father’s loss. Cecelia is still scheming. Even Nellie’s back, sort of.

Additional Comments:

  • The main characters are interesting. It’s kind of amazing how much drama the “does he love me/does he not love me” thing can conjure.
  • More money. More problems. Though it’s probably more accurate to say the rich people still have problems, just different problems than normal folk.
  • I don’t listen to a lot of historical fiction, so this might be the first series I’m experiencing set in that era, at least that isn’t a Western or WWI story. Here the war’s a rumor of things happening elsewhere. (It’s 1915, so a few years before the US joined.)
  • Side characters are okay, but you don’t really know much about them. So, they remain in the stock category. I liked Fiona even though she just falls under the category of “competent, hard-working servant”
  • Warning: a few threads of story are wrapped up, but the book might as well end To Be Continued … so, if you want standalone, go elsewhere.


If you’re coming off the first book and intend to go right to whatever book 3 is, then you’ll be fine.
