What other readers are saying about this title:
Part One of Weldon’s trilogy introduces us to the a somewhat clichéd upper class British family—both upstairs and down—at the turn of the 20th century, short on cash, feeling change in the air, restless in many ways. Enter Minnie O’Brien, wealthy heiress from Chicago with ideas of her own, and the story gets more interesting. Weldon introduces a lot of characters and gives plenty of historical contexts, all written in an easy, breezy way that made this fun reading. I’m sure I’ll have all the downstairs staff figured out by the time I’ve finished the next installment!
