After enjoying Gregory’s “The Constant Princess,” I decided to go back and read her works in chronological order. From the time she could sit alone on a horse, young Beatrice Lacey has grown to love and learned everything there is to know about the land of her father’s estate, Wideacre. To her young and naïve eyes, her father is grooming her to someday run the estate, and it is a shock when she realizes that she, just as all other ladies of Quality, must eventually marry and leave the estate. This is the story of the severe and unbelievable lengths Beatrice goes to in order to secure her place at Wideacre forever, only to tragically bring about its eventual ruin. By far the biggest flaw in this book is that most of the characters, the heroine(?) in particular, are extremely unlikable. I will continue the series.
