It is not that bad. Under ordinary circumstances he is more than happy to leave the decision-making to Frederica. Why it did or didn’t work for me: You are so paying for this, Charles.

The thing with her novels is that you know from the first pages who will end up together, but the joy is in the characters, especially the supporting characters, and the various hi Okay, how, HOW have I not read this until now?
I’m no expert on this period in English history, but there was such a preponderance of slang and colloquial phrases thrown about in the novel that no matter feorgette meticulously researched they were, it made me think how ridiculous it would be to read a book set in the 90’s and have the characters crying out, “sick! She is married to a georgeette, with adult children Gregory and??
