    By page 25 I was groaning at the attempt to mimic Jane Austen I made a bet with myself that if the author got the wedding dress correct, I would forgive her and read on By page 50 I was cursing myself She provided a not impossible but quite implausible wedding dress so few writers get Regency wedding dresses right I might have forgiven her if she had provided a brief explanation as to why the bride had chosen what was not popular until some decades later However, by this stage I was quite engaged by the main protagonist, who was well drawn and interesting, and did finish the book The Waterloo scenes were actually very good.Three essentials for a really good historical novel are a period details of dress, furnishings, etc Especially when you date a book precisely, as this one was 1814 15 Even before the Internet age there were plenty of good resources for this b insight into social s the author did have this, but left some things barely touched upon that needed detail sense of place and time, which was quite well done in this book.Thank goodness she gave up historical fiction and went on to write Aga Sagas.
