Not my favorite book by far but it a good historical novel depicting so well the evilness of the early English and life in a class based society.. makes me wonder what the British had that made them feel like they were above Everyone else in the world...

I felt that this story was a little disconnected. I liked that it was told from both Cecily's and Gwen's voices (and the author did a great job of making each voice unique). But I felt confused throughout a lot of the story. The ending definitely made up for things, and that's where all the action is. Though I felt that everything was left unfinished and that there is more to the story.

Well. This one's lovely for its historical significance and accuracy, but wow. Cecily is such a stuck-up beyotch, even though we knew she was going to be -- how could she be so cruel? *coddles Gruffydd* And then the novel's end (and by "the novel's end" I mean the last page) was oddly abrupt. It makes me wonder if the unfinishedness is on purpose or not.

A great historical novel about growing up in a class based society. Told from two points of view - the priviledged and the not so priviledged. Also shows the evilness of the British Empire at its worst. This book would make a modern girl really appreciate what she has in todays society - regardless of class.
