review 1: While I enjoyed the first book of the series, I liked this one even better. The way Sophia and her family adapt to life in London society after a minimalistic way of living on her tiny island was really interesting. I loved all the small details; the descriptions of dresses and gloves, the character of the maids, the small quirks of everyone around her. I also loved the ties Sophia still had to Montmaray. This story is told from a very unique perspective, so I enjoyed it a lot. I definitely suggest this book- even if the first one bored you a little, this one is sure to compensate.
review 2: I liked the first book in this trilogy, but I LOVED this one. I felt like all the characters were able to come into their own. Sophie was finally seeing how she fit into th
... moree family dynamic, Toby and Veronica and Simon all matured and Henry was my absolute favorite! Her girl guide troop made me howl with laughter, as did most of all her dialogue. I really enjoyed the descriptions of London and Milford, as well as the generous sprinkling of integrating real people into the plot. This book felt like an episode of the new "Upstairs Downstairs" or "Downton Abbey". I couldn't put this down. If I had discovered this trilogy as a 15 year old I would have been obsessed. Highly recommended! less
