Loved Downton Abbey, but this is not only drivel, but poorly written drivel!
When I read a period piece, it is to immerse myself in that period of time so that I can learn something of its culture, way of thinking, morals, etc., This author superimposes our present culture on a different era, mistakenly believing that if she dresses the characters in the right clothing and puts them in the right scenery, they become historical. I can't tell you how many times I outright laughed at how ridiculous the characters were. I couldn't force myself to read any further than chapter 3.
