I heartily recommend this book. It's excellent.
I'm keeping fingers crossed that there is a follow up book. The way the story ended, it seemed to me that it'd be pretty easy to start where this one ended. It leaves you wondering what happened to some of the characters so I'm hoping we will get to find out in the next book.
For those who are like me and don't like romance but did like Downton, you may want to give this a shot.
*** I listened to the audio version of this , which was outstanding. It was multi-voiced and everyone did a wonderful job.
