I'm a huge fan of manners for the modern girl and this book was super entertaining! The protagonist, as a newborn, was left on the doorsteps of a prominent finishing school where she grew up. Nearly 30 years after that fateful day of being abandoned by her birth mother, she sets out to learn the identity of her mother while at the same time saving the finishing school that has gone out of fashion with modern times.
I also loved the wee tips that are peppered through the book on etiquette and life skills.
A great read, opens the heart, educates the mind and generates a great sense of inner fabulousness, enjoy, enjoy, xx
Betsy is a great character, and her uncertainty and hesitations with her family and professional life is easy to relate to. Once you immerse yourself into her world, her story is interesting and great.
Overall, if you like British chick lit, you'll probably enjoy this book.
