I do have one question, though. The cover of the book is beautiful but it caused me to pass this book over several times. I have a pet peeve for historical heroines wearing prom-type dresses. I have looked on several websites and cannot find a dress like this one. Low cut dresses were fashionable for evening but I can't find any that are strapless. The dress was worn first by the heroine's mother (1880ish by my estimation) and recreated for her in the early 1900s. Were there actually strapless dresses at this time? This inquiring mind wants to know.
Readers will not find any language or sexual situations to offend them.
I really like Ms. Rogers' writing and this work does not disappoint. In the face of challenges that would destroy most people, Jessamine keeps moving through twists and turns toward an unknown future with dignity, grace and spunk. Thankfully, she is not a whiner. As with most fiction, I had to suspend some sense of reality, but not too much.
This is a great read for a rainy day and is easy to finish in one day.
It's also nice to read a proofed and edited novel, professionally done. A+
My only confusion is, what is the time period? She talked about electric lights which would place it early to mid 1900's but it reads like a regency era novel. The references to electricity kept jerking me out of my era. Maybe I just didn't place the book in the right century. It's for certain the cover isn't regency era!
Sex: none, mild kissing
Objectionable content: discussion of prostitution.
The epilogue is priceless!!!! We should each be reminded that we should. "do unto others...". Loved this story!!!
