One note for new readers: Concordia is a very well developed character, but the first two books introduce you to her more than this one. This book works as a stand-alone, but is better if you know Concordia's background and who the other continuing characters are and how they relate to her.
Another commenter mentioned her dislike for David Bradley, Concordia's beau. I, on the other hand, like him - he's intelligent and caring (not to mention handsome), but he is a product of his environment. If he wasn't shocked at her behavior, I would feel like he was just a modern guy dropped into a Victorian costume. I was just afraid *SPOILER ALERT* that Concordia would give in to propriety instead of him allowing her to be herself. I'm glad she didn't rush into anything, and glad they mended things by the last pages.
I loved the book, I recommend it, and I only wish I didn't have to wait for the next one. Which I fully intend to read.
