The writing was fine, but this is by far the most disappointing character Hoyt has ever written about. Emeline is immediately described as a clever woman, however Hoyt fails to see that trait through for the rest of the novel. She is repeatedly humiliated by Sam, the Hero of this novel, in all of their verbal battles. It really doesn't make sense that Sam considers her a clever woman when he continuously lashes her in all their conversations. Emeline is always a step behind Sam and is seemingly fated to just follow his lead for every chapter of this novel. To be honest I couldn't get passed the halfway-point. Emeline was just not the strong character I was used to from Hoyt and I was terribly disappointed.

While I liked the fact that the story is built around the norms which one must follow if one is a aristrocrat, and the ridiculousness of it, it was droned on one too many times for me.

And while I realize that Emeline has a bit of a bite to her, she reminded me of those old female characters in HR who always nag, remark and judge people, but only younger. Miss Hoyt unfortunately was not able to showcase the dichotomy in Emeline's character where she is the perfect, dependable lady in public, but a young, heartbroken widow who dotes on her son excessively, in private
