A delightful love story. The characters are appealing and the story pleasing. I do wish that Ms. Mathews would be a tad more careful about the period details. Off-the-rack clothing for children or adults, for example, was not available even in London in 1817. The concept of ready-to-wear clothing would not be introduced until the late 1840's - and even then only for the lower classes. With the exception of sailors, who could buy clothes ready to wear in dockside shops that catered for them, everyone wore homemade or custom-made clothes. Silliness like village shops that stock children's frocks appropriate for a gentleman's daughter are very off-putting.
