A great follow up to the Silver Coin! I loved it!

Now that Anastasia's beloved parents have died, she has come to live with Brenna...and Brenna's father, whose raging temper has locked his daughyter into a life of fear. What is more, Anastasia soon realizes that her uncle is involved in a sinister scheme that places both young women in deadly danger.

Did you ever get a book that you wanted and then held onto it without reading it because then it would be over too soon? I held onto this book until I found the second, The Silver Coin, in the set. And then I held onto them both a little longer. I love reading about England in the 1800s and about the strength of women in that time period and country despite what they had stacked against them. I am also an incurable romantic. When I finally read these two books, I was not disappointed. They were wonderful. If you want to become absorbed in the characters and lives of a novel, I strongly recommend both of these books for your reading pleasure.
This is the first book of Andrea Kane's that I have read. It moved along nicely to the end without a lot of angst and betrayal, but it had a mystery to unravel as well. Two cousins work to thwart the one's father in love and money. It left a bit of mystery unresolved to carry over into the Silver Coin.
Loved this story waiting for the next one.
