This is a classic Jane Austen book with all the aspects we know and love: dynamic characters, town gossip, talk of class, rank, and monetary affairs, and an emphasis on beauty, health, and perception. The ending was great, as was the gossip. The letters that revealed important information about the characters were great, as was the story itself. It is a true classic through and through.

Thank the gods I finished this perfectly dreadful novel. Drying paint has a higher entertainment value. I am tempted to award a 2nd star if for no other reason than the novel at least accurately portrays this period of history which is filled with the inane concerns of the British class and rank system, along with the bland lives that women were forced to endure.

I just love jane austen and her for this time witty writing style. Nothing like pride and prejudice but it was a really nice read. Probably one of the first second chance romance books ever. 
And captain westworth had something mr.-darcy-esque to him. His letter was just so damn sweet! ♥️
