Obvious....except for the terrible ending. After making us suffer through 4 books of agony apparently the love the Hollands sisters hold is fleeting and really not worth of the trouble they caused.

I went into this book expecting a sense of the real nineteenth century Manhattan, and was rather disappointed with the results. Certainly, there was an abundance of description regarding chairs, mirrors, rooms, and dresses, dresses, dresses. But the characters were for the most part sad mock-up of young girls; they all seemed either stereotypes of society or deliberately scandalous. The actions and dialogue of many seemed ill-suited to the time or the story. The central cast, including five Victorian teens: Elizabeth, Henry, Penelope, Carolina, and Diana, was a perfect example of this. Henry Schoonmaker – New York's most sought after bachelor-never showed an ounce of appeal. Elizabeth Holland -perfect daughter- was dull. Her sister Diana was incredibly ill-bred for some one of her class and Penelope-her friend/enemy- was shallow. Carolina seemed to have been placed to add conflict to the plot, and her actions jarred with her station. At times I wondered why am I reading this? until I hit the middle of the story and the plot locked into place and carried me to the end. It wasn’t spectacular, but it was solid- if unbelievable. I confess what snared me in the end was how the author managed to make each character view the others from a new point of view, which is rare and oddly refreshing.

Final Word: I finished with mixed feelings. It not a good historical fiction and only a middling book- yet I may end up picking up the others for the sake of its unusual construction and perspective.

I waited to do a review till the end of the series. This series was an easy one to get into. I enjoyed the characters and the dive into the "rich" world of that time era. The story lines and the way the intertwined were interesting. Some points I felt I had figured out and then was surprised.

I felt as though the last book was rushed and she could have and maybe should have added another book to this. The ending of this story was disappointing.

Boo! Competently written, but I guessed the ending by page six. (That I was compelled to actually finished the book is the only true compliment I can pay it.)
