To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
As lots of the reviews have indicated, this is one half of a pair of books, with much repetition between the two. I have to say I feel this is the more believable and touching story compared to the one about Jack and Grace. Thomas' journey is not just about Amelia, it's also about identity and who he really is, underneath it all a decent chap who will do the right thing. Amelia accepts reality but wishes Thomas would see the real her. I wish they could have had some decent time together before the bombshell of Jack's identity drops on them. My favourite scene is that with the maps- overall one of the best falling in love scenes in Julia Quinn.
If you read one of the Wyndham books- read this one, it's much more satisfying than the Lost Duke
The action of this book runs almost exactly in parallel with "The Lost Duke of Wyndham", a conceit that doesn't actually make it as easy to write as you might imagine. Having followed the lost duke and his love we now see how the events affect the man who thought for years that he was the duke.
