She displayed a decided lack of knowledge about baseball, country music, and plush toys, but she is proud to say that she aced all things British and literary, answered all of her history and geography questions correctly, and knew that there was a Da Vinci long before there was a code.

Apparently everyone read Whistledown. Finally, after spending years as a victim of pity and gossip, Sophia decides to move on with her life and sends Max a letter demanding an annulment. The Lady Whistledown novellas taking place all over the course of the same events works much better with the addition of a little mystery, a missing bracelet, to tie them all together. Anyway, Sophia and Max fell in love a lot of lust, but love too and got married really early, before they really knew each other very well, so when adversity struck this VERY VERY VERY stubborn couple a mere two months into their marriage, they ended up splitting.
I don’t often enjoy short stories. I think I started reading it two months ago. Was it the fortune hunter, the gambler, the servant, or the rogue?

Though the story starts off as something rather touching, it becomes infected with a jarringly modern sensibility and, since everything ceased to feel authentic, it was hard to suspend disbelief and be drawn into the story.
