    This is the longest book I think I have ever read Good plot but mixed feelings 3.5 stars I have to start this off with a warning of sorts This is a massive book Easily 3 to 4 times the size of a normal fiction story.With that said, the author did an amazing job developing infinite and minute detail in every piece of the story In my opinion, this book is actually two books in one Let me explain.First of all, it would be helpful to read the first book in the This is the longest book I think I have ever read Good plot but mixed feelings 3.5 stars I have to start this off with a warning of sorts This is a massive book Easily 3 to 4 times the size of a normal fiction story.With that said, the author did an amazing job developing infinite and minute detail in every piece of the story In my opinion, this book is actually two books in one Let me explain.First of all, it would be helpful to read the first book in the series, The Gilded Hour, which I did not do There are multiple details the author assumes you know that are coming in from the other book.Secondly, the list of characters is quite large and it does take a bit to keep track of everyone Even the housekeepers and other attendants have ample say in this story.Now back to why this is two books in one On one hand you have the murder mystery and all of that which surrounds the detail.Then in the next chapter you re learning about the women and their medical stories and their daily work The murder mystery pieces ...

    If you have not read Donati before, at least read The Gilded Hour before you read this one, as this is a sequel In fact, you re better off reading Into the Wilderness and the rest of the earlier series, because even having done that, I kept getting family relationships muddled Donati has some family trees on her website, but the publisher really should have considered including one in this book so that I could remember who is related to whom and how This is a big,rich novel, and I took my tim If you have not read Donati before, at least read The Gilded Hour before you read this one, as this is a sequel In fact, you re better off reading Into the Wilderness and the rest of the earlier series, because even having done that, I kept getting family relationships muddled Donati has some family trees on her websi...
