In this sequel to Debutantes, the women who made their entry to society together are now sheparding the next generation, although with the exception of May (born on the wrong side of the blanket and thus of low blood, which perhaps explains why she is the nicest character, the mothers are not sensible enough to behave with propriety and their English daughters are unkind to the American heiress making her debut.The characters did not have much personality but I couldn't help resenting that Sarah [...]

Charlotte Bingham is one of my favourite romance type author, but this book was a bit of a disappointment to me. I just seemed to drag on for too long, and I found it very hard to finish reading it. I only did so by forcing myself to sit down and read it for the day! Although this is the case, there were good things about the book. The storyline was interesting - based around once-upon a time mothers living vicariously through their children, and the character building within the story was also [...]
Wow. I found myself questioning my taste in books as this one dragggggged on and on and on. A group of older ladies living vicariously through the younger girls through the English Season. I can read the driest of dry stories, but this one left me bored.
If you love Jane Austen or Georgette Heyer you'll love this book! It took a look at the London Season from a variety of different viewpoints and I loved how many wonderful different romances there were!Ranked #8 in my top 10 romance list
Some interesting details of Edwardian life in London during debutante season. Otherwise, a swift, relatively painless, and completely undemanding read. Wonder why it hasn't been made into a movie yetrhaps because there's not much suspense. More soap opera-y.
This book was good. But not as heart wrenching as The Debutants.
I adored every single superbly written paragraph of this delightful story.
This was ok, bit old fashioned for me, but persevered and finished reading it :)
Did bot bother finishing. Great storyline but plot failed it
