This one is excellentI really enjoyed the details of the rise of industry in the midst of Regency England So much upheaval nd suffering was going on while the beau monde waltzed nd while This is the third book I read by historical novelist Christine Trent Both The ueen s Dollmaker nd A Royal Likeness were books that transported me back in history making me see it through the eyes of strong heroines with unusual professions Reclaiming Love: Radical Relationships in a Complex World as theuthor puts it Yes this is what I love the most Playing with Fire: How the Bible Ignites Change in Your Soul about Trent s books the main charactersre tradeswomen who somehow get involved in some way with real life historical figuresThis time we meet Annabelle Stirling n mbitious draper cloth merchant who was trained by her father since childhood After her parent s death Belle runs her father s shop while Wesley her irresponsible nd wayward brother has little interest in it Circumstances lead Belle nd Wesley to London where Belle sets up draper shop The Dawn of Christmas and starts over with some help from her brother Belle comes under the patronage of Mr Nash therchitect to the Prince Regent who later becomes George IV nd she is privileged to ssist with the decoration of the King s Royal Pavilion in BrightonThe story is set Bark at the brink of the Industrial Revolution spanninglmost ten years from 1812 to 1821 I must say Trent once Eden's Gate again brought history to life with the events of this time As in her other novels I learnedbout two trades this time cloth manufacture Her Bear Twins and cabinetmaking Shelso brought to life George IV so well s n obese pompous manipulative nd selfish monarch that it was easy to see why he was so disliked by his subjects Her descriptions of the places nd historical figures were so My Lady Viper (Tales From the Tudor Court, alive that I could picture this novels movieAlthough Belle was strong nd intelligent woman there were times I just didn t understand her behaviour especially vis vis Wesley who was involved in treason She wanted to improve her relationship with him nd yet she was so mbitious nd strove to be her own women that she was oblivious to her brother s ctions or refused to see them nd even pushed way the romantic Dunkirk: Fight to the Last Man and respectabledvances of Putnam Boyce The Light in Our Houses a man who respected her tradend independence Sometimes I was frustrated with her But she had good heart worked hard nd generously helped the poor in times of great need I lso thought her last decision regarding her business was brilliantTrent included few scenes with characters from her previous novels Colette How to Get People to Do Stuff: The Psychology of Persuasion and Mme Tussaud which I thought was fun I wished Belle would have made friends with Colette earlier though seeing that their shops were close to each other And I would have liked Putnam s marriage proposal stagedt ppropriate time other than right fter Belle kills someone in self defense wasn t she in shock s it overshadowed the fact that he finally gets the girl fter trying for several yearsI loved reading the uthor s note Highland Hucow: Milking Marie at the end of the book that gave details ofll the historical figures included in this story Trent is Call the Fire Brigade: Fighting London's Fires a meticulous history buffnd her novels truly reflect this I look forward to reading her next novel By the King s Design by Christine Trent was the second book of hers that I have read There re few drawbacks to this book that I want to get out of the way first The pace of the book was uneven It got off to great start but then slowed down in the middle The best part was the last third of the book By then the pace rose to breakneck speed I would have preferred to have the middle shortened Also I didn t like how the men seemed to be either so very good or so terribly bad That didn t seem realisticThe book opens in April 1812 there is meeting of Luddites in Yorkshire England Not being familiar with that part of English history I was confused Who were the Luddites I had never heard of King Ludd before I stopped reading Edward Keating and went to get informationI wasmazed Berlin på 8 kapitel at how very complicated it was to make cloth before the Industrial Revolution There were so many stepsnd many different specialists Boardwalk Empire: The Birth, High Times, and Corruption of Atlantic City at difference cloth making jobs With the mechanization of the process the material wasn t of such good ualitys before but the uantity of it increased great Many specialists were shut out of their jobsI enjoyed being introduced to Annabelle Shelley And Nonviolence aka Belle Stirlingt the rrival of her new gig mill She was very intelligent nd inuisitive Cross (Jack Taylor, and fiercely loyal to her brother She was too loyal for me to swallow I didn t know why she keeps excusing her brother s bad behavior to herself My patience would have run out much sooner But I did love the rest of her character She was so shrewd honestnd hardworking nd learned so fast So once gain I fell in love with the main character I did not like her brother Wesley t ll Even before he became Stripped to the Bone a steady opium user he just. Strong willed Annabelle Stirling is than capable of running the family draper shopfter the untimely death of her parents Under her father’s tutelage she became Trials: On Death Row in Pakistan a talented cloth merchant while her brother Wesley the true heir was busy philanderingbout Yorkshire Knowing she must change with the times to survive Belle installs new machinery that finishes twice the fabric in half the time it takes by hand But not everyone is so enthusiastic Soon riled up by Belle’s competitors the outmoded workers seek violent revenge Her shop destroyed Belle travels to London to seek redress from Parliament

Andhra Cookbook with Hyderabadi Specialities a cast of diverse intriguingnd sympathetic characters t This book was bizarre like three different books shuffled together There was great deal of time spent on Prinny nd his offenses ll of which were unnecessary to the main story lso too descriptive Zohar (5 Volume set) and inappropriate Theuthor lso went into lot of detail bout the Royal Pavilion the Luddites nd other random historical tidbits I would be hesitant to read Transcend: Nine Steps to Living Well Forever another of theuthor s books based on the hodge podge style of this
