  • Amazing

    I cried. Embarrassingly. This is one of Courtney Milan's sadder books, but also one of her happiest (if you're wondering how that works, there's a spoilery passage towards the end of the book that explains it). The historical context, the relationships between characters, and the character development are all very, very well done. As per usual it is also a very smart book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Absolutely loved this book

    Courtney has done it again, she’s written a book that I adore — and now I want to start the Worth series all over again. Both Amelia and Grayson are engaging and complex characters, and I loved joining them for this story. I highly recommend reading it.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Courtney Milan’s books just keep getting better

    This book is the first one in a long time to make me cry. It is heartbreaking and hopeful and beautiful and funny. ..... Amelia is soon to be married off to a missionary – again! – when an entrepreneur arrives at her mother’s door. His aim? Build a telegraph network across China. His problem? No good way to encode the Chinese written characters. Amelia’s brother has sent Grayson to her, saying her intelligence is “criminally underutilized.” ..... Amelia and Grayson are both grieving the loss of family members. He: his brothers who were also partners, lost in the US Civil War. She: her birth mother, whom she hasn’t seen since an Englishwoman adopted her at age 6. ..... The refrain shown in the image “When the Devil comes courting, he offers you what you want,” is used with a deft hand, and to great effect. ..... There are complicated family relationships, problem solving with science, competence and talent unleased and given room to grow (I LOOOOOOVE when this happens), the uncovering of lies and betrayals, and in the end, a non-traditional HEA. ..... Courtney Milan’s books just keep getting better and better.

    Thanks for your feedback!
