This was the other book I purchased for my train ride back to Boston, and, like the other one, I was convinced I'd read it before. Luckily for me, it became obvious shortly after I started the book that I had not (although it seems to be an understandable mistake), and I enjoyed it much more than my other train book.
Even though the plot was a little bit frustrating. Way more of the back-and-forth than I usually like, of the "I can't marry you! I want to marry you! I won't marry you! I will marry you! Now I will talk to you! Now I won't talk to you! Now I can't talk to you! Now I love you madly!" variety. I did like that the heroine was polyglot, and there was a fun sub-plot where she tried to teach a stableman's daughter to be a noblewoman (with results far better than any they'd dreamed of).
