We wait a considerable long time to uncover the mysteries of Aunt Sophie's earrings, Cassandra's secret, and Gerald's animosity while being distracted by the romantic game played by Cassandra and Yates. And then all of a sudden, you've reached the end of the book and everything comes right out in the open, with new developments to boot. You don't get enough time to appreciate these developments, and are generally left unsatisfied as you close the book. There were a few juicy comments regarding 18th century society (men in particular) and how they've dictated what is right and wrong for a woman to do. But that little peek inside Yates parents' marriage was devastatingly short.

I do like that Cassandra was one of the few heroines who was successful in evading the marriage vows much longer than most. Usually the hero is often teased for getting tied down. In this case though, it's the heroine that almost got away.
