In the aftermath of The Great War, everything is changing. But not for Marian Fielding. Marians life is quiet and predictable in the solitude of the English countryside, where she plans to remain and care for her parents. But Marians world is turned upside down when she meets brash, confident Katherine Fuller. Katherine arrives at the Fieldings estate for the wedding of Marians sister and immediately shakes things up. Instead of keeping an eye on the ill-mannered American girl and keeping her out of trouble, Marian finds herself magnetically drawn to Katherines vivacious nature, and they are swept into a whirlwind romance that will change both of their lives. But will Katherines unconventional behavior ruin their chance at happiness? Can Marian leave her old life behind? Will two women from different worlds find a way to be together against all odds and expectations?...

I got very excited at a new 1920s f/f because honestly, what a fabulous period and how much potential. We definitely get a sense of the changing times, including the collapse of the landed aristocracy and the ravages of the War, but mostly it's a pretty inward-focused story concentrating on Lady Marian's slow journey of self discovery and then the growing sexual relationship. The two leads are passionate, flawed, and fit well together. I'd have liked more external plot / internal conflict myself ...more
