Although I have absolutely no belief in astrology etc that didn t put me off reading this novel I liked the way Edward was portrayed as damaged and outwardly cold but really someone who was vulnerable and looking for real love However the actual plot about Edward needing a mistress when he went to stay at his mother s house didn t sound real to me and Eliza was all too uick to fall madly in lustI was also surprised that mistresses were not expected to be able to read or to have decent table manners Whores yes but surely mistresses were of better uality The real objection I had to the story was the ending view spoiler I found it utterly preposterous that someone who had been as badly abused as Edward emotionally as well as physically by his mother could forgive her It doesn t happen like that I wanted a realistic ending I wanted his mother to get her just desserts because dammit NO ONE would forgive what she did And considering that Edward s mother or less sold Eliza into sexual slavery I could not see Eliza willing to marry a man who condoned that behaviour Also Eliza is supposed to be from some famous family and yet her father was about to be thrown into debtors jail and was known as a penniless gambler It just didn t hang together in my mind hide spoiler Wild Man Creek rake insists that the beautiful astrologer whose predictions drove away his mistress take her place in his bed.

Although this book will not appear in print for another three months I had the fortune of reading it in manuscript form a couple years ago I m very glad to see it coming out although I m disappointed with the cover they saddled it with go to and see what I mean The following is an excerpt from my initial feedback to the authorTelling fortunes seems very much in keeping with what I imagine of the era in which this is set And the idea of accuracy in such things will surely provoke interest in many readers I think all well written fiction in which a character wields some such gift has an advantage Leif Enger s Peace Like a River comes to mind Eliza s inner doubts and striving to do well make it all the believable and make her easy to identify with especially when she begins uestioning whether she should have given weight to Uranus in her calculations You do show a lot of arcane knowledge of the subjectAs you no doubt know the writing is very good More importantly the story itself as it unfolds is captivating and just keeps building momentum as it goes along The inner complexity of the main characters too is wonderfully handled their stray thoughts and aborted impulses their ways of sorting out problems There s even strategically placed humorThe remaking of Eliza into a mistress of course echoes the Pygmalion story which you surely have in mind What I particularly like about this story however is its redemptive nature Fairly early on it becomes evident that Lord Hartwood is at least as much in need of rescue as is Eliza and that despite their expectations the two of them will be good for each other I read entirely too few stories that take such an upbeat direction
