I'm usually not interested in historical fiction. But this was an amusing and engaging read. When a young woman demands the attention of an aspiring barrister, she presents a dilemma he cannot ignore. Will he pursue her claims to inheritance? Will he be a fine gentleman to someone in need?
Mariposa has an agenda. Her bravery elsewhere is matched by her creativity in solving her problems. Jason has enough to do - but finds himself sucked into her life despite his best intentions. I recommend this when you take a trip and want to be transported into historical Europe by a complicated and fun tale.
