It is clear the Deanna Raybourn has written this short novella as a "remember me" story so that her many fans won't forget her Lady Julia series after a bit of a gap when she was writing a different style of books with the memorable "A Spear of Summer Grass" and the less memorable "City of Jasmine".
This novella is also a brief interlude about the early days of marriage between Julia and Brisbane which cleverly covers a "repositioning" story about their future life together, both personally and professionally. Of course there is a mystery to be solved and it is one that will affect their personal lives for a long time.
It was an easy reading but minor story about Julia and Brisbane that undoubtedly will whet their fans' appetite for more adventures.
