Mount of Hope: A Victorian Tale of Young Love - Jamie Michele

This book surprised me in a lot of different ways. I was expecting a traditional Victorian romance and a good story of period detail and dialog, but what I wasn't expecting was a lyrical style of writing and a storyline that was both engaging and funny.

This is the story of a love triangle between Alfred Dermont (spoiled only son and heir to a country seat), Julia Drummond (ward to the Dermont's and childhood friend/sister to Alfred), and Amelia Thorwold (beautiful lady of London's bon ton who catches Alfred's fancy). The story unfolds with a clever twist and all the characters are all very well portrayed.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading Georgette Heyer, Edith Wharton, Thomas Hardy, and the lyrical style of Jane Austen.
