You are, as ever, amazing at weaving together historical details and characters that are just beautiful. This was wonderful, thank you. Although brief and secondary I thought that you captured Alice and Jasper quite well. I don't know if you would ever do one of their stories but based on how you write them as secondary characters they would be fabulous. Thank you for another beautiful story.

What a treasure. I love the time period, the setting, the clothing, and the people with their social graces and expectations. It's all glorious and you brought it to life. Oh, and what I would give to know what the pastel posse loudly said about the little lady in red!
I think you perfectly captured the desire of Esme to surpass her peers through her children's marriages, coupled with her consideration of true love as an afterthought or unnecessary luxury. And Edward's character unfolded beautifully, with just enough subtle hints of ennui regarding the societal status quo. Who would have thought that Isabella would be the breath of fresh air he really needed out on that exquisite lawn (*jumping up and down* "I did! I did!")?
It was all just the finest of the fine, and I hope you win.

Esme was pretty snob here! ha! and Rose, well, Rosehas always been...
but Edward and Bella were súper romantic and hot for victorian era! at first he seemeed equally snobish, but then he faced Esme and started to show his true colors...
I wish I knew moré of their escapades!

I find it very romantic! I wish we could have seen a bit of their "bohemian" lifestyle too.

OH OH I have a new word to use
riveting ok well not really a new word but a new one for me to use in a review
I love the description of Bellas dress and very true europeans were seen as trashy unless they were royals Royalty can dress anyway they want
Pomade is gross
love the bit of history at the end
