Women Writers Reading Challenge #37: The Ashford Affair by Lauren Willig

IMG_2872

In the past I’ve really enjoyed Lauren Willig’s Pink Carnation series, which is about English spies during the French Revolution. She is really skilled at intermixing different time periods and showing how our history influences our present. This book is no different.

This stand-alone novel gives insight into the dying world of balls and debutantes in the 1920s. It’s a story about love and its obstacles and how family can build us up or tear at our hearts. It’s a very good historical romance, and I highly recommend it if you’re interested in the genre.
