Publisher's Summary

"My dear girl! I could never fall in love by letter. Though I have no doubt you are a notorious breaker of hearts, not to mention a princess in disguise, and if I were a few miles closer to Toot-above-the-Batch I would be in great danger. From the safe distance of another continent, I will admit to a modest desire to see how your pearl becomes you, even to know the color of your hair and eyes, but this is mere curiosity, I assure you."
-Your knight, Robert
Through their innocent correspondence, a lonely young wife grows to love an imaginary man thousands of miles away. But when he returns to England from India, her idea of reality is turned upside down. Drawn from a safe world of tea and parlor chat into madness and mystery, she cannot find her own cherished Robert in the frightening stranger who claims her love.
Laura Kinsale personally chose the exceptional talent of Nicholas Boulton to voice her favorite heroine, sweet, witty Folie with her ferret, Toot.

From the first amusingly clever correspondence, the meeting, then the mystery that developed from that moment on, I could not put it down!

I love each and every one of Nicholas Boulton's characters, the voices are superb and without exception are just perfect.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed quite a lot and yes, I choked up, too.

Any additional comments?

Laura Kinsale and Nicholas Boulton have no equal in this genre.

If only narration was enough

This dragged on and on and on . As usual the narrator was excellent but there is only so much you can do with mediocre material

The only interesting thing I found about this book was the prologue and the letters they exchanged... those were funny but after that, skipped huge chunks of this books just so I could get to the end.
