You can choose your friends, but you cannot choose your family...or can you?
Now 16, twins Lizzie and Maggie are educated young ladies who have not been called "the Mopsies" in years - except by their guardian, Lady Claire Trevelyan. With the happy prospect of choosing their own future, the girls can leave their dodgy past behind, and Lizzie can bury her deepest childhood memories where they can do no harm.
Upon her graduation from school, Lizzie is awarded an enormous honor, but can she pay the price? Is she ready to be separated from Maggie and become the woman she believes she was meant to be - or will old habits tempt her into defiance and plunge her into disaster?
On a dare Lizzie picks the wrong man's pocket and nearly loses her life. But these frightening events bear unexpected fruit: The dream Lizzie holds closest to her heart comes true in a most unexpected way. But this dream, too, comes with a price. Lizzie must decide whether her true family is the one she was born into or the one she chose that long-ago day when the Lady of Devices steamed into their lives.

An awesome adventure, fabulously told

This latest instalment in the series is fabulously narrated, really bringing the tale of the Mopsies' discovery of their true history - and the ensuing chaos! - to life. A wonderful story full of romance, action, adventure, skullduggery, attempted regicide, steampunk elements, Victorian society, airships, munitions, what it means to be a family... and of course Devices!
I highly recommend this series for all lovers of adventure with a steampunk twist, whatever your age

Love this series

I missed Claire. This was my least fave of the first five but I still liked it. Would like to see these as a TV series or movie series!

Great 5th book!

Would you listen to A Lady of Resources again? Why?

This is simply a wonderful series; good natured, hopeful, and wonderful characters. The mopsie girls find out about their parents, to their ultimate disappointment, and learn what family really means.
