Very slow start for me; I really struggled to get into this one. In the end I was glad I did. I adored the characters, and rather wish we got to spend a little more time with some of them. (Aunt Hester was a jewel. Loved her.)I'm always distracted by editing slips, and this (I have the Kindle version) has several. Enough to be noticeable as an issue, at any rate. However, the story was well worth overlooking the errors.
