To quickly assess the difficulty of the text, read a short excerpt:
At this remark my guileless husband stared & blinked & plucked nervously at his mustache; then leaned forward as if fearing I might by some convulsive means fall from the divan & injure myself. At this, I may have struck out blindly with my fists & elbows & cried—“You are trying to poison me! You & she! Do you think that I don’t know about this she—for I can smell the civet-cat odor on all your clothing . . .” Horace protested, he had no idea what I was talking about; & staggered to his feet, &... backed away from me, & what happened next, I do not know—for it seems, I must have fainted; & there was Horace passing my vial of smelling salts beneath my nose, to revive me. “Dearest Puss!

Guest 5 years agoI loved this book! The plot, involving real historical figures, was inventive and paced well.

Also, very little cursing and no gore or gratuitous violence to speak of. Some adult situations.
