THE NEW COUNTESS
Weldon knows her subject and era well, and this last book in her trilogy is perhaps the best. As the family prepares for a royal visit, readers are drawn into the detailed preparations — making for a brightly colored, fascinating backdrop. No less interesting are the characters who have become family to Weldon’s fans because of their flaws, foibles and realistic actions and emotions. The world is changing, and Weldon brings us along for the ride.
