This short story follows the events of Lady Julia Grey's marriage to Nicholas Brisbane. This is the first Lady Julia story I have read and the first by Deanna Raybourn, but I plan on reading a lot more from both in the future.
I like that Julia's family is dysfunctional and quirky without going overboard. I like that Brisbane is non-titled middle class of Roma background. I like pretty much everything there was to read in this fast paced story. The pagan rituals of country folk surrounding Midsummer was icing on the cake. 4 stars.
