My Last Duchess

review My Last Duchess 107 The turn of the twentieth century to seek a titled husband beautiful vivacious Cora Cash whose family mansion in Newport dwarfs the Vanderbilts' suddenly finds herself Duchess of Wareham married to Ivo the most eligible bachelor in England Not. I just loved this book It was so up my alley Two of my favorite books are Gone With the Wind and Forever Amber and this was sort of a mash up of those Okay this was not as a sweeping saga as those two books but it borrowed elements from them There may have been nothing really new offered here but I don t care It was the exact kind of story that keeps me turning the pages and removes me from the drudgery of houseworkThe story centers around Cora Cash love the name who is rich beyond belief as we are reminded every other page Her mother lacks only one thing that money can t buy a royal title so she dispatches Cora off across the pond to land a duke Cora is rich and pretty Duke is handsome and poor bingo The Duke and Cora come to the marriage with their baggage from the past in the form of Charlotte and Teddy respectively Of course the path to happily ever after cannot be smooth or there wouldn t be a story Cue the misunderstandings and lost opportunities and you have the bulk of this book with a dollop of happy ending like a cherry on top The supporting members of the cast such as Cora s maid and mother and the Duke s best friend round out the story I thoroughly enjoyed this book like a hunk Godiva chocolate

There are 3 things that happened in this book that made it an impossibility to take it remotely seriously even if the rest of the book had been the pinnacle of sophisticated literature it wasn t Yes within 15 pages we have girls kissing less than halfway through the book an artist references what will become known in the 21st century as the progenitor of all uncomfortable anime based bestiality fantasies God the things I learned as an art history minor andok well Constable Odo from Deep Space 9 isn t actually in this book but there IS a character named Odo and this was all I could imagineBeyond all that this book just wasn t what it was supposed to be I got the sense that it was trying to be some sort of mix of Dangerous Liaisons and Upstairs Downstairs but it got caught in this middle ground between romance and historical fiction which makes it not romancy enough enough for the romancers and waaaaaaaaaay too fluffy and shallow for anyone interested in actual historical fiction And never mind the fact that nothing not one single thing happens during the course of this entire book NOTHINGOh and I know this is snobby of me to say but nothing makes me annoyed than when I read little pieces of meaningless fluff like this and then there s discussion uestions in the back of the book like it s freaking Kurt Vonnegut s Slaughterhouse Five or something There is nothing in this book that reuires thought or interpretation Stop pretending like there is ARRGH
