Fun story of the consequences of misspent youth and second chances. Overall entertaining the countryside and Bath setting is pleasant and doesn't have the same restrictions as the season which gives the characters leeway. The was one plot point where the heroine, Jilly, is frankly TSTL. Really? You're going to leave the house unescorted with a jackass who's already propositioned you improperly on numerous occasions for the benefit of an individual who made your present life the living it hell it is? No, when Jilly left the house with Lionel I nearly lost it. Nonetheless, I did enjoy the it and the ending atoned somewhat for the transgression.
