    PDF Kaaren Christopherson µ Decorum Epub ´ µ decorum mobile, Decorum EpubA thoroughly engaging Gilded Age story I found the characters to be flawed just enough to be authentic; with delightfully bad baddies and sometimes slap able goodies The plot complications kept me locked in and the sisterhood and insight of the final chapters were surprisingly moving Sort of an anti romance novelThe chapter headings all lessons from a 19th century book on Decorum were erudite and sometimes uite timely “Persons who enter society with the intention of producing an effect and of being distinguished however clever they may be are never agreeable They are always tiresome and often ridiculousThey thrust themselves into conversations indulge in continual anecdotes which are varied only by dull disuisitions and listen to others with impatience and heedlessness and are angry that they seem to be attending to themselves Such persons go through scenes of pleasure enjoying nothing They are eually disagreeable to themselves and others”IndeedDefi

    PDF Kaaren Christopherson µ Decorum Epub ´ µ decorum mobile, Decorum EpubA fantastically engaging book with everything you need for a really good read probably best summed up as the American Downton Abbey meets Jane Austen It starts a little slowly but when it gets going it really is difficult to put downThe plot and the various subplots are fascinating with so many twists and turns it never stops weaving a new thread You constantly feel that the story will be coming to an end but then there is and and The characters are well developed credible and though not always likeable possessing some magical uality that makes us feel like we know them so well The central character manages to make herself someone to admire and someone we almost want to dismiss at the same time whilst she metamorphoses throughout the novel constantly
