Not bad, but not great, either. Pandora is a bit too naive for her own good, and the book is really predictable, but it's a mostly pleasant read. I say mostly pleasant, because Pandora's dialogue was AGONIZING to read, not in a George Lucas Phantom Menace way (stilted and awkward), but in a poorly edited way. Pandora's sentences are all broken up with M dashes!! I coildn't tell if that meant she stuttered or just paused for breathe incessantly (too tight corset, perhaps?). It was so annoying I a [...]
I think I actually remember specifics about this book and I remember that it seemed more, I don't know, romantic?
Typical Barbara Cartland, with overly drawn dramatic characters and ultra-tame romance. I loved reading these when I was 12 or 13. Many hours were spent pouring over my mom's copies, but I don't remember reading this one. Poor Pandora is a complete Mary Sue. A wide-eyed orphan with so much family loyalty it is pouring out her young, innocent ears. Enter the dashing bad-boy cousin, the Earl. He has a chip on his shoulder about his family inheritance as deep as the ocean. Poor little rich boy! Pan [...]

I used to read Barbara Cartland as a teen and loved them. It doesn't completely stand up over time. The heroine is a little too perfect, the damaged hero not as damaged as you would expect from a current romance and the dilemma a little too easily wrapped up. Still, it was a nice easy read and I enjoyed it.
Very sweet story. Who wouldn't love reading about true love conquering all, in the end. And the Saint reforms the Sinner. Very satisfying. We need something like this in a world that seems to have grown so dark and troubling. Though Barbara Cartland writes of a time long past and far away, she will lift the spirits of all who read her stories.
An enjoyable book! The book was easy to understand even though dated. Some words I had to look up which was fun to do! This book had a very engaging story and I was totally absorbed. I also liked learning about a new author and the influence she had in this genre of writing. This book was a good choice! I am glad to have read it!
For the time in which it was written it's a very endearing story. Set against a more substantial plot or passionate story it may not hold up as well but this was written during a time in which ladies were "retiring" and submissive and it was a very cute love story.
eager to read more
More of a 2.5. Honestly, I was really into it until the last couple chapters and it's meh of an ending.
