Sophie & Juliet
Georgian England: Lord Grayton, close friend to King
George III and Queen Charlotte, is master of the vast
Rosewood Park Estate, some distance from London.
A widower, Grayton falls in love with the
headmistress of an orphanage. He petitions the Kind
and Queen for permission to marry, but is forbidden
to take a wife so far beneath his station. Rumor has it
that the headmistress and her sister are the long-lost
twins of royal English blood who disappeared as
infants during the Seven Years’ War. The Queen
investigates, looking for some magic regarding
Grayton’s marital wishes. Word of the investigation
leaks out, resulting in palace intrigue, a ransom plot,
twists, turns, thievery, and death.
A broad spectrum of British life, from royalty to the
simplest villager, is brought to life in this delightful,
off-time witty novel. As insightful regarding class as
Mark Twain’s Prince and the Pauper.
