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.
