    PDF early learning.co ´ Sedition MOBI ´ sedition epub, Sedition KindleThis is a wonderfully sly and mischievous book which takes the bare bones of a nineteenth century novel and gives them an audacious makeover A group of mercantile families in 1794 London are keen to marry off their five daughters and so decide to have them give a musical concert to put them on public display and catch husbands But with various plots afoot the plan goes outrageously wrongGrant writes wonderfully

    PDF early learning.co ´ Sedition MOBI ´ sedition epub, Sedition KindleCleverly written but darkish satire on English social manners in which a French music master is bribed into attempting to seduce five young pupils before the concert at which they are to be presented to their future husbands Wicked humor alternates with pathos and a gothic intensity of emotion Very hard to categorize but intriguing and original

    PDF early learning.co ´ Sedition MOBI ´ sedition epub, Sedition KindleDelightfully amoral a wicked tale of seduction that channels both Les Liaisons Dangereuses and The PianoSeveral 'new money' families decide to showcase their daughters in the marriage market by purchasing a top notch pianoforte and training up their girls to perform for nobility Instrument maker Cantabile is affronted by the idea of untrained and clumsy girls touching his handmade piece of art He sends Monsiuer Belladroit to the families ostensibly as their instructor But really to seduce them all and foil the marriage schemesUnexpected turns come from his own daughter talented musician Annie born with a disfiguring hare lip and one of the girls Alathea cunning and scheming plans of her own Like Dangerous Liasions the period and theme of seduction fill the story It's light in places dark in others The girls are well enough differentiated to be identifiable Alathea is admirable and yet pitiable at times as is Annie who I wanted to see of Alathea drives the plot and ta

    PDF early learning.co ´ Sedition MOBI ´ sedition epub, Sedition KindleA rather silly but enjoyable enough bit of historic erotica here this book is trying to channel all the bawdy goodness of great classics like Fanny Hill Dangerous Liasions and Vanity Fair with a dash of The Crimson Petal thrown in for good measure I don't think it manages the brilliance of any of these works but it does create a story that is worth a few hours reading The story follows a group of girls out to catch themselves titled husbands; money is not an issue but breeding will be so a pl

    PDF early learning.co ´ Sedition MOBI ´ sedition epub, Sedition KindleI would never have read Sedition if it weren't on the Desmond Elliott longlist it just didn't sound my kind of thing And now I've read it I'm not sure what sort of a thing it is It's not a satire or a farce as it's just not funny and it's definitely not sexy I'm the last person who would say that a novel should be instantly classifiable and I usually enjoy something a bit different but this is just decidedly odd There are too many similar characters with five sets of businessmen wives and daughters the main characters aside I found it impossible to keep track of who was who Then there is the plot which is nothing s

    PDF early learning.co ´ Sedition MOBI ´ sedition epub, Sedition KindleThis has got to be one of the strangest and most unsettling books I've ever read In the edgy offbeat historical fiction genre that I so love I would compare it most to Fingersmith by Sarah Waters but this one is far disuieting and not near as satisfying This is hard to rate; I loved aspects of it and the writing is sharp and wonderful but at the same time it's left a bit of a bad taste in my mouth I think with a less jarring final section I would have really loved this
