    1 thought on “The Mirage”

    1. Not so interestingThe first few books were gripping but I found this one too far fetched and predictable. It is the first one I have not enjoyed.

    2. the continuing saga of the moorland family. Benedict dies in Egypt and George inherits moorland. he marries Alfreda Turlingham whose brother kit runs up a lot of debts. Venetia would like to become a doctor but is unable to find a place as she is a woman. Venetia gets a place at st agthas but she does not use her proper name. Henerietta George's sister marries a mr fortescue. Kit dies in terrible circumstances.

    3. After the Franco-Prussian War, one of the young Morland women resolves to become a doctor. Not an impossible task in Victorian England, but a difficult one. Meanwhile, other family members have their own troubles.

    4. If this had been the first book of the series I would have never read any more of them. The characters were not likeable and boring. One wonders who her role models are for so many unattractive, dysfunctional and insensitive human beings for her characters.

    5. At this point, things are getting very complicated in the Morland family line. I'm missing the order of the manor itself. The storyline in this episode seems very similar to one set earlier. The wife doesn't like the Morlands, has married for unaltruistic reasons, etc.

    6. This started off a bit slowly, but improved with Venetia's story. The last 100 or so pages was very dramatic!

    7. Found my new guilty read! Lovely combination of Maeve Binchy and Penny Vincenzi. Will endeavor to read all 22+ books following the Morland dynasty. I just gobble this stuff up :D
