This book was a spectacular romp into a former time. The plot follows a young son of an earl who is on his grand tour of Europe with his friend, told in excellent voice. The young man struggles with family and friendship and confusing identity while on the quest to find the key to health for his friend.
If I said anything more, I would ruin it, but it is one of my 5 star books of the year, one not to be missed if you enjoy some romance and adventure in an alternative time.
Recommended for young adults.
