Lydia paints, plays darts, fishes, and shoots a gun. A Renaissance woman for her time, she’s a good match for her ancient love. Lydia shows strength, courage, and embraces change. Vincent is brooding and set in his ways until Lydia breathes air back into his life. He’s committed to helping her and doesn’t know how he “lived” without her.
I liked the Sidwell sisters, Maria and Sally. Their relationship with Sir Thomas Lawrence is true. He was engaged to one, then when she got sick, he went after the other. Their mother was the famous actress, Sarah Siddons. In the book, they visit with her and warn her about Thomas’ designs on her niece. Their sewing is impeccable and fast. After women see Lydia’s fashions, they clamor for the sisters’ skills.
