Rutherford Park by Elizabeth Cooke

3 stars
R- 2
Copy received for review

So, this isn't a bad book.

The quotes on the jacket compare it to Downton Abbey, which I've been meaning to watch, but haven't yet.

The problem is, I couldn't bring myself to like any of the characters all that much.

Unless we're counting the setting/house/atmosphere as a character.  Because that was awesome.

But the characters just aren't, for the most part, very likable people.

I understand that they're trapped by the rigidness of society etc etc etc but still.

I don't like them.

Anyway, interesting book.  If you like Downton Abbey and the like I'd say it might be worth a try.
