review By the Kings Design

read Ï eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB È Christine Trent Christine Trent È 7 characters review By the Kings Design Hile there the Prince Regent future King George IV commissions her to provide fabrics for his Royal Pavilion As Belle’s renown spreads she meets handsome cabinetmaker Putnam Boyce but worries that marriage will mean sacrificing her now flourishing shop And after Wesley plots to kidnap the newly crowned King whose indiscretions are surfacing she finds herself entangled in a duplicitous world of shifting allegiances Painting a vivid portrait of life in the British Regency Christine Trent spins a harrowing tale of ambition vengeance love and complex loyalties against the dynamic backdrop of the ear. This is the third book I read by historical novelist Christine Trent Both The ueen s Dollmaker and A Royal Likeness were books that transported me back in history making me see it through the eyes of strong heroines with unusual professions as the author puts it Yes this is what I love the most about Trent s books the main characters are tradeswomen who somehow get involved in some way with real life historical figuresThis time we meet Annabelle Stirling an ambitious draper a cloth merchant who was trained by her father since childhood After her parent s death Belle runs her father s shop while Wesley her irresponsible and wayward brother has little interest in it Circumstances lead Belle and Wesley to London where Belle sets up a draper shop and starts over with some help from her brother Belle comes under the patronage of Mr Nash the architect to the Prince Regent who later becomes George IV and she is privileged to assist with the decoration of the King s Royal Pavilion in BrightonThe story is set at the brink of the Industrial Revolution spanning almost ten years from 1812 to 1821 I must say Trent once again brought history to life with the events of this time As in her other novels I learned about two trades this time cloth manufacture and cabinetmaking She also brought to life George IV so well as an obese pompous manipulative and selfish monarch that it was easy to see why he was so disliked by his subjects Her descriptions of the places and historical figures were so alive that I could picture this novel as a movieAlthough Belle was a strong and intelligent woman there were times I just didn t understand her behaviour especially vis a vis Wesley who was involved in treason She wanted to improve her relationship with him and yet she was so ambitious and strove to be her own women that she was oblivious to her brother s actions or refused to see them and even pushed away the romantic and respectable advances of Putnam Boyce a man who respected her trade and independence Sometimes I was frustrated with her But she had a good heart worked hard and generously helped the poor in times of great need I also thought her last decision regarding her business was brilliantTrent included a few scenes with characters from her previous novels Colette and Mme Tussaud which I thought was fun I wished Belle would have made friends with Colette earlier though seeing that their shops were close to each other And I would have liked Putnam s marriage proposal staged at a appropriate time other than right after Belle kills someone in self defense wasn t she in shock as it overshadowed the fact that he finally gets the girl after trying for several yearsI loved reading the author s note at the end of the book that gave details of all the historical figures included in this story Trent is a meticulous history buff and her novels truly reflect this I look forward to reading her next novel

    (By the Kings Design) PDF DOWNLOAD ä Christine Trent I appreciated how dense with historical information this is I didn't know how much I wanted to read about rampaging Luddites until now I just wish all the descriptive language and historical exposition was in service of a tight well constructed plot After a strong start the middle of this book drags so much I almost abandoned it It picks up again in the end but I wish the middle third wasn't so meandering
