I´m almost done with the book, I have 70 pages left. And I´m afraid this isn´t going to be much of a plot-driven story. The focus of the story clearly lies on the family and the screwed up family dynamic.

I´m sorry that you don´t like it that much, BT :(. I´m okay with the story and I find this train-wreck of a family oddly fascinating. But Heyer better has to explain, why, all of a sudden, old Penhallow cranked his despicable behaviour up a notch. I really want to know that and I don´t buy the reason that he is old and sick.

You have 70 pages left to go and there is still no explanation? Is he dead, yet?

I've just met the two comic relief characters, Charmian and Aubrey. So, at least, there was a little change in the monotony of the story.

Yes, he is dead. And no, there isn´t an explanation for his behaviour just yet.

Now that the house is full, it shouldn´t be too long until you read about Penhallows demise.
