Beautifully written, poignant, and truly romantic. A Gentleman Undone will stay with me for a long time I know--the tragic pasts of both Will and Lydia fit together to make them perfect for each other. All their broken edges make a whole.I'd never read Cecilia Grant's work before, but if this is any indication, I will quickly be snatching up her first book. She writes with such emotion and finesse that I found myself putting aside everything else I had to do to focus completely on the story of her two lovers defying convention. This, I believe, is what romance really is, a bond between two individuals that goes against all odds. Their happily ever after doesn't come easily, but it is all the more satisfying for it.
