    Kindle A Memory of Violets ePUB È A MemoryPDF à beechesgardenservicescouk à memory epub, violets kindle, A Memory ebok, A Memory of Violets PDF2 12 starsI read to be transported to a different place and time This book was so riddled with implausible coincidences that I was never able to become immersed in the story I kept shaking my head thinking “Yeah right” After about the 8th “remarkable” coincidence it became ridiculous The author has an engaging writing style but she needs to pay attention to period details I found it very hard to believe in the Edwardian England as portrayed The characters did not speak nor act as I thought they should Here are just a couple of examples of things I uestioned • I guess there was very little class distinction in England at the time and almost everyone spoke and wrote the ueen’s English – even former Covent Garden flower girls?
