A Brief History of Montmaray (The Montmaray Journals) - Michelle Cooper An excellent start. Very plausible and a well-integrated use of historical events. Only misstep was the gay subplot w/ Sophie's brother and cousin. The reactions all sounded very off for that time period. It would have been much more of an issue then.

That said, the book did not amaze me as it did so many of the people that recommended it. I liked the character interaction, the family dynamics, Sophie's voice as narrator and the setting. It has a lot going for it, but something is still missing.
