Cinder and Sapphires by Leila Rasheed was a wonderful historical romance
that may be of interest to  'women fiction and /or  Chick lit.'  I found this a good read and was of " a fabulous account of the life of the rich and famous as well as what it was like to be part of the working class in a large estate such as Somerton."  We find from this read that the Averley family are coming back to Somerton...Lord Averley is wedding Fiona Templeton. His and her children will have to learn to get along alone. Rose has now been promoted to 'lady's maid.  Will she be able to 'handle the responsibilities that come with all of this?  Be ready for there to be much 'drama, love and scandal.'  There will be Ravi, a Indian, who is travelling to England to study at Oxford. There will be a romance between these two and since this is forbidden they secretly send letters to each other. If will not be long that Ada will have to decide what she want to do...or what is expected of her.  Now, this is the time that I say you must pick up "Cinder and Sapphires" to see how this author will work her magic in this relationship.  There will be many characters in the read and for the most part they well all well developed and colorful.  There will be some serious issues in this read bringing up "women's rights, homosexuality, social class, and Imperialism."

If you are looking for a good series with adventure and mystery then I would recommend  "Cinder and Sapphires to you as a good interesting read.  audience.
