You feel like you know this 19th century vill This is an interesting book to review. While everyone chimes in, Hans as the worldly traveler brings the new liberal and romantic ideals to the group and often isglo with Mietter who represents a conservative, Catholic, and classical view. I skipped quite a lot to the sex scenes, some of which are good, some too flowery for my taste.
