Can Lord Derby, the inventor of the horse race that bears his name, endure public mockery of his long, unconsummated courtship of the actress? Will Anne Damer, a sculptor and rumored Sapphist, be the cause of Eliza's fall from grace?

Characters are well developed and historically very interesting. I love the intertwined fiction and reality. Not an action packed story and a bit slow at times but a happy ending
