By the King s Design by Christine Trent was the second book of hers that I have read There are a few drawbacks to this book that I want to get out of the way first The pace of the book was uneven It got off to a great start but then slowed down in the middle The best part was the last third of the book By then the pace rose to breakneck speed I would have preferred to have the middle shortened Also I didn t like how the men seemed to be either so very good or so terribly bad That didn t seem realisticThe book opens in April 1812 there is a meeting of Luddites in Yorkshire England Not being familiar with that part of English history I was confused Who were the Luddites I had never heard of King Ludd before I stopped reading and went to get informationI was amazed at how very complicated it was to make cloth before the Industrial Revolution There were so many steps and many different specialists at difference cloth making jobs With the mechanization of the process the material wasn t of such good uality as before but the uantity of it increased great Many specialists were shut out of their jobsI enjoyed being introduced to Annabelle aka Belle Stirling at the arrival of her new gig mill She was very intelligent and inuisitive and fiercely loyal to her brother She was too loyal for me to swallow I didn t know why she keeps excusing her brother s bad behavior to herself My patience would have run out much sooner But I did love the rest of her character She was so shrewd honest and hardworking and learned so fast So once again I fell in love with the main character I did not like her brother Wesley at all Even before he became a steady opium user he just thought of himself and what he could get anyone for himself The other male Put he was called seemed just a little too forgiving and perfectJane Austin paid a surprise visit in this book and now I understand what her purpose was in writing her books I really like her as a person I would have liked information about Beau Brummel to appear in this book as he was such a big influence on dressI recommend this historical fiction book to all those interested in the beginning of the Industrial Revolution the reign of the Regent King George and the importance of style to the well off and the royalty to this time periodI received this book from the Member Giveaway of The Library Thing and that in no way influenced my review

This book holds a special place in my heart as my first giveaway win ProsBy the King s Design is very well detailed and researched It establishes a real sense of the time period and richly portrays the story against a backdrop of historical facts The beginning is excellent It grabs your attention immediately and draws you into the world from the very start Christine Trent has done a really great job with creating a cast of diverse intriguing and sympathetic characters to mingle with the big players of the past The end is once again uite interesting to read It s even better and exciting than the beginning But is it worth wading through the filler I m not so sureThe last name Boyce is a variant of my own last name Boyse and as my father s family is from Britain I found it entertaining to imagine the characters as distant relatives of a sort Wesley s plot and arc are uniue and interesting view spoilerI ll admit that I did shed a few tears at Wesley s death scene hide spoiler
