You can choose your friends, but you cannot choose your family...or can you?
Under normal circumstances, Maggie and Lizzie would be delighted to meet their long-lost relatives and be reunited with those who had believed them dead, but when are the Mopsies' circumstances ever to be considered normal? With her half brother, Claude Seacombe, Lizzie travels to Cornwall to meet her mother's parents. Maggie goes along, too, since she is part of the family...or so one might assume. But the more time she spends in her grandparents' clifftop mansion, the more she realizes that something is not right, and the events surrounding her own mother's death are more mysterious - and dangerous - than anyone alive suspects. For an old nemesis is preying on the weak and proud, and no matter how well dressed or well educated a young lady might be, she cannot stand by and watch evil destroy a beloved cousin's future. Maggie must straighten her spine and plunge into danger for Lizzie's sake...and prove that no matter the name she bears, she is first and foremost what the Lady of Devices believes her to be: a lady of spirit.
I love the quirky characters throughout this whole series. Most especially, I enjoyed learning all about the Mopsies. It's a marvel how their stories blend so well. Each book I listen to has me dying to dive right into the next one. And the narrator is absolute perfection. Shelley Adina and Fiona Hardingham are an unbeatable combination.
What made the experience of listening to A Lady of Spirit the most enjoyable?
This is simply a wonderful series; good natured, hopeful, and wonderful characters. The mopsie girls find out about their parents, to their ultimate disappointment, and learn what family really means.
I cant wait til I get the next one. Love the characters! Keep up the great work!
loved it. strong and nurturing female characters mixed with adventure. British and other accents. what's not to love?
Once I started this series, I wanted to find out what happened to this delightful hodgepodge of quirky heroines and vilians. great steam - punk fiction with adventure, romance and a bit of engineering thrown in as "food for thought".
A mad dash of adventure through steampunk society with great characters, fabulous storylines, and... Some very lovely chickens! A great read that explores what family really means - your blood, or your flock. Highly recommended!
