Sophie is a "bastard child".... this back in the 1800's is so not the socially acceptable background for a woman.
This read was a god read. The turmoil that Benedict and Sophie both feels for following their hearts or following what is expected and acceptable is well written within this book.
I do love how the author has made the women in her books all very witty, strong and independent. Oh and there were a few little "easter eggs" sprinkled throughout the book, paying homeage to one of my favourite authors - Miss Austen.
The rest of the book explores a romance perceived as impossible by the aristocracy, and the awful life of illegitimate children. It makes me incredibly glad society has moved past such cruel hypocritical values.
But as far as the romance goes, I'm not sure it is fully convincing. The relationship between the two leads never really comes to life. It seems to be all about their different status, not about who they are as people. Still it's a good read that I recommend.
I recommend it, but wouldn't really push it. It's a good book, and honestly a lot of my like for it comes from the relief of finally getting a good book out of this series.

Sophie Beckett is the illegitimate child of an Earl, who has never openly acknowledged her but allowed her to live in his house as his ward. He passes away, leaving her in the care of her stepmother and two stepsisters, who have no interest in housing her, but suffer her presence, as they get a good allowance to keep her in the house.
In a Cinderella-esque twist to the story, Sophie is given the opportunity to attend one of the Season events, at Bridgerton House, during a Masquerade ball, with the housekeeper and staff being her collective Fairy Godmothers.
There she meets Benedict Bridgerton, and their two hour evening leaves them wanting more, but unable to have it.
The second part of the story follows their journey to meet once more. Will Benedict realise she is the woman in the silver gown who stole his heart, two years ago?
It's Cinderella, of course, he will, but not before plenty of other twists present themselves in the tale.
An easy read, but definitely not my favourite of the Briderton books, so far.
The story is however much more interesting and is a good change from the previous two books, the take on Cinderella is fun but merely transposes the fairy tale to the Bridgerton series without adding or taking anything away from the original. Sophie is a nice change but despite all the differences between her and Kate and Daphne she somehow falls into the same thought patterns.
As always with this series, the writing is clunky, the vocabulary american and the dialogue dreadfull.
All in all it is very readable and once again I read this in a few hours, but maybe an hour after finishing it, I have allready forgotten everything about it.
