    1. Not one of the better books by Jane Aiken Hodge, but I liked it enough to eventually read the follow up Caterina. My favorite is still Savannah Purchase.The writing seemed choppy.The book blurb sets the story up well enough so I won't recap. Lots of spying! Takes place in Oporto, Portugal around 1810.
