Summary

Born on the night of a bad-luck comet, Ursula Flight has a difficult destiny written in the stars. Growing up with her family in the country, she is educated by a forward-thinking father who enables her to discover a love of reading, writing and astrology. Ursula dreams of becoming a famous playwright but is devastated to learn she must instead fulfil her family's expectations and marry. 

Trapped and lost, Ursula plots her escape - but her freedom will come at a price. As Ursula's dangerous desires play out both on and off the stage, she's flung into a giddy world of actors, aristocrats and artistic endeavours which will change her life irrevocably.

Read very very badly

I managed four chapters and may buy the book but the narrator was so monotonous and irritating I had to send it back.
