Book Review: ‘The Benevolent Society Of Ill-Mannered Ladies: A Novel’ By Alison Goodman

Lady Augusta and her twin sister Julia are part of society, have money, and status, are 42 and both are single. The year is 1812. They have decided they’re going to help women of all ages out of difficult situations, even if it costs them their positions in society. They help their friend Caroline out of a blackmail situation, save your girls from a brothel, and save women in a madhouse. Furthermore, they have help from their butler, and a Lord, turned thief, who was convicted of murder 20 years ago, and for which Augusta thinks is innocent, and she tries to prove it. These women, and their helpers, are fearless, and get the job done. This book is GREAT! With well-written characters, a fun story, and supporting characters, it’s one of the best books of the summer. A perfect beach read. I can’t wait for the next novel in the series.

You can pick up The Benevolent Society Of Ill-Mannered Ladies in stores on Tuesday, May 30th from Berkley.
