If you are familiar with the previous series, I am sure you fell in love with the huge family like I did.
She is a go to author for me when I need a fix of historical romance.
Tracy Cooper-Posey takes us into the staid yet surprisingly bawdy Victorian Era where appearance is everything and secrets are held inside the family.

All Emma wants is to belong…
Emma, the youngest daughter of the great family, cannot find acceptance among the peers of society despite four Seasons of pleasing everyone. She is banished to Inverness to avoid any scandal her anger might cause. Even in Inverness, she is an outsider, for her cousins, including staid and boring Morgan Davies, spend all their days working and thinking, for heaven’s sake!
Having survived years of the family’s disasters, Morgan likes his quiet life and routine. Emma’s excesses and plain speaking disrupt his days. When Emma discovers politics and adopts as her cause women’s suffrage, the most outrageous scandal the family has yet to produce threatens to turn Morgan’s world inside out…
This book is the twelfth in the Scandalous Scions series, bringing together the members of three great families, to love and play under the gaze of the Victorian era’s moralistic, straight-laced society.

I just love that this is a marvelous and true-to-life story. By that I mean that Emma’s story is down-to-earth and believable. She is not a super-suffragette who can leap tall buildings in a single bound but a real person with whom I can relate.
Her interactions with Morgan remind me of myself at that age. A bit awkward, a bit shy.
Year of Folly is the 12th and second last book in the Scandalous Scions series. I have to say it's being a nice wrap up to the series so far. I've been very pleased with the coming back to the story of Lilly through Emma and the satisfying ending. It seems Emma took very good advantage of the year she spends in the Highlands to grow quite a lot as a person. And the way Morgan lets her do it in her own pace before sweeping her off her feet is very sensible. I also liked very much the topic of the women's franchise. I totally agree with the idea that significant changes are veeery slow to take place and sometimes they even provoke a violent response. Bear in mind some countries in Europe didn't pass the law necessary for women to vote until well past mid twentieth century. A little outrageous from nowadays point of view, right?
These could seem a tad frivolous series like many others but throughout the books the author has been navigating us along the mayor mid to end of the nineteenth century issues, besides emotional development, for which I'm very thankful to the author.
Don't miss the series, now you can binge read them!
