This is my favorite novel by Francis Hodgson Burnett. The Shuttle is sophisticated historical fiction about an American Vanderbilt-type heir married off to an English Lord. It appears to take place at the end of the Victorian era through the Edwardian era. There are so many layers to the novel-- everything from love, spite, jealousy, money, titles and two American heiresses! You will love to hate the shrewd Lord while falling in love with the Lady's American sister. The Shuttle is written with such imagination and complexity much like a shuttle weaving a complex pattern... I believe it has been the inspiration for many recent authors such as Daisy Goodwin as well as the hit drama Downton Abby.--Submitted by Kristina Williams.
