From Upstairs to Downstairs by J.P. Bowie


When everything is taken from you, including the memory of who you are, what possible chance is there for happiness?

Edward Lazenby has it all—a rich grandfather, a beautiful home, days spent riding his favorite horse in Hyde Park. What he doesn’t have, and feels he never will, is handsome Thomas Marsden, a man who, at first, seems repulsed by Edward’s forwardness when they meet.

Dalliances with members of the same sex in Victorian England can lead to scandal or even imprisonment, so Edward and a few close friends have formed their own Club where they can meet without fear of persecution. When Edward’s grandfather dies, Edward is heir to his estate but before he can lay claim to it, he is brutally assaulted, his injuries resulting in complete memory loss.

Months later, Thomas Marsden finds him working as a stable boy on a country estate. Thomas takes him back to London, hoping to find a way to have Edward’s memory restored to him, and remind him that just before he disappeared, they had declared their affection for each other.

Can the two men build a life together or will Edward’s disability be too much of a hurdle to happiness?

Reader Advisory: This book contains some violence and attempted sexual assault.

I must start out by saying that I never read this genre. The blurb caught my attention and I thought I would give it a try. I thought this was a good story and I really liked Edward and Thomas and how their relationship built. I thought it was a little farfetched that almost every person was gay or was okay with being gay, that seemed out of place for the time period, or what we are all lead to believe would have happened then. I would have liked more information on how Edward dealt with his memory loss and less on the mystery of who done it, only because I don't like mysteries. For having not read this genre before I will have to say I liked it.
