Completed this today and wow this is one of the first few manhwa I have read that was able to sustain itself without the addition of romance. The characters, their motivations and the overall story comes with this sense of realism that stops it from seeming outlandish and the character dynamics here are great! It does a great job of not simply falling into the tropes prevalent for the genre.

Definitely some of the better manhwa I have read and one I would recommend to anyone who likes an understated mystery/thriller and is on the lookout for some great female characters!

I enjoyed it , I didn't feel bored. The story seems simple in the beginning but it has some mystery and twists. The characters' development is impressive. It makes you feel warm and optimistic. The art is great , too. The thing (in my opinion) that made me not rank it 10 is that it's not romance. I like romance manga and I read it cause of the tag romance but there is not a single love relationship. Also, the ending is rushed, I wanted to see more about the characters' future. I like the story progress but I'm frustrated!! Generally, it's a unique manga with new concept.

This story capture my heart through it's display of characters and real world issues. Although set in the late 1800s to early 1900s, the misogyny is something we all experience today, so I could relate to it really well. The plot itself was capitvating, with a clever twist helping it. 

The romance was mistagged though, not even a single ounce off fluff or romance to be seen here. I suspect so because the ending was a little rushed, hence the 8/10 and not higher. 8/10 would read again. 

Trigger warnings: physical abuse, misogyny.

Does "strength" only mean physical strength in a person? Of course not! A person's conviction, the ability to remain honest regardless of what situation they're in, and believing in their talents is also a person's strength, I believe. 

The conviction of the two ladies, Charlotte (a maid) and Anna (a noblewoman) is marvelous. There's no unnecessary romance involved and the story progression is well-paced. 

But I felt a lot of information that was needed was left out.

woah. I just read what's currently out in english and just... wow. This story is like when a misunderstanding happens. You think you know what's happening and you have all the puzzle pieces but then it turns out that puzzle had a piece of the same shape from a different puzzle and when it's all put together, everything makes so much more sense. I typically don't like sudden plot twists but this is different. I love this story. You can understand some characters you hate. Others are harder to understand but still ok if you keep in mind the time period. The main character is relatable (in my opinion) and also super amiable!
