The world has changed enormously in the last 100 years. Downton Abbey spent six seasons running through how the world changed drastically from 1912 to 1925. The advent of computers and the internet in the 1990s has given the world today as massive a shift from 2002 to 2015. With the world having altered in such a vast manner, the world of the 1600s is one so foreign as to be alien by today's standards.


And because the first season, in all its rawness, smoothed the introduction from acquaintances to old friends between premiere and finale, these new episodes are a relief, emotionally speaking, compared to the freshman run's tone of gutter-verité which, though impressively honest, made "The Deuce" tough to watch at times.


Only later does Johannes appear and present her with an extraordinary wedding gift: a cabinet-sized replica of their home. It is to be furnished by an elusive miniaturist, whose tiny creations mirror their real-life counterparts in unexpected ways . . .Available now in paperback and ebook.
