Here is an excerpt from the novel:

    The following is the scene where Marie-Louise first meets the young count:

    The next day didn’t bring the desired results. When Marie-Louise visited the Schmidt & Roth insurance company about her tuition payments, she was informed that Mr. Roth was out of town and not expected to be back until the following week, and no one else in the office was familiar with the case.

Wikipedia gives us these definitions of Steampunk: “Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction and fantasy literature and art that commonly features some aspect of steam-powered machinery, especially in a setting inspired by industrialized Western civilization during the 19th century. Steampunk works are often set in an alternative history of the 19th century’s British Victorian era or American “Wild West”, in a post-apocalyptic future during which steam power has maintained mainstream use, or in a fantasy world that similarly employs steam power…Steampunk perhaps most recognisably features anachronistic technologies or retro-futuristic inventions as people in the 19th century might have envisioned them, and is likewise rooted in the era’s perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, and art.
