    When I ask where a story has been set I want to know about the country and if there is a purpose behind the author settiing the story in that country. When referes to which century meaning during the 18th century when there was clear demarcation between the rich and the poor or when women were not credited with any intelligence and their whole aim was to trap a rich man to marry them. The clues I am asking for are in regard to what kind of a story do you think it is- suspense-filled, romantic or triller etc.
