A joy to read.
5* Review by
Mrs Jennifer Black
When Mrs Bettismore died in 1816 her last words to her granddaughter were “there is something I should have told you.” It means nothing to Amelia at the time, but comes to haunt her later. Raised in the old lady’s strict household, she inherits her grandmother’s fortune, but is unprepared for life on her own.
However, her farsighted grandmother appointed Saunton as initially an unwilling guardian and his noisy household of widowed mother and loving sisters is a total shock to Amelia. The idea of joining in Christmas games and going riding in the snow terrifies her. This young lady is far from the madcap heroines of some Regency novels, but Amelia is strong-willed in many ways and it is a pleasure to read of her steady acceptance of a different way of life.
The author’s grasp of the manners of the time is impressive and details of Amelia’s clothes and fashionable surroundings are never overdone. All are neatly woven into a truly delightful story with light touches of humour sprinkled throughout. A joy to read!
