Love for Lady of Milkweed Manor
This book review is for "Lady of Milkweed Manor" by Julie Klassen.
I am a huge fan of Jane Austin and that is what Julie Klassen's novels remind me of. Which of course means that I love them! Even in saying, however, that they remind me of Jane Austin, rest assured that Julie definitely has her own style! I cannot say enough about her work and how she pulls you into the story. I sat down to read this and ended up finishing it in one setting. You just want to keep turning the next page to find out what is going to happen.
Charlotte Lamb is the daughter of a, quite proper, Vicar. She has one sister and her mother is long dead. Being a Vicar's daughter, however, does not mean that one won't fall. And Charlotte will end up paying the ultimate price for her indiscretion.
Sent away in shame, Charlotte is sentenced to while away at the dreaded Milkweed Manor. Shunned from her family and her heart lost, she comes face to face with an old potential suitor who has more than enough problems of his own.
Charlotte is inevitably faced with one of the hardest decision she can be asked to make. Painful as her life may be, will she find the good in what is left of her circumstances?
The book has some amazing details of what life was like for women back in this era so you feel like you are learning something as well as enjoying a wonderfully done story! It also helps to remind us that no matter the person or circumstance, no one is immune to sin or to making a mistake.
Kudos to Julie!
Hope you all are having a fabulous week!
