I liked it, but I can't say that I'm in love with it. I felt that some parts lost my interest, while other parts kept me interested. ( )

3.5 stars, for now. :) This started slowly for me, but after about 1/3 through, the pacing seemed to pick up, or maybe I was glad to be away from Fanny. ;) Another lovely retelling/re-imagining by Price, but not one of my favorites (even though Marianne/Brandon is my favorite Austen couple) in this series. Still, worth reading and I will be reading Mount Hope, the next in the series. I highly recommend this series as a whole. ( )

Sarah Price does an amazing job with this story and unfortunately for me I had it all read in less than a day, I wanted more, and there was with the epilogue, which I loved.
When Henry’s oldest son takes a vow on his deathbed to take car of his family, and John agrees, you could feel the sick man’s sigh of relief. Of course, things are not about to be running smooth, when John’s wife banishes the family to the dawdi house, and talks her husband out of giving them the money he was supposed to give them. I hated that she had Maggie’s favorite climbing tree cut down, could really dislike Fanny.
Wait until you see what God has planned for Eleanor and Mary Ann, and will choose correctly? What a read you are about to experience, and once you start you won’t be able to put it down.
We meet manipulators at their worse, and you want to shake them, but we can only hope that these girls will come the their senses and follow God’s plan for their lives. We find that sometimes, the evil some people display does come back to haunt them, and then I felt sorry for them also.
Don’t miss this great read you won’t be disappointed!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Realms, and was not required to give a positive review. ( )
