Interesting story about two siblings who travel to England to find rich spouses after their father loses his fortune in Philadelphia.
I liked the hero Andrew who was a landscape architect and the fact that Kate loved gardens. She had a noble obligation to do what was best for her family but her heart had other ideas. Likewise, her brother Christopher, found love in an unexpected circumstance. They both sought God to resolve their problems and learned that they had to listen to God and not go off on their own way.
I l8ke to learn about historical events and this was a good peek into the exhibition instigated by Prince Albert in 1851.
* I purchased a copy of this book from a library sale. All opinions are my own.*

Ransome's Honor has a lot in common with one of my favorite books, Persuasion by Jane Austen. The main characters are both older with the maturity experience brings. The navy plays a large part as it is central to both Julia and William's families. A close-knit group of family and friends are easy to fall in love with, and an engagement that never happened is in their past. It's truly a pity that Julia and William were such frustrating characters who acted the opposite of their established backgrounds.

This was a fun read. A wedding planner (Anne) meets up with a man (George) to plan his wedding - but all is not as it seems. George is not really planning his wedding - he is planning the wedding of his client, a celebrity who wishes to keep things super-secret. So when Anne starts falling for George, and vice versa, an enjoyable story unfolds. I especially enjoyed the scenes with Anne's family and the Southern setting. Definitely good for a romantic escape.
