I haven’t read this book yet, but I had seen it in the Christian Book Distributors catalog and thought it might be interesting. I reserved a copy at the library and they called when it was available this week.

Because my husband works closer to the library than I do, I sent him to pick it up for me.

That was three days ago and HE has already finished reading it.

He said it was a great story and he liked the characters. He likes character-driven books even if he doesn’t know the exact term for it.

The book is set in Regency England. I’m trying to write an Regency now.

I wish I could spend today reading the novel. But I need to write.

Since my post today is courtesy of my family, I’ll tell you what my son wants to be when he grows up: The first Doctor/Lawyer/Trumpet player in space. It could happen, I suppose.

What is the book about:

Charlotte Lamb, a fallen vicar’s daughter, hopes to secret herself away in London’s grim Milkweed Manor. But once there,she is mortified to find herself in the care of a former suitor, a physician whom her father long ago rejected as unsuitable, a man who now hides secrets of his own. Both are determined, with God’s help, to protect those they love. But neither could guess the depth of sacrifice that will be required of them.
