I loved A Noble Place. From the start I rooted for the strong female lead, despite or because her well motivated flaws. While Pippa struggles to save her family from financial and social ruin, she overcomes many obstacles in a time when women are not supposed to breed horses or run businesses. But she sacrifices her heart's desires, or rather buries them deep inside, to achieve her goals. She has to climb an even rockier path to find true happiness.
This is a pioneer story of personal struggle against an alien environment.
From the first page of A Noble Place, readers will cry, fight and strive with Phillipa through all her hardships, until she discovers what it is she really wants.
