A rich cast makes for an entertaining story in this traditional Regency. A mysterious young woman is discovered unconscious and the nearby family takes her in. With her memory gone, she must remain under their care, which of course gives her plenty of time to fall in love with the lord of the manor.

This was my introduction to Carola Dunn, and won't be my last book of hers by far! Her characters are filled with flaws and quirks making them so lovable. The plot twists keep the story interesting a

This was the book that introduced me to the "regency" genre when I was in eighth grade. Currently rereading and am enjoying in the ??th reading as much as the first.

It is very different from a modern romance, in that so much of the story as well as the thoughts and feelings are told to the reader, rather than shown. This is not my favorite style, but it gives the flavor of a Jane Austen, or Georgette Heyer novel, so it is fitting.

By the end of the book, you just love the characters and hate to

The story hinges on Miss Fell's memory loss.
Amnesia resulting from both trauma and injury removes her memory so the Carstairs family call her Miss Fell, for Daws Fell where she was found. Lady Annabel of Toblethorpe Manor takes the young woman as a lady while her son Richard worries they might be elevating a runaway servant out of her class.

I have enjoyed all of Carola Dunn’s regency books I have read so far. They are a nice, quick, easy read and they have a Jane Austen feel to them. Each book is different enough from the others to feel fresh and her enjoyable writing style is consistent.
