Read in May, 2010

This romantic book was unique because of Polly’s obsession with the rich society of the early 19th century. She speaks like the characters in Pride and Prejudice and Anne of Green Gables. Polly’s interest in that era makes the story even more romantic. I tried to picture Polly in the society she so loved. I have read the children’s editions of those two books, so I was familiar with the stories they told.
The idea of bringing lovers together is sweet, but Polly realizes that she may have bitten off more than she could chew. She meant well, but she learned that you cannot force lovers together. If they are meant to be together, it will happen naturally. I like the idea of romance blooming in its own way, just like Polly and Bradley’s love for each other.
