To escape a scheme to marry her off to a dishonorable man, Margaret Macy flees London disguised as a housemaid. If she can remain unwed until her next birthday, she will receive an inheritance, and with it, sweet independence. But she never planned on actually working as a servant. And certainly not in the home of Nathaniel and Lewis Upchurch--both former suitors.

Emma My answer is yes. That is my opinion, and I don't know about other parents or young teenagers themselves. I think a 13 year old girl can read this.

First posted on my blog, Legacy of a Writer.

Julie Klassen is the 21st century's Jane Austen! I knew she was good after reading The Apothocary’s Daughter, but The Maid of Fairbourne Hall really blew me away. Open this book and Klassen will transports you back to the early 1800s, in England, when upper-class Margaret Macy suddenly finds her life altered to that of a lowly housemaid.

The first character that struck me the strongest and grabbed my attention was wild-mannered and dashingly good lookin

I'm not one for the fangirl "OMG YOU HAVE TO READ THIS" stuff, but Julie Klassen’s books have tempted me to engage in some literary peer pressure. "It's not a preachy inspirational, trust me!"

I was drawn to her books by the intriguing titles, beautiful covers and well-written blurbs, and all four of her previous novels exceeded my expectations. I've read them all several times, and I still can’t decide which one to add to my Desert Island Keepers.

This is the first book of Julie Klassen that I have read and it will not be my last. I did not think I could enjoy and get as involved in a book as I did with this one.

I want to say one thing before giving my review of the book. Don’t give up on the book. The book is a slow start and I was myself tempted to put it down and skip it. I am so glad that I did not and continued reading on. The story gets better and better and really does a nice job tying everything up at the end.

I enjoyed this one much more than the last couple of Julie Klassen novels I've read. It may be because the heroine wasn't being punished for being a "fallen woman." Thankfully, this one was much less heavy and preachy, not so full of judgment and condemnation. At the most, some Bible verses and a few quick prayers were all that reminded me that this was a Christian romance, thank God. I do like to read a good romance that focuses more on the emotional aspect of love rather than sex scenes, but a ...more

I loved this book!!!

This is the second book I've read by Julie Klassen and I've loved both books so very much!! Julie Klassen is my new favorite author! I was sad when I reached the last page of this book and immediately thought, I need to re-read this book again some day. I loved reading about these characters. I loved reading as Margaret Macy's character developed and changed as she became the person she was in the end, as well as the others who became better and better as the story unfolded.

Continuing on my Klassen splurge...all 400 pages in about 24 hours! It's very hard to put down one of her books. This one was so enjoyable, and the historical research was great. And I loved Margaret/Nora and the hero so much!

Margaret Macy must escape her home to protect her virtue, inheritance, and future! Her step-father has ordered his scoundrel nephew to court, woo, and even compromise (if necessary) his step daughter, Margaret, in order to force marriage between them and obtain control of her inheritance. With no funds readily available and no family nearby, Margaret disguises herself as a maid and leaves her family and home. In just a few months she will be old enough to claim her inheritance and can come out o ...more

I've had a really good reading streak lately. I've read some GREAT books! I've been depending more on my blogging friends to recommend books before requesting them, and it's made my reading time SO much better. (Thanks y'all!!!)

I'd already read from several bloggers that this book reminded them of Jane Austen. So, while reading this book, I was in the "Jane Austen" mindset. I enjoyed this book so much that if it wasn't for the huge pile of books I need to read, it would have been a perfect oppor

In the fall of 2008 I first discovered Julie Klassen in her debut novel Lady of Milkweed Manor and fell in love. Pretty much as a matter of fact many things I said about that novel still hold true again to this one.

Upon finishing this novel, I sigh in complete contentment. This is near one of the best novels I have ever had the opportunity to fall deep within the pages and stay for a while.

From beginning to end I had my opinions of how things should go, with the slight twists and turns I never

I have collected all of Julie Klassen's books, and I have to say, that this is one of the best. This book swept me away to another time and place, and I was so sad when the book ended, because it meant I had to leave. I love Regency-era England, and the descriptions in her books make me feel like I am there. I really got acquainted with Maidstone and Fairbourne Hall and the characters. I like the fact that characters who are not main characters are still rounded and developed. Excellent book, ex ...more

Y creo que darle 2* ya es mucho...

Grandísima decepción. Lo único que se salva (un poco) es al final la relación de amor. Del resto nada, se pasan gran parte del libro que si te cuentan como limpiar, como hacer una cama, temas religiosos y así el día a día de las sirvientas e intentan meter una trama de intriga que se queda en nada.. aburrido y lento.

One of Klassen's better novels, Fairbourne Hall is a sweet Regency Romance with a faintly Christian tone. A well-to-do (somewhat spoiled) young woman is forced to flee her home when her step-father threatens to stoop to sordid means to force her marriage to his ne'er-do-well nephew, in order to gain access to her inheritance. She seeks to survive by assuming the role of a maid below-stairs, in what she belatedly learns is the home of an old acquaintance.

As many reviewers have noted, the novel h

So far I have enjoyed reading the majority of Julie Klassen's historical romances. This one was no exception. The concept intrigued me from the outset, and the way the author pulled me in kept me reading was well done. At first the heroine wasn't very likable, but the author changed that by putting Margaret in a very humbling situation. Then the hero wasn't very likable, but once I was inside his head that all changed as well. I've never read a book where I disliked both main characters right of ...more

I blame my recent lack of adequate sleep and lack of focus at work on this book. Not only did it have me pushing it when it came to bedtime, the next day at work I kept thinking about lunch (aka reading time) and what was going to happen. I should have known this was going to happen, because that’s what happens when you read a Julie Klassen novel.

And it was definitely no different with The Maid of Fairbourne Hall.

And I’ve decided she’s the Jane Austen of today.

Writing a good regency must be a great deal more complicated than it looks upon first appearance. But when done in the correct and proper manner, good regency shines like the silver by which “Nora” polished belowstairs in Fairbourne Hall.

For anyone who has read even just a little of this period of fiction, one would not expect a rich society girl to one day be attending a masquerade ball and the next scrubbing a chamber pot. But as crazy as that sounds, the plot of the story perfectly supports M

The Maid of Fairbourne Hall is a delight! The story initially plunges the reader into a swift river - and it doesn't take long for the current to change, transforming Miss Margaret Macy into Nora, the maid of Fairbourne Hall. While the pace lessens off and on, the intrigue continues and historical details, as well as some back story, flow expertly throughout the pages.

And let's not forget the romance! When the heroine finds herself in the home of a spurned suitor and a would-be love interest, so

eeeeexcellent historical fiction. light on the angst, light on the religion. **4.5 stars**

should be a hit with downton abbey fans, as it features a lot of the upstairs/downstairs manor house details.

pg13 light green for a tiny bit of peril, some ruination, a duel, and a boat burning ;)

I enjoyed this book. It was fun to see Margaret's life as a maid, and the dream kiss was lovely. However, I had some major complaints about it, too. First of all, I felt that the main character wasn't portrayed consistently. She was spoiled and prissy but also carefree and funny. She was impulsive and thoughtless, but also very thoughtful about other people's feelings. She was a proper young woman who also loved to ride horses and frolic about the countryside with her dog. You get the idea. I co ...more

This kind of reminded me of Jane Austen’s Persuasion, with a twist. There is a bit of a lost-love story going on, which I’m always a sucker for. Margaret flees her home one evening and finds employment in the home of a man who once proposed to her. She wears a disguise and becomes a housemaid. I liked the changes Margaret goes through during her story. She starts off a bit pampered and kind of self-centered, but as the story progresses and she starts to actual work her personality softens and sh ...more

I love the amount of history I know I will get when reading a Klassen novel. I love the deep characters and the twisting plots. I think this is my favorite of all her novels. I loved Downton Abby and loved being pulled back into the world of servants and the upper-class. But this one had a great twist with the spoiled rich girl learning a great life lesson.I was disappointed at first that the love interests got little time together but by the end the tension that she had built threw out the nove ...more
