Therefore, this book was a delight to read. I enjoyed the overall theme of the text, but the mystery and intrigue, which accompanied several of the characters, kept me wondering till the very end of the story. This was truly a book I could not put down.
Isabella Bankmill struggles with the feelings of her heart. After meeting Lord Bromby at a ball, she does not seem to understand the way she feels in his presence. Could she be falling for him? There are so many stores surrounding his character—some of great scandal--which makes her question her own judgment. However, she cannot lie to herself. Lord Bromby is quite charming, and she wishes to help him regarding his religious misunderstandings. David Beringer may be noble, but Lord Bromby appears to be stealing her heart.
David Berigner admires Isabella. Everything about her matches what he would look for in a future wife. However, he believes she would not be interested in someone like him—for many, Lord Bromby is much more dashing and seems to be the type of man most ladies prefer. So why would Isabella ever look his way? As he continues to become more acquainted with Isabella, David feels friendship might be the only definition to their relationship.
I enjoyed the construction of this book, because it was set up into parts, which created distinct scenes and moments concerning the lives of each character. This type of break allows the reader to reflect and to better understand the passage of time within this time period, while also considering what each character might be feeling throughout various moments. If you love stories containing a touch of romance, mystery, and danger, especially tales with an historical twist, then you will enjoy reading Lee’s book.
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the author for my copy....more
