About the book:
For as long as she can remember, beautiful and free-spirited Isabel has strained against the rules and rigidity of the Fellsworth School in the rolling English countryside. No longer a student, Isabel set her sights on a steady yet unexciting role as a teacher at the school, a safe yet stifling establishment that would provide her a steady environment to care for her younger sister Lizzie, who was left in her care after her father’s death.
The unexpected arrival of a striking stranger with news of unknown relatives turns Isabel’s small, predictable world upside down, sweeping her and her young charge into a labyrinth of intrigue and hidden motives.
You know how when you pick up a book and wonder why you waited so long to get it read? This was one of those books. I truly wanted to savor every page, and yet loved the story so completely.
It was not that it was not a bit fanciful, but it just had the flavor of so many books that I have loved before. I found myself immersed in the story, shutting out everything else around me and wanting more. It made me want to go back and re-read the others by this author as well.
This lovely Regency tale of an orphan being taken advantage of by wealthy relatives was not a new story, but told in a unique way that captures your heart.
