This is surely a story I will want to read over and over again. Refresh and try again. Aug 23, Julie Carpenter rated it it was amazing Shelves: I would have to strongly disagree with the general claim that this is written in the style of Jane Austen. Even though I spend most of my time rushing around like a hummingbird on meth, I dknaldson myself a true romantic at heart in that whimsical, day-dreamer kind of way.
There, you can write all your own opinions without having to deal with me. It’s funny with a hint of intrigue. Every time I read this I secretly hope that Cecily julianns get her own book.
Luckily, no one else seemed to be paying attention. She particularly excelled at the witty repartee between the main characters and developed the second string beautifully to support the narrative. Eleven years passed and I never once touched that doll, not even to feel her hair. Kent County, EnglandUnited Kingdom. En cierta manera me ha decepcionado un poco.
Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson Content Rating and Review | The Literate Mother
There were no unique problems anyone had to solve because of the time period. Recomiendo “Edenbrooke” a cualquier lector, es un libro de los que se quedan en tu biblioteca para siempre. While Cecily is enjoying the social life in London, Marianne has been rusticating in Bath with their grandmother for the last fourteen months, since their mother died and their father took himself off to France to grieve alone.
Adding this to my to-read list on Goodreads! This was a very well-done Regency period novel. Self-admitting less attractive younger women unknowing to herself falls in love with dashingly handsome and rich heir to an estate.
I read this book in less than 12 hours.
Yes, I can be as fastidious as Mr. Edenbrooke is a grand, magnificent home, resplendent with elegance and luxury.
She and her husband live in Salt Lake City, Utah, with their four children, but she takes every opportunity she can to travel the English countryside.
I am going to re-read it over again and again! They escape after Marianne’s maid Betsy takes a shot at the masked man and he disappears, but not before shooting their coachman.
I would recommend this for grades 7 and up. You might have concluded that somebody had confessed to necrophilia. I liked that she was outspoken and determined one moment, and shy and blushing the next.
Donaldson shows great promise. She may run away tonight and never come back. I adore Georgette Heyer and her Regency romances and was excited that I might find a new favorite author in this book. I have read both of her books now and truly wish there was more for me to read!!
I stayed up really late in order to finish the second half of the book. Nov 11, Floripiquita rated it it was amazing.
I was in fact, a lot like Meg horsewho had always been a racehorse. I was not impressed. Do you picture beautiful people, interesting locals, society, foppish men, stately manors, and lovely gowns? I picked it up to read just a few pages before getting out of bed but didn’t quit reading until I finished the book.
It’s bizarre and overloaded with emotions and expression. Overall, a light and fun regency romance. Or she edenbrooje have seen the DVD cover of the movie version. Marianne is in need of a friend and someone she can talk to and trust. The same man her beautiful blonde, fonaldson eyed, supposedly refined older twin sister along with several other eligible girls has been trying to ensnare for over a year. I was addicted and throughly enjoyed it.
