I'm plugging right along!
Book 6 / 75 : Lady of Milkweed Manor by Julie Klassen.
I read another one of her books, The Apothecary's Daughter, last year when I first got my iPhone. I downloaded the free kindle app and then that was one of the first free books that I downloaded and read on my kindle app. It was a really good book!
Lady of Milkweed Manor was just as good... and it turns out, this was Julie's first book!
Another great book! It had so many twists and turns from the first page to the last, I was always surprised.
From the Author's website:
Even a proper vicar's daughter can make a mistake…and now Charlotte Lamb must pay a high price for her fall. To avoid the prying eyes of all who know her, she hides herself away in London's forbidding “Milkweed Manor,” a place of mystery and lore, of old secrets and new birth.
But once there, she comes face to face with a suitor from her past--a man who now hides secrets of his own. Both are determined, with God's help, to protect those they love. But neither can imagine the depth of sacrifice that will be required.
Sprinkled with fascinating details about the lives of women in Regency England, Lady of Milkweed Manor is a moving romantic drama about the redemption of past failings and the beauty of sacrificial love.
The bottom line is that this book shows us how God knows the bigger picture and weaves all things for the good of those who love him. It is so subtle and though God and His plans are not the main focus of the book, when you put the book down after reading the last paragraphs, you will feel an overwhelming sense of how great and amazing His plans are.
Great book! Go borrow it from your library today!
And at that, I also recommend The Apothecary's Daughter. Good book too :)
