Happy Friday! Welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books! This week I’m highlighting a book I just completed for my January TBR.
This week’s book selection is: Lady of Milkweed Manor by Julie Klassen.
“When first I knew her, I thought her an amusing scrap of girl, silly and a bit grubby from her mornings spent in the gardens.”
About Lady of Milkweed Manor
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.
