MY REVIEW / THOUGHTS:
This was such a fun book to read. I picked it up one night and was not able to go to bed until I finished. I loved it so much.
When Annette and her brothers were left with their aunt when their parents passed away, Annette had to take care of her brothers, and protect them from their Aunt.
The boys always seem to be getting into to trouble, and Annette is always taking the blame to protect them. One day it became too much for the Aunt and she sent Annette and her siblings away to the Kellaway Manor. She told them they couldn't return until the boys were better behaved, and if they weren't they would be sent to an orphanage.
Kellaway Manor was like a dream come true for Annette. The Kellaway's were dear friends of Annette's parents and welcomed Annette and the boys with open arms. All of them were happy to be with the Kellaways, and then the story begins.
There is mischief, friends, family, and new romances happening. This story was so beautiful. The writing was so beautiful, I was engaged from the very first words. The characters were so fun, and entertaining. I love the world that Newbold built and once you start reading, you will not want to quit.
This story had all the feels for me. It had humor, romance, friendships, a beautiful historical setting and love. What can be better than that? Pick this book up for yourself, you won't be disappointed.
