After a season in London, Charlotte Lyons is still regrettably unattached. With her family’s finances in peril, she is sent away with her sister to a bleak coastal town where she is expected to pursue a wealthy Earl. Beautiful and talented, how could she possibly fail? But when her heart is captured by someone entirely unexpected, Charlotte finds herself caught up in a web of lies and intrigue. Between hardship and sorrow, she finds more than she bargained for, forced to choose between the life she once wanted and a new love she never imagined.
MY REVIEW / THOUGHTS:
First let's start with the cover. I wouldn't be able to to leave a book store without this beautiful book. I am a book cover lover. I often walk out of book stores with books just because the covers are so beautiful.
Now, I saw this meme on Facebook the other day and I thought it explained my thoughts about this book pretty well.
I loved this book so much, but there were a LOT of those feelings going on while reading. I LOVE it when an author brings out so many emotions in me.
Charlotte & Clara are banished to a little town called Caster, England after their father disgraced the family. Charlotte is sent to secure a marriage with an Earl. It was all she was raised to do. Marry a man for fortune and station.
Caster became so much more than that to Charlotte and Clara. They met Mrs. Abbot and her girls, and found out what it was like to live in a home with love in it.
This story captured me from the very first page. I read it in a day. Seriously, I couldn't put it down.
Newbold's writing is amazing. She brings the world alive. My heart ached. My heart blossomed. My heart screamed. Seriously all the feels in this book. The love story in this book is so wonderful and frustrating at the same time. Just fabulous.
