Guest Review from Donna Cline
What I think you should know:
The Elusive Miss Ellison by Carolyn Miller is the first book in the Regency Brides: A Legacy of Grace . The story is set in 1813 England with Lavinia Ellison the daughter of a small village minister and the New Lord Hawkesbury.
What I think about this book:
While the story was slow going at first , it did a good job of letting you get to know the characters and what made them who they are. Lavinia was almost an antihero when compared to the typical heroine in Regency Romances. Instead of being raised as a Lady of privilege she has been taught to devote her life to helping others, she nurses the sick of the village and helps provide food and education to those less privileged. I enjoyed watching Nicholas mature from a selfish young man into a man who cared for those around him. I enjoyed the interaction between Lavinia and Nicholas . The second half of the story moved at a much faster pace. The message of the Gospel was presented beautifully and naturally in the story. I look forward to reading the next books in the series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Celebrate Lit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.
About the Author
More from Carolyn
Mr. Darcy has a lot to answer for, doesn’t he?
I’ve long been a fan of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer, and my first historical romance, The Elusive Miss Ellison, was so fun to write as I worked to weave the social commentary of Jane Austen with the wit and romantic dash of Heyer, an unwavering Christian thread, and a dash of Aussie perspective.
I’ve been very fortunate to visit many of the settings used in my Regency Brides series (of series), including the Cotswolds, Brighton, Bath, London, Derbyshire and the gorgeous Scottish castle featured on the cover of Misleading Miss Verity, and have loved seeing readers respond so positively to these stories of hope, redemption, family and love.
) and hope readers will enjoy being swept up into an age of ladies and true gentlemen, when the code of honor was paramount, and Mr. Darcy showed that first impressions can never be fully trusted, and that there is always something deeper to the story.
Happy reading, friends!
