Great Historical Romance

Fourteen year old Lavinia is living a hard life made easier only through the love of her mother. When her mother dies Lavinia faces extreme poverty, but a surprise relative arrives and offers her a life of luxury. But Lavinia discovers that her new life comes with a price when she's betrothed to Mr. Keeling, a Viscount's son, a man whose coldness repels her.

This is a sweet clean Regency romance with a heroine you'll want to root for! I do love a rags to riches story, and I thought Lavinia's personality was well fleshed out. George Keeling was harder to know, but the second half of the book described his motivations well. There weren't many interactions between the two, but I liked the other relationships portrayed in the book just as much.

The narration was really well done, with distinct voices and a performance that pulled me right into the story. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Easy Listen!

This is a clean Regency Romance. It reads easily and quickly, has an usual and sad beginning but then changes its course and lightens up.
I feel for the heroine because she seems to be a pawn in the marriage market and has some really unhappy moments to deal with, but she comes out on top in the end and there is a really lovely happily ever after.
I enjoyed this story and Marion Hussey does an interesting narration - all together, I am happy to recommend the ebook/audiobook.
I requested and listened to the audio version and my review above is given voluntarily and is unbiased.

Who Will Become the Husband of Lavinia Dean Talridge?

First I just give praise to Marian Hussey! She did an excellent job of narrating this story. She is to be commended.

Lavinia has had her heart broken when her mother dies when she is but fourteen years old. Now Lavinia is destitute and left with no money or family. Then an older woman comes to her home in Coats Cross, her name is Henrietta Talridge, Lavinia's grandmother. Henrietta tells her all about the love her son had for her mother.

Now Lavinia is suddenly wealthy, and her grandmother has set up an arranged marriage now that Lavinia is eighteen. The Viscount of Walton has made arrangements with Lavinia's grandmother to see his second son, George Keeling.

The Audiobook gets even more exciting from here to the end! I highly recommend that you get this Audiobook and read it yourself in order to find out what happens. Who does Lavinia end up married to? What happens to George? This Audiobook is incredibly awesome
