As Charlotte drew closer to the looming grey edifice that was to become her temporary home, she could not help but notice the secretive shuttered windows. Then she noticed the milkweeds . . .
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.
I've had Lady of Milkweed Manor sitting on my shelf such a long time...so long, in fact, that I don't remember where I got it. After reading it I'm wondering why on earth I've waited so long to read it. I think it is safe to say that Julie Klassen in one of my favorite authors. Love her books!
But back to Lady of Milkweed Manor, which I believe was Julie Klassen's first book, we get to meet Charlotte. She's been banished from her home and sent to Milkweed Manor. While there she runs into someone from her past that ends up being a big part of her future. But what part does this person play her in future? You will just have to read it for yourself to find out. ;)
I really don't think you can go wrong with a Julie Kassen book...I've love every one of her books.
