Book Description

4 Jun 2001

A forgotten past hides the key to the future.

Meredith Stratton, at forty-four the owner of six elegant international inns, is about to celebrate her daughter’s engagement. At this seemingly happy time in her life she begins to suffer from a strange illness that baffles everyone. Her doctor cannot find a physical cause for her debilitating symptoms, and, desperate for answers, she seeks the help of a psychiatrist. Through therapy Meredith peels back the layers of her life to discover the truth behind her most careful creation – herself. Determined to get well, Meredith traces her roots back to another country where she learns about childhood experiences that dramatically changed her life. What she discovers is not only the key to the past but to her future happiness and fulfilment as a woman.

Moving from the Connecticut countryside, the busy streets and suites of London, Paris and New York, to the pastoral beauty of a château in the Loire, Her Own Rules is an exciting and suspenseful novel about secrets, survival, redemption and love.

3.0 out of 5 stars lady alone 3 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Chose a middle lrating as I found it slightly boring. Since I have always read this authors' books I was very surprised. It became very obvious half way through as to what the ending would be. Very few highs or lows and I was relieved to finish it. If you like a Mills and Boon type book then this is for you

I was so disappointed in this book. It was so predictable but of course nothing can compare with Woman of Substance. I managed to finish it but really was bored by it.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC 3 May 2007
By Mrs. A. M. Chadwick VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Over the years I've read a lot of Barbara's books, (and will be placing other online reviews of her works).

This novel follows the story of Marygold/Meredith, she returns to England where she was originally from before she was adopted and then raised in America. She desperately wants to find where her real mother's grave is but can't find it, she then tries to trace where her mother was buried and she gets a surprise with what she finds out!! Whilst in England she also falls in love with a beautiful stately home which she decided to buy as she wants to renovate it to its former glory.

That's all I'm going to say as I know you'll enjoy this novel and I really don't want to spoil it for you.

By the way if you love the novel, it was also made into a film which is also worth seeing. :-)

I really enjoyed this novel; I found it a compelling read. :-)
