A modern Bronte or Austin? I think so.
on 13 August 2014
It has been a very long time since I have read something new that grabs my attention. I started to read An Unlikely Duchess and found myself caught in the spell woven by Nadine Millard. I read the whole book in a single day - I found it impossible to drag myself away from it - literally pausing for food....and that's it! Ms Millard describes the longing and depth of feeling between the 2 main protagonists so clearly that I felt I was a true witness to their romance rather than a reader of a book. I thoroughly enjoyed the historic references and gorgeous imagery used. I had purchased her second book, Seeking Scandal, before the night was out.
