5.0 out of 5 stars A satisfying read, 13 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bella's Betrothal (Kindle Edition)
Anne Stenhouse's most recent book, Bella's Betrothal, is even better than the previous one, Mariah's Marriage. This time, there is the added interest of an Edinburgh background to the unfolding plot. The historical background sets the scene without overwhelming the reader with too much detail, there is a big cast of appealing characters and a gripping plot to keeping you turning the pages. The main character, Isabella, steps into the picture from a troubled past in London to make her home in an Edinburgh whose streets and squares are familiar to anyone who has visited the city.
The atmosphere of the city and the manners and attitudes of the people who inhabit the book all ring true. We can imagine their conversations continuing long after the book has ended. But the main focus of a book like this has to be the developing relationship between the two main characters, Isabella and Charles, sorely tested by a dramatic series of events that threaten to destroy her new-found happiness in Edinburgh. Right from the first page we are drawn into the twists and turns of their relationship and their growing love for each other. This is a satisfying read for all lovers of historical romance with an authentic background, strong characters and an absorbing plot.
