I like these family series as I enjoy meeting up with other characters I know and love! In this aspect, this book is no different from her others. Ms Burrowes has a distinctive style of writing, which I enjoy, but it does require slow-ish reading to ensure that the correct allusion has been understood! I particularly liked the Author's Note at the end, which gave the poems which had been mentioned in the book. I would definitely recommend this, but, if you are one of the few who do not like her books, just don't read it!
There are no mysteries, no murders, no spies, no Big Misunderstanding - it's just a lovely, warm story about two people finding each other and falling in love, and I can think of no better recommendation. When you can write as well as Grace Burrowes, and give us characters who feel as though they are real people, you don't need to spin an adventure yarn as well in order to "fill in the boring bits". Because the "boring bits" are where the characters interact and talk to each other; they're where the relationships are explored and developed, and that's very rarely boring in my book.
Louisa and Joseph are social misfits and more importantly, seem as though they're each half of a whole. Louisa is outwardly confident and sometimes outspoken where Joseph is self-effacing and reticent; but where Joseph exudes an inner confidence with who he is, Louisa has spent most of her life trying to be the daughter she thinks her parents and society think she should be. They have a passing acquaintance, as neighbours, but a friendship soon develops between them which quickly grows into love. They don't say it (not until right at the end of the book) but it's there on the page, in all they think and do.
I adore books like this, in which the evolution of the relationship between the hero and heroine feels completely natural, and which doesn't require lots of fancy plot twists and turns to keep the reader interested.
We get to see a lot of Louisa's large family, too; it's nice to see siblings and spouses who are all happily getting along rather than jostling for position.
The book is beautifully written and is full of affection and humour.Read more ›
When she is compromised by a total jerk, Sir Joseph offers for her and she accepts - YES!! We wanted this marvelous man to have the kind of future he deserves. Much is eventually revealed about Sir Joseph's past - some sad things - but also some marvelous things as well which only serve to make us love him more.
Lady Louisa has a past of her own that she doesn't want to come to the forefront, but her husband is pretty smart about his lady and what troubles her heart so much, isn't at all the kind of thing to give him pause. Everything works together to make for a wonderful HEA at which all the family manages to be present and take part. I have read this book more than once and will probably read it again at some point in the future.
But, Lady Louisa is something else, its like its been written by someone else, its not written like any other of the Grace Burrows books, its boring, written in a complicated way and has ended up being one of those books where you skim the pages just to hurry up and get to the end. Just one big massive disappointment.
There are still some books to go until the books on the sisters have all been read, whilst I will buy them and read them, I really hope there not the same as this one.
