Mariah is a young woman living in nineteenth-century London. But the accepted and expected pursuits of a lady of her age and class are not for her. Mariah is independent and ahead of her time in her outlook. She teaches poor children who would otherwise have no education. Her commitment is wholehearted. The she meets and falls in love with Tobias Longreach (I just love Anne's choice of character names). But pursuing this relationship brings her work into question and even endangers her life.
Great storytelling, conscientious attention to detail, credible and interesting characters all make for an absorbing read. And there's plenty suspense, intrigue and romance too.
A warm and satisfying read.
Type of read: Romantic enchanting escapism. A curl up with your e-reader of choice and a glass of something red and full-bodied and prepare to indulge in some delightful escapism.
Mariah and Toby are real flesh-and-blood characters and I loved their story - look forward to hearing more from Anne Stenhouse.
The heroine, Mariah, is feisty and determined and from the first time we meet her with Tobias Longreach (and a pig!) we know we are in for a great read.
Without wanting to spoil the plot, the villain is particularly well drawn and the period detail skilfully woven in to the story and to the dialogue.
The course of true love certainly doesn't run smooth and there are a number of edgy episodes culminating in a finale where Mariah is in serious danger.
This is a book which will appeal to many readers and not only to fans of Regency novels.
I was surprised by the level of character development in such a short novel, and by the end I was racing through the pages to reach the dramatic finale.
Well done Anne Stenhouse and I will be on to your next work imminently!
This was so much more than a romance & I ended up reading the whole book in one sitting.
This book has piqued my interest in historical romances & ill certainly be looking to read more from this author soon.
I received this from the author in return for an honest review.

This is the second book I have read by Anne Stenhouse. It has pace and adventure with an engaging heroine, who does not allow others to make decisions for her. Read morePublished on 21 Jan. 2014 by Mrs P-j Brindle

The story runs well without boring passages. a bit dated but that is what it is intended to be.
