Cassie, the youngest of six daughters in the Wilton family, is bold, bright, and ready to enter society. There’s only one problem: her older sister Lenora, whose extreme shyness prevents her from attending many social events. Lenora is now entering her third season, and since their father has decreed that only one Wilton girl can be out at a time, Cassie has no choice except to wait her turn.
Evan Glenside, a soft-spoken, East London clerk, has just been named his great-uncle’s heir and, though he is eager to learn all that will be required of him, he struggles to feel accepted in a new town and in his new position.
A chance meeting between Evan and Lenora promises to change everything, but when Lenora proves too shy to pursue the relationship, Cassie begins to write Mr. Glenside letters in the name of her sister. Her good intentions lead to disaster when Cassie realizes she is falling in love with Evan. But then Evan begins to court Lenora, thinking she is the author of the letters.
As secrets are revealed, the hearts of Cassie, Evan, and Lenora are tested. Will the final letter sent by the vicar’s daughter be able to reunite the sisters as well as unite Evan with his true love?
I really,really,really wanted to like this book. I was interested in this book because it was published by the same company that published Edenbrooke and Blackmoore by Julianne Donaldson.
I’m always ready to step out of my comfort zone when it comes to reading books because I think that is the only way to find a good read.
The synopsis sounded very interesting so I decided to give this book a go. The beginning started out really well and it kept my interest at first and not to mention the book cover is beautiful. That’s one of my weaknesses is to read a book with a beautiful book cover.
As the book progressed I lost interest pretty quickly.
I was just disappointed because the plot sounded so mesmerizing but the book just didn’t do it for me. It fell flat. I’m not giving up on this author just yet but this book just wasn’t a
favorite of mine at all.
