The Country House Courtship
by Linore Rose Burkard
Eugene, OR: Harvest House Publishers
"The Country House Courtship" by Linore Rose Buckard is billed as an "Inspirational Romance for the Jane Austen Soul." That is a high standard to aspire to, but this book lives up to it! This is the third book in a series focusing on the Forsythe family, living in Middlesex, England in the early 1800s. I haven't read the first two books, but was quickly engrossed in this tale which focuses on the younger Forsythe sister, Beatrice. She is a young woman eager to experience a London season and hopes of making a wealthy match. Mr. Tristan Barton seems to offer all that she wants, but when a country clergyman begins to capture her heart and she is forced to face her sister's life-threatening illness, she must make difficult decisions about what matters most to her.
"The Country House Courtship" will appeal to all those who enjoy romantic stories of status and manners. It is an extremely delightful read!
