Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer PS
After finding out that her father has lost all of their money and cannot support the family, Caroline Fortune has to make her way into the world. Her father gets her a job as the paid companion to a former fellow officer. In her new position, she finds that her boss is very unpleasant and is suddenly let go. But her luck changes when her estranged aunt and uncle invite her to live with them. In her adventures, she creates good friendships and discovers the difference between love and romance from her own relationships and the indiscretions of all the people she meets along the way.
Being a big fan of historical fiction, I thought that the idea of the plot was really interesting. But the author's writing style was really dry and I couldn't really get into the story, no matter how much I tried. The characters were really strong and well developed though, which made reading this a little better. I would recommend this to lovers of historical fiction, romance or fans of Jane Austen. Also, Jude Morgan does have other books out with just as intriguing plots, so I will definately give this author another try.
