I enjoyed it very much more than I thought. I have always loved historical novels and always feel like I am “coming home” when I read them.
The story was full of wonderful characters. Of course, Annabel steals your heart from the very beginning. And then all the characters that she meets along the way. Including her best friends and, of course, John Hartley, who steals your heart from the start. Excellent character development. I felt like I knew the supporting characters as well as the main characters.
It is full of little adventures, suspense and unexpected twists, sadness and sweetness, and a wonderful love story.
This was a perfect read for me and just what I needed right now. This is exactly the way of writing that I love. I just added about 10 more books by this author to my wish list! This will not be the last!
This is basically a story about three people: Annabelle, an orphan raised by a healer/midwife, John, a second child, and Eliza, John’s sister, who is the core around which the story unfolds. But all the characters are well nuanced, with flaws and benefits. Eliza, single and about to give birth, seeks help at the medicine man’s shack.
Annabelle gives birth to the baby but she worries about Eliza’s survival. She exhausted, she falls asleep and realizes that the baby is crying and her mother is gone. I’m sure everyone will think that she somehow hurt Eliza and they will accuse her, she runs off with the baby. This sets the stage for her harrowing experience in the slums of York and John’s determined search for her and her baby. It is also a moving portrait of real life in England in 1850. Very well written. First author for me, I will read more of his books.
This is a very engaging historical novel by AnneMarie Brear and the first of her books that I have read. Annabelle Wallis’ story is a beautiful one, set in the lush English countryside, transported to another place and time by the author’s delightful descriptive writing. I was immediately in Victorian England, in a huge country house. I got to see the lovely country house where Annabelle was raised by the Widow Wallis. It was easy to imagine the cozy little
house surrounded by flowers and grasses, which are a wonderful place for Annabelle to grow up.
But when Annabelle suddenly finds herself alone for the first time, she is filled with fear and doesn’t know what to do with her circumstances and how to survive without her beloved guardian to guide her.
Suddenly trapped in a situation that is nothing short of surreal for the innocent and sheltered Annabelle, she must make decisions that will change her short-term life and change the life she has known for a long time.
I absolutely enjoyed Annabelle’s story, she drew me in and didn’t stop reading until I finished. I’m not normally a fan of romance novels, but this one kept me hooked until the end. I highly recommend this historical novel to all fans of the genre, it’s a beautiful story with a wonderful feel-good ending. You will not be disappointed.
