Loved this book. It is interesting to follow the history and work of maids before the time of modern conveniences. ( )

Can't really get into this one right now. Maybe it's because I was listening to the audiobook? Haven't had many good experiences with audiobooks....

Might finish this one later.

When you dwell on a set of characters long after the story has been read and the book put back on the shelf, and then you start counting the days until you can pick it up and re-read it...that's a great book. The Maid of Fairbourne Hall is such a book.

Margaret Macy, the spoiled and selfish daughter of a dead Vicar, isn't my normal cup of tea. It was the stepfather that first caught my attention ~ as well as my imagination. Ms. Klassen weaved a well thought out plot with plenty of twists and turns, as well as sub-plots; all without missing a beat or having too much in one story. The characters I thought I was going to like? I didn't. The characters I thought I wouldn't like? I did. Capturing my attention almost from the first page, I left laundry in the dryer, dirty dishes in the sink, and even allowed this book to steal some precious hours of much-needed sleep.

This is my first Klassen novel. It won't be my last as she managed to gain the attention of this non-historical reading person and pull me into a world where her characters refuse to let me go.

Well done!

The Maid of Fairbourne Hall
takes readers inside both the fascinating above stairs and below stairs worlds of a 19th-century English manor, where appearances can be deceiving...

I loved this book!

Adventurous Regency romance kept me fascinated from beginning to end ~
the storyline had abundant intrigue.
The timing was perfect, keeping me turning all 400 pages!

Margaret worked on many of my emotions as her character
developed from frustrating to favoured.
Realistic characters, true to the age and era depicted, added to the authenticity.
[Though using the appropriate English spelling would add more to its authenticity]

The faith aspects are handled well and accurately to this historical period;
An addition to the story rather than a distraction.

A highly recommended book!

A great movie of the period that interconnects perfectly,
is "Amazing Grace".
It provides relevant background info on the sugar plantations
that bear on the storyline.
A highly recommended movie! ( )
