I was pleasantly surprised by this book. The characters were interesting, and the described setting beautiful. While it was pretty archetypal to the genre, the plot did hold a surprise or two. The best part, as a reader, was knowing that as a "Proper Romance" there would be no explicit content. Very sweet and enjoyable over all.
The story begins so: Marianne is desperate to return to her country home after a year stuck in Bath with her impersonal grandmother. Then, surprisingly, that self-same grandmother abruptly declares Marianne to be the new heir to her fortune..the only catch? Marianne must attend a house party and learn what it truly means to be an elegant lady - which includes having to wear a bonnet and not go running about the countryside. Can Marianne, still grieving for her mother, find the inner strength to become a proper lady of fortune? Or will the simpler life prove too tempting?
The person who reviewed this book was my sister, Drama Queen. She loves Romance books and recommends that this book is appropriate for teenagers.
