Product Description

Cassie, the youngest of six daughters in the Wilton family, is bold, bright, and ready to enter society. There's only one problem: her older sister Lenora, whose extreme shyness prevents her from attending many social events. Lenora is now entering her third season, and Cassie has no choice except to wait her turn.

Evan Glenside, a soft-spoken, East London clerk, has just been named his great-uncle's heir and, though he is eager to learn all that will be required of him, he struggles to feel accepted.

A chance meeting between Evan and Lenora promises to change everything, but when Lenora proves too shy to pursue the relationship, Cassie begins to write Mr. Glenside letters in the name of her sister but her good intentions may lead to disaster.

As secrets are revealed, the hearts of Cassie, Evan, and Lenora are tested. Will the final letter sent by the vicar's daughter be able to reunite the sisters as well as unite Evan with his true love?

Much more than a romance!
By , Submitted on 2017-09-01

I expected this book to be a typical regency romance, but it was much more than that. Yes, there was romance, but it was more importantly a lesson in honesty, guilt, consequences, and forgiveness, including forgiving yourself. This is my favorite Josi Kilpack book! Great for all ages, but I want all my young friends to read it!

Absolutely loved this book. Beautifully written and completely engrossing. The audio recording was wonderful too.

Not a comedy

WHAT IT'S ABOUT
Cassie, the youngest of six daughters in the Wilton family, is bold, bright, and ready to enter society. There's only one problem: her older sister Lenora, whose extreme shyness prevents her from attending many social events. Lenora is now entering her third season, and since their father has decreed that only one Wilton girl can be out at a time, Cassie has no choice except to wait her turn.

Evan Glenside, a soft-spoken, East London clerk, has just been named his great-uncle's heir and, though he is eager to learn all that will be required of him, he struggles to feel accepted in a new town and in his new position.

A chance meeting between Evan and Lenora promises to change everything, but when Lenora proves too shy to pursue the relationship, Cassie begins to write Mr. Glenside letters in the name of her sister. Her good intentions lead to disaster when Cassie realizes she is falling in love with Evan. But then Evan begins to court Lenora, thinking she is the author of the letters.

As secrets are revealed, the hearts of Cassie, Evan, and Lenora are tested. Will the final letter sent by the vicar's daughter be able to reunite the sisters as well as unite Evan with his true love?

MY TAKE
This is the second Regency I've read by Kilpack. It started out with another main character who was a bit selfish and self-centered but Cassie does have a good heart. When the letter writing began, I thought it was going to be Cyrano de Bergerac kind of comedy. Nope. Kilpack doesn't seem to go into light-hearted.

Things went bad once Cassie started falling in love with the man in the letters. It was hard to read the series of events that followed and was a little startling after my comedy expectations. But as I said, Cassie has a good heart, and she accepted responsibility for her actions and had the courage to face adversity to limit the impact her actions would have had on others.

Her parents bugged me, her mother especially. She might have been married to a clergyman, but she wasn't very Christian in her attitude about a lot of things. But she had some things right, so there was that saving grace.

The resolution is sweet and well worth the rough journey to get there.
