I'm just going to come right out and say it has been a while since I've read a really good historical romance. I love them, I do, but there seems to be some recurring themes in which the ones I've read recently turn out to be the same barn, just with different paint. I was, as you can probably imagine, rather happy to find that Banished Love wasn't that same barn.

Clarissa Sullivan is a bit... let's just say clumsy. Leaving the school where she teaches to immigrant girls on a rainy day, she rushes to quickly get to her uncle's store. Ignoring the closed sign(her uncle is always happy to see her), she rushes straight in and runs right into the ladder that Gabriel McLeod is on top of, causing him to fall to the ground with a quite a few injuries. Meeting him sparks Clarissa's journey through social prejudice as she must learn to look past what society, and her own family, think and say and follow her heart.

I really loved this! Thanks so much to Ramona Flightner for showing us the world of 1900 Boston through Clarissa's eyes. I absolutely adored her spirit and found this story to be way more than just a romance novel. I recommend for fans of historical romance, or good quality fiction in general. Very descriptive, I always felt like I was right there in the story. It sort of reads like one of your favorite Hallmark movies(anyone who knows me knows how much I love those!). I'm curious to see what's in store for us next from this author.

*I received this book to review from the author. However, this in no way affected my review.*

To write a historical romance story in this day and age has to take a lot of time and a huge amount of love for the story. The way Ms. Flightner depicts Boston in the early 1900’s was fascinating. The descriptions were amazing, almost as if I were watching a movie. The vivid details were marvelous and the characters were extremely easy to associate with.

Clarissa is our female main character. We get to follow her as she struggles to find her own voice and earn her families acceptance for who she is. What I truly appreciated about this story is how the author, Ms. Flightner, kept Clarissa’s character and personality true from beginning to end. No matter what obstacle that was presented, we as the reader knew what the right choice was, however what is right for us was wrong for Clarissa. It was truly comical watching her make some monumental mistakes, and navigates her way through societies standards. Throughout the entire read, we are able to witness a girl slowly emerge into a woman with her own thoughts and her own ideas.

Keeping firm to the history of romance and courting in the early 1900’s, there is very little smut. Kissing is chaste and very well placed. The longing that Clarissa endures keeps the reader on pins and needles. The entire read is like one huge foreplay scene with just a kiss as the reward. However, that kiss is worth a thousand words.

I simply adored all of the supporting characters. If you are not familiar with this era you really have nothing to worry about as far as being able to fully grasp the plot. Ms. Flightner does an exceptional job at detailing how personal etiquette was highly demanded in order to be socially accepted, especially as a
woman.

Anyone who has nursed a newborn knows that there's not much you can do at the same time. But with a bit of practice you CAN read... and by reading escape to a world where the challenges are refreshingly different from your own. Many thanks to Ms Flightner for providing me with such a great escape shortly after the birth of my daughter (who is just two days older than the novel).

Banished Love evokes a world that is rich in historical detail (who knew that gentlemen and ladies had DIFFERENT chairs in Victorian times?), ripe with romantic intrigue and astonishingly well plotted for a first novel - right up to the cliffhanger ending. Plenty of dialogue keeps the pages turning and the characters are well defined - including a few truly villainous villains that you will LOVE to hate. I was also particularly impressed by the ease and subtlety with which Flightner captures the relationships between the likable young men in the novel - presumably not an easy task for a female writer with a female protagonist.

I am much looking forward to the second novel in this series - I am eagerly anticipating Ms Flightner's descriptions of the western experience in Victorian times... and of course, I can't WAIT to find out what happens next between Clarissa and Gabe!

I picked up this book because it was talking about the suffragettes, which I am intensely interested in. Ms. Flightner did an excellent job not only of crafting believable likeable and some dislikeable characters but I think very much grabbed the essence and attitude of the times. I seriously would not have survived back then. Women had no rights and some were so scared of rocking the boat as it might mean they were ostracized and left out in the cold… literally. Women really had to compete against each other to get the best man.

I loved Clarissa and her struggle with breaking free of the invisible ties that bound her to being a dutiful woman, learning the proper etiquette for how to be social and how to run a proper household. There were times I got so ticked – that’s how well written it is – at the oppressive nature and the beliefs that what woman say didn’t matter. There is also an interesting romance budding but Clarissa has chosen beneath her which is not okay and creates all kinds of problems.

It is such a good journey of seeing what women and some men who wanted change were up against. I absolutely enjoyed this novel and I highly recommend it. I am so looking forward to book Two. Exceptionally well done.
