....that failed to interest me.

And that's really sad. Because anything set in 1884 United States (this one's in Georgia) is of immediate interest to me. LOVE the era.

MISS MERRIWEATHER'S MARRIAGE is 24 pages long (minus the intro and extra pages). As typical for the Victorian era, Miss Merriweather's father has decided she's dithered around long enough and it's time for her to marry. He's conveniently brought his choice of young men for her to choose from, and choose, she will!

I found too much confusion in the opening pages as many, many characters were introduced all at once and I found myself guessing "is THIS the hero?" a few times before the story finally identified one of the guys as the Hero. There were redeeming qualities, of course-- fun secondary character in her grandmother whose opinion seems to have some weight (but not with Merriweather himself), the setting was rich with sensory detail (oppressive Georgia heat in summertime, many layers of women's clothing), rules governing fine southern gentility in the Victorian era).

All in all, not a waste of reading time, but sadly, did not captivate me. First in a series books (even novellas like this one) are meant to captivate readers and compel them to buy the next in the series (if not ALL) of them. Sadly, this one made it easy (for me) to pass on the rest.

Bummer. I really wanted to like it.

This is a short story set in 1844. It was fine for a quick free read and written well, but a little on the slow side.

Written about an era when wealthy Southern belles were expected to act ‘lady-like ’and marry within their station to their parent’s choice of mate, Miss Merriweather tries to rebel. Her father foils most of the young woman’s plans.
Finally she meets an acceptable man. Will he let her be herself and live a full life? Or will they clash, both independent and strong willed. The story tells the consequences of her choice and how she became who she really wanted to be.
Miss Merriweather’s story helps today’s women see how far they’ve come in being full citizens of their world, with the freedoms and choices we enjoy today.

Is a teaser for a series. Not much content. Southern Belle meets army officer. Could have been so much better

The plot of this story was a little tired, but the author gave a great sense of the characters, and the language and rhythm of the writing really brought me into the time period. Also, I love the banter between Millicent and Grandmama - sort of like a snarky repartee between the Dowager Countess and Lady Mary from Downton Abbey. Even the narrator a has a distinctive sort of wit - which I personally enjoy.

A satisfying romance for such a short story. I enjoyed the characters and the "proposal." I look forward to reading more from this author.
