Characters are well developed, Conversations in keeping with the times, and a whole bevy of beautiful young ladies desiring to marry...but they have to do so on order! Some mysteries I am sure will be uncovered by the end of the series.
1) Amy: The oldest daughter, Amy, is meek and shy. She has never once rebelled against any of her Papa's rules. Now that he is gone, he tries to follow the rules that he laid out, but despairs of finding a husband. She is 24 and has not had one offer. When Mr. Ambleside learns that Amy's father is dead, he drops everything to rush back and court her. After her father's third refusal for Amy's hand, he had left the county but now he has hope. Unfortunately, word is out about her large dowry and he must be devious about ridding himself of competition for her hand. I liked Mr. Ambleside and his maneuvering to keep Amy from accepting another man. I liked Amy at first, but as the story progressed I decided that Amy wasn't so much shy as she was simple-minded. In fact, I think she had the IQ of a kumquat. The story is nicely written and definitely evokes the Regency era. 2 1/2 Stars
2) Belle: Of the six sisters, Belle is the only plain one. She is also bookish and a little on the managing side. Her youngest sister, Hope, has just turned 18 but for the last two years she has had the love of the curate, Mr.Burford. Belle hopes to marry soon so that Hope and Mr. Burford can then find their own happiness. It's just too bad that she soon discovers that she and Mr. Burford would make a perfect couple. 4 Stars
3) Connie: Now that it is Connie's turn to find a husband, she is determined that she will not wed a controlling man like her father. When the Marquess of Carrbridge comes to the village to visit his aunt, she is rather smitten with his good looks and his title but doesn't believe that she has a real chance to "catch" him. The Marquess is tired of women chasing him for the wrong reasons, but when it seems he is becoming entranced by a gold-digger, his brother comes up with a way to make him see reason. 4 Stars
There are no sexual situations to offend any readers
The stories are well written, characters nicely drawn ... sketched, really, so we get the outline and can fill in for ourselves, which I find satisfying. And the characters are consistent throughout with clear personalities and behaviors.
Each match is distinctive with strengths and foibles ... the storytelling is straightforward and very pleasant.
