I do, however, have a small quibble with the author. She, as do many writers today, simply uses the word 'alright.' There is 'alright' and 'all right' and there is a difference in meaning. Look them up, people and use the correct one!
This prequel is charming and introduces us to most of the Davenport characters, including a couple of new ones; Abigail, a teenage lass, trying to hide the fact she is Irish (but it might be difficult to continue her character as I have all seven Davenport House books) and gives a little background for Mary's friend Nellie, mentioned in Book #1. There is mother/daughter friction, as well as husband/wife. Mary's brother is a do-nothing mama's boy, just as in Book #1. Some things never change.
Well, it's off to Book #2 (as soon as I find it in my crowded Kindle).
Mr. Davenport (husband/father) thought his daughter was way too young for a suitor.
Pottsgrove, PA. Mrs. Baker asked Abigail “Abby” (12, Irish) to do the stores dishes & she would give her some fresh baked bread to take home to her family.
Abby also worked for Mrs. Stein (dress shop).
Mrs. Price (mom, housekeeper) was showing Clara Price (daughter, attending maid) the ropes.
Ethan (servant boy, stable hand) & Mary were growing quite fond of each other.
Dr. Jones came to see Mary,
Someone noticed Mary’s ball gown was gone.
Mary & Ethan hurried to the stable.
The foal soon emerged from the mare.
Mrs. Davenport wanted to see Mary’s new dress.
The servants worked ½ into the night to get the house ready for the debutante ball.
Mr. Davenport was helping to greet the guests that were arriving.
Those in attendance were: Mrs. Whitmore (mother), & Penelope “Nellie” Whitmore (daughter),
I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.
A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written family saga book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great family saga movie, or better yet a mini TV series. To be continued. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.

Was it so good that it made me want to read the series? Ehh. I wouldn’t mind reading the first book just to see, but I’m not dying to read it.
