This book was such a pleasant surprise to a reader getting tired of the 'same old thing' with regency romances. I didn't want porn... I wanted a story that could capture my imagination, wouldn't butcher the time period, and had characters you could believe actually fell in love. This was the book to fit all of those criteria! Donaldson created such a wonderful world to escape into with excellent character development and storyline. This is a very well written book that you will find yourself falling in love with! I started re-reading passages immediately after finishing the book because I did not want to leave the story.
Anticipating her next book greatly!
Donaldson writes in a commentary at the end of her book that Georgette Heyer was one of her influences. I adore Heyer's books and Edenbrooke had a very similar feel with the exceptions that it moves a lot quicker and there is more of a love story in Edenbrooke than Heyer put into her longer novels (something I always wished for more of). As stated above, you really feel like these characters could realistically fall in love.
The hero wears his heart on his sleeve while still being masculine and the heroine is daring and unconventional while still being true to the era and social constraints on a female.
Highly recommend this book (one you will want on your shelf and your Kindle)!
The heroine, Marianne, is innocent and endearing even if she does blush a lot. When a visit to a country estate puts her in the path of Phillip, the heir of Edenbrooke, she has to choose between her happiness and her sister's. But first she has to understand her heart and trust Phillip's.
And Phillip, where to begin? Yes please!!!! Could Donaldson have written a more perfect character? If I weren't already married if fall in love with him myself!!!!
SEX: none, a few great kisses
The character's twin sister, insensitive, frivolous and self-consumed, does a bit of an about-face at the end, in the name of happy endings. Some of the heroine's details -- the motion sickness, the fainting and crying, the small stature, the silly twirling, the accident-prone behavior -- are a little tiresome. Fortunately, her painting skills are a good talent, and her sense of humor shows up in the clutch.
