Willowkeep (Regency Romance) Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

The one reason I didn't give it all 5 stars is because I thought more it more in Charlotte's character (she was a strong minded individual) that if she realized she didn't fit in to high society, she would have done more to work on social manners, or would've sought to learn, either from a book or a person. This is a small detail though. Loved the ending where she finally comes to herself.
Henry Morland is the steward of Willowkeep. His father was the previous steward, but after he retired he took to gambling and is now in debtor's prison. Henry works hard to save as much as he can to pay off his father's debts before he dies in prison. He lives on the grounds of Willowkeep with his sister, Jane.
I really liked this story. The main characters were good people trying to do the best with the hand they were dealt, although their troubles stemmed from decisions made by their fathers. I loved the characters of Charlotte and Henry. She was so kindhearted to everyone, and he cared about her from the start and would do anything for her and Susie. I enjoyed the running joke about Jane's lack of cooking skills--Henry and Jane both got sick from her cooking. At first I wasn't sure about Hurst Harwick, since his mother was to inherit everything before his step-father changed his will he wouldn't have access to Willowkeep's money. He turned out to be a pretty decent fellow, unlike his scheming, and conniving mother, Nora. I was so happy when Charlotte stood up to her.
I would've liked to have had more of an ending for Jane and Hurst--did he ask her to marry him? I didn't agree with how Nora's treachery was handled. Charlotte and Henry didn't even threaten her with the possibility of going to the police--after all she bribed a maid to frame Henry with the theft of Charlotte's jewelry and at the least Henry's reputation could've been ruined. I don't think she should've overlooked that and allowed her to continue living with them without a major apology or some form of restitution.
This book is a squeaky clean romance.
Julie chose to touch on many issues that still seem difficult for our society to understand; handicaps, depression, suicide, and death. She was able to shine a light on them in a way that revealed the heart of the problems and she helped her characters work through them in healthy and productive ways.
I'm grateful she has decided to share this story, which I can't help but imagine is a lovely reflection of her heart, and am eager to read her other works.
