Book Review: The Lady of Milkweed Manor



Even a proper vicar’s daughter can make a mistake…and now Charlotte Lamb must pay a high price for her fall. To avoid the prying eyes of all who know her, she hides herself away in London’s forbidding “Milkweed Manor,” a place of mystery and lore, of old secrets and new birth.

But once there, she comes face to face with a suitor from her past–a man who now hides secrets of his own. Both are determined, with God’s help, to protect those they love. But neither can imagine the depth of sacrifice that will be required.

Sprinkled with fascinating details about the lives of women in Regency England, Lady of Milkweed Manor is a moving romantic drama about the redemption of past failings and the beauty of sacrificial love.

My Review:

If you’ve never read Julie Klassen and love historical romance, change your ways, immediately. Pick any one. You won’t be disappointed.

I purchased Lady of Milkweed Manor at the Oregon Christian Writers conference while I had a little down time and needed a mental “break.” Klassen immediately took me to a different time and place and I was wrapped up in Charlotte’s story. The details of life in this time period felt real and I was fascinated by the lives of wet nurses.

Rich characters, realistic settings and resonating conflict — Lady of Milkweed Manor is Julie’s first and one of her best.
