Excerpt: Every single lady of marriageable age was eager for security. It was the ultimate goal, whether she chose to acknowledge it or not.”
With the distinctive flair of Jane Austen and a setting befitting Poldark, The Thief of Lanwyn Manor brings us the story of Julia Twethewey, niece of the well-off Lambourne family. When William Lambourne inherits Lanwyn Manor and its accompanying mine, Bal Tressa, the family relocates to Cornwall and Julia journeys to serve as her cousin Jane’s companion when her adventures begin.
A bold, brave gentleman by the name of Isaac Blake steps up to rescue Julia, but little does she know how deep into his family drama she will be drawn. Julia quickly meets Matthew Blake, the elder twin brother of Isaac, and the competitive nature of love is challenged. The story shines a light on societal issues of the time; the plight of the working man in the mining industry, the issues of status and rank, and the turmoil of being a young, single woman with minimal resources.
A wonderful Regency novel! The characters, the language, the romance and the mystery are a delight to explore in this tale.
