About the Book
Release Date: December 3rd 2019
This YA Historical Romance was so unique. It has Jane Austen feels, including quotes from Pride and Prejudice, and Vicky often asks herself what Elizabeth Bennett would do in her situation. The setting took me into the world of Jane Austen with the carriage rides and dance cards. I enjoyed all those fun nuances found throughout the entire novel.
Vicky is stuck in the worst position she could’ve imagined. She thought she was safe from marriage but due to unforeseen circumstances her parents have told her she’s to be married by the end of the season. Vicky always dreamed of taking over the Oakbridge estate but now she finds herself dealing with not just one potential suitor but two while fighting off feelings for her childhood friend who’s turned up after five years of being away. Although society tells her she needs to be submissive given her role as a woman, Vicky is not afraid to speak up for herself and those she loves even if it gets her in trouble. As the story line evolves, and she finds herself surviving multiple attempts on her life, Vicky starts to question who she can trust.
This book included themes that we don’t usually see in a historical novel which I found refreshing. You’ll see themes of domestic violence and various ways it may have been handled in the 1800’s. It doesn’t go into in depth details but it is something that triggers a set of events that’ll keep you guessing. It is also filled with mystery, romance, love triangles, family dynamics, and forgiveness.
