The Lady's Blessing

-This book was given to me in return for an honest review-

I absolutely adored this novel.

The Lady's Blessing is a fantastically written historical romance.  The main character, Felicity, was realistic and yet retained the ideals modern women value.  Felicity may seem a bit weak to modern readers- always needing to rest and feeling faint- but to readers who love historical fiction, it is details like this that make a historical character realistic.  Women did feign headaches when they were too emotional and wanted to go lie down.   Felicity is demure and well behaved as any lady of this time period should.  And yet she retains her spunk.  She knows who she is and what she wants, and on occasion she shares that quite adamantly.  Her brief moments of spunk were awesome.

I also loved the relationship development between Felicity and Graham.  Too often romance novels skip straight to the sex.  I much prefer to see the relationship build and grow.  The gradual way Felicity comes to love Graham stole my heart, and the inclusion of Kate, Graham's daughter, in the story was beautiful.

Fans of Jane Austen's work will love this book.  If you are looking for a short, well written, beautiful, historical romance- this is the story for you.

5 out of 5 stars for The Lady's Blessing.
