Julie Klassen’s The Maid of Fairbourne Hall

If I had to pick the best regency novelist of this day and age I would pick Julie Klassen. Regency is hard to do. I think it requires a lot of reasearch because the little things matter. If anybody has read Jane Austen or Georgette Heyer they completely understand. Well, Julie Klassen gets the little things right. Every book she has written I enjoy, but today I’m featuring The Maid of Fairbourne Hall. This book is so enthralling, and the romance so sweet. Margaret Macy (the heroine), a socialite who lives in a bad situation, flees home disguised as a maid. The book is as much about her changing as her falling in love. There’s even a little mystery thrown in. The book walks you through Margaret’s awakening to know God as she interacts with people she never paid attention to before. Great read and I’m looking forward to Ms. Klassen’s new book.

Does anyone have a favorite regency book or author that’s different than Ms. Klassen?
