Product Description

The year is 1818 and Miss Beatrice Forsythe is determined to marry well. After all, her sister, Ariana, married The Paragon, Mr. Phillip Mornay, five years earlier--which all but guarantees that she, Beatrice, can also make a famous match to a wealthy man.

But her sister and husband have disappeared from high society as they raise a family at their country estate. Can Beatrice persuade them to chaperone her in London? And what about Beatrice's business with the curate, Mr. O'Brien, whom she rashly promised to marry years earlier. At seventeen now, she has no wish to marry a mere clergyman-despite his agreeable countenance and gentle, understanding ways.

When Mr. Tristan Barton becomes the tenant of the Manor House, Beatrice's hopes seem to have found their object. But when Ariana falls gravely ill, secrets come to light, motives are revealed, and the pretenses that are easy to keep up in the darkness begin to crumble. Hearts are bared, truths uncovered, and when all is said and done, a country house courtship like no other has occurred!

ChristianBookPreviews

The Country House Courtship,/em> by Linore Rose Burkard weaves the story of Beatrice Forsythe and Peter O’Brien into a rich cultural background of 19th century England. When O’Brien is offered a nearby curacy, Beatrice remembers the promise she made at age 12 to marry him and is mortified, yet is attracted to him as well. Then Tristan Barton, a seemingly well-to-do gentleman from London, moves into the next-door manor, and Beatrice is attracted to both men.

Using a style of writing reminiscent of Jane Austen, Burkard narrates the familiar struggle between marrying for love or money. Changes in point-of-view make certain scenes confusing, and some readers may be disappointed in Beatrice’s lack of development as a three-dimensional character. Yet, the changes in Beatrice’s ideals by the end of the story are refreshing, and the detailed historical descriptions of England intertwined in the narrative are also fascinating.

The themes of The Country House Courtship echo 1 Samuel 16:7—“The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” Those who have read Burkard’s previous books covering the story of Beatrice’s sister, Ariana, will especially enjoy this book, but so will anyone who enjoys a good romance or has a love for English history and culture. – Ruth Anne Burrell, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
