      This review was written for Before the Season Ends.
      Before the Season Ends was delightful for the 1800 setting. I was disappointed that it had to go into a 2nd book for the main characters to unite, but as a first book it was interesting and I was glad I read it. The one complaint I have about the writing is that Burkard did not explain all the colloquial terms she used in the story, so I googled them to help understand what was being said. For readers that enjoy fiction of the 1800s I would recommend this 1st book.

      This book seemed a little too forced to me. I enjoyed some parts, but the relationship between Ariana and Phillip seemed unrealistic. She continually recognized he was not a Christian, and finally sends him away to become one. That's a nice "bow" for a story, but unrealistic for real life. This book tries hard to feel like a Jane Austen novel according to the author, but it fell short of the mark for me. I felt that bringing the 2 characters together in the end, meant ultimately they were unequally yoked. Ariana had a deep appreciation, respect for and dependency upon God. Philip has no maturity in Christ other than a few weeks studying away from her. Overall, it is not a bad read and I have passed it along to a friend. However, I probably would not go out of my way to purchase something from this author again. Perhaps some of her later novels will reside better with discerning readers.

      Things that are included: *Period words listed in glossary in back of book. I REALLY appreciated this.

      I purchased this copy, and am volunteering my honest opinion.

      High Society does not win out where Love is

      You are transported to London where upper class has their standards. But love does not care about Society standards.

      Ariana would have married the wrong person had not her parents sent her to her Aunt's house. Her Aunt had no children and wanted to introduce someone into society.

      I especially loved where Phillip finds Ariana in a tree she climbed and he shielded her from eyes of Society. I believe one knows when they are drawn to someone - their soul-mate.

      I loved all the circumstances that put Ariana and Phillip together. The unfolding of the story from beginning to end holds your attention.

      Ariana is torn between love and her beliefs. But as one who took a chance on a new christian knowing God put us together, this part I know first hand.

      I highly recommend you prepare for an adventure.

      It is a nice story and I enjoyed the way the author protrayed the characters and their difficulties and personal struggles. There were a few incorrrect historical points, but not many people would notice them unless they were very familiar with the Regancy Era. Overall I liked the book and will add it to my collection.

      What an delightful story I enjoyed immensely.

      Loved all the characters especially Mr. Mornay for his willingness to be instructed by a young woman of her spirituality. Unheard of in that age, come to think of it, unheard of in this age as well. Arianna determination to hold on to her believe no matter what society expected from her. To stand her ground unwavering of family and friends and believe that He will do as promised.
