Mistakes that seem like a tragic poison bring about healing and new life in Julie Klassen’s debut novel, Lady of Milkweed Manor. In Regency England, the vicar’s daughter, Charlotte Lamb, has been banished from her home and disowned by her family when she discovers she is pregnant out of wedlock. After refusing to name the child’s father, she flees to a manor for unwed mothers and registers under a pseudonym. There, she finds herself in the care of a former suitor, Dr. Daniel Taylor, whom her father deemed unworthy and has some secrets of his own. As they try to protect those they love through incredible sacrifices, they find healing, redemption, and true love.

This novel is remarkably well written. The characters are realistic and easy to sympathize with, and the narration has a poetic gracefulness about it that brings to mind such authors of classics as Jane Austen and the Brontë sisters. While it is clear from the first pages of this novel that a vast amount of research was done, the information gathered is worked into the novel seamlessly. The one glaring flaw occurs in the final decision Charlotte’s character makes in regard to her child. Without giving anything away, the phrasing of her explanation seems incredibly cold and clashes with the maternal love she has displayed throughout the novel.

This novel is by no means a cookie-cutter love story. Whereas the ending is a happy one, it doesn’t go for the corny or a quick-fix of the character’s problems. The characters have depth, and the story is both inspiring and true to the pains of life. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good romance, but wants more than a “boy meets girl, boy gets girl” story. -- Shannon Potelicki,

    This review was written for Lady of Milkweed Manor.
    I always eagerly anticipate Julie's next novel . . . in fact, I might say a bit impatiently! :-) I am an avid reader having very few favorite authors. Ms. Klassen is definitely in the top three under that banner!

    I am almost finished reading LOMM for a second time, this being the only book to read twice in all my years of reading historical romance! It's positively as interesting on the second go-around! Her latest offering was released this week; I'm anxious to finish this and begin a new adventure through excellent writing!

    Very unique plotline, but it didn't keep interested

    What a journey! Its a very unique story with lots of twists in it.

    At first, I was really captivated by the singularity of the plotline and the circumstances our main characters were when they met again, but I thought: there is no way this can work for them.

    I could see the Regency Period through new eyes, because, really, Im used to the nice side of it: elegance, balls, ladies, gentlemen, drawing rooms, and so on; but this book taught a bit of how it was like not be wealthy in that time, or to be pregnant but not married. It was interesting, I learned a lot!

    Also, it was really good to grow with the characters, they went through a lot, and the reader with them.

    However, I must say my interest went down when I reached about 33% of the book, but Im not sure why. I think it might be because the events changed so fast that it was hard for me to really connect to what was happening, and I feel the characters themselves didnt catch up very easily either, because they acted as if some twists hadnt affected them at all.

    There are some decisions characters made I couldnt understand, because they seemed so incongruent to their personalities and purposes in life that it was obvious to me they did it only to force the story to be something it wouldnt have been otherwise, which is not good. Plus, I did not like how easy everything got solved at the end.

    Its very good story, unique and all. It taught me a great deal, but I couldnt be drawn in as much as I had been in the beginning.

    Heartbreaking and Beautiful Story

    This review was written for Lady of Milkweed Manor.
    This book is a gem. It's not the normal happy romance novel. This book is deep and powerful and it will move you. I could feel Charlotte's pain with the decisions that she had to make. It was heartbreaking and yet beautiful at the same time. This story isn't just about love between a man and a woman, but it is also the love story between a mom and her child. Charlotte made some choices that sent her on a difficult path in life. As humans we all make the wrong choice sometimes and things will get difficult, but we must keep living and try to make things better for ourselves. This story will touch your heart in many ways. As sad as the story was, it also had happy moments and made me smile. It was well written and a beautiful story that I had a hard time putting down. You will love Charlotte as well as some of the other characters. I would easily recommend this book.

    I really have a deep appreciation for Julie Klassen and the gift God has given her to write with such depth.

    It is as if Jane Austin's world has returned, only we get to see a little bit of that society's underbelly. She writes with sense of compassion that is lacking in some Regency era novels.

    I also recommend the audio version of this book.

    Please read it for yourself. You won't be disappointed!
