Publisher's Description

Roseanna White Debuts Sparkling British Historical Romance

Brook Eden has never known where she truly belongs. Though raised in the palace of Monaco, she's British by birth and was brought to the Grimaldis under suspicious circumstances as a babe. When Brook's friend Justin uncovers the fact that Brook is likely a missing heiress from Yorkshire, Brook leaves the sun of the Mediterranean to travel to the moors of the North Sea to the estate of her supposed family.

The mystery of her mother's death haunts her, and though her father is quick to accept her, the rest of the family and the servants of Whitby Park are not. Only when Brook's life is threatened do they draw close--but their loyalty may come too late to save Brook from the same threat that led to tragedy for her mother.

As heir to a dukedom, Justin is no stranger to balancing responsibilities. When the matters of his estate force him far from Brook, the distance between them reveals that what began as friendship has grown into something much more. But how can their very different loyalties and responsibilities ever come together?

And then, for a second time, the heiress of Whitby Park is stolen away because of
the very rare treasure in her possession--and this time only the servants of Whitby can save her.

    My personal Rating- Four Stars-ish

    Oh. I really should give The Lost Heiress a 3.5 star ratingbut oh. I so enjoyed it. I really like Lost Princess stories (the Barbie movie was my favorite when I was little), so I had high hopes for this one. The outward appearance of the novel is quite beautiful, especially the spine and back cover. At first, I was overwhelmed with the Character List at the beginning, but by 50 pages in, I had whos who. Some parts reminded me of Echoes of Mercy by Kim Vogel Sawyer , a favorite 4-star of mine. This one didnt have the villians POV, though, which was nice. I really ought to give a bit of a lower rating due to the kisses & Pratt, but since its been so long since I really truly enjoyed a historical novel! And ohmygoodness, Brook has to be one of the best heroines Ive read all year. The Lost Heiress was very well written, with humor (I laughed many times), drama, love & Faith.

    *BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.

    *I received this book for free from the Publisher (Bethany House Publishers) for this review.

    This review was written for #1: The Lost Heiress.
    The Lost Heiress by author Rosanna M. White is Book One in her Ladies of the Manor series. It is a 448 page paperback novel published by Bethany House Publishers. This Christian historical romance has a beautiful cover featuring a lovely woman in an ecru dress with pearls. It is set in the Edwardian period of 1910 and is a great book for Downton Abbey fans as well as English romance lovers.

    This was the story of Brook Eden and is filled with intrigue, mystery, romance, glamour, history, and inspiration by trusting in God. Brook's mother died in an accident when Brook was young, and Brook never went to live with her father but never knew why. At eighteen year old Brook learns she is the Baroness of Berkeley and decides to travel to England to meet her father. She has questions she wants answered. Her father is very loving and certain that she is his lost daughter, but some family members and even servants do not believe it. They have been scammed by others pretending to be the lost heiress. Brook is accompanied to England by childhood friend, Justin Wildon. He is a nobleman, the Duke of Stafford. The relationship he has with Brook is a rocky one at times.

    The author has a nice writing style. Her characters are well defined. There are so many characters she has listed them and their relationships to aid readers. Her descriptions are on point. I could imagine the scenery, people, and everything quite well. This was an elegant mystery with inspirational messages of faith, trust, priorities, love, and greed. The author had a well thought plot, nice dialogue that flowed smoothly, and enough suspense and mystery to keep readers guessing.

    I enjoyed this book very much and would definitely recommend it. I rated it 4 out of 5 stars. I received a copy of this book from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.

    The Lost Heiress

    Ladies of the Manor #1

    By Roseanna M. White

    Brook Eden has only ever wanted to belong. And when a recently discovered letter hints at where to start looking her dearest friend Justin Wildon undertakes the mission for her. Uncovering the truth of who Brook is the perfect gift Justin can give her.

    But good news is mixed with tragedy for both Brook and Justin as they leave Monaco behind for Yorkshire. A mysterious tragedy tore Brook from the arms of her family and now her return is looked upon with suspicion.

    As Brook settles into this new and unknown life Justin must settle into his new role as he deals with a long hidden family secret. Will these new roles drive these two close friends apart or lead them to something more than friendship? As the Baroness of Berkeley, Brook has suddenly become the most sought after lady of the season, but what does she want?

    All too soon dances and dresses are the last thing on Brook's mind when the mystery surrounding her mother's death comes for her. Will the long lost heiress soon be another tragedy? Or will those closest to her thwart the evil that seeks her?

    Historical fiction with a generous dash of mystery and romance will appeal to many readers. And at times you'll feel like giving both Brook and Justin a good hard shake.

    I was provided a copy of this book through TBCN/BookFun in exchange for my honest review.

    This review was written for #1: The Lost Heiress.
    I wasn't sure what to expect when I started the book. But, within a very short time, it grabbed me and compelled me to keep reading "just one more chapter." I liked the fact that it was more than a love story or an historic period peace. It has mystery, suspense, love, hate and all the good and bad characters that make a book interesting. I'm looking forward to reading another one of Roseanna White's books.
