Lady Walmsley, widowed and childless, is in need of a lady’s companion—and who better than the lovely Lady Elizabeth? Determined to rescue Elizabeth from her dreary life in the country, Lady Walmsley secures the help of Kit, the dashing Earl of Cantwell, in her quest. But the young woman they find is a ghost of the charming girl they once knew. Taken in by Lady Walmsley, and with Kit’s enthusiastic encouragement, Elizabeth finds herself pushed further and further from her empty solitude as she discovers the joy of truly living. Now, for the first time in her life, she must decide for herself who she is and if she deserves to be loved.
In the time of quarantine for Covid19, this book is a heartwarming romantic read.
Elizabeth’s life is pretty sad. She’s neglected and abused, and she does what is expected of her regardless of how she feels. In fact, there’s much she doesn’t even know about herself. That’s where her new friend, Kit , comes into play. He has a genuine interest in her, and unlike those who abandoned her when her world feel apart, he and a kind noblewoman who take her in, helps her overcome her challenges and find love along the way.
I enjoyed the relationships Elizabeth had with Lady Walmsley and Kit.
