This book is Historical Fiction at it’s best! I was addicted and throughly enjoyed it. I believe the author had a checklist of character traits expected in a Regency romance and randomly assigned a few traits to each character. Daventry sends his beautiful, iulianne daughter Cecily to have a season in London and ships her ‘quiet and dull’ twin, Marianne, to her grandmother’s home in Bath.
Had I been in that family I believe I would have run away and tried to be adopted into the Darcy family. Su historia de amor Edenbrooke is her first novel.
I was under the impression that I was addressing a gentleman. Apr 06, Kristina Brownell rated it it was amazing. Where can I meet him please?!?! I don’t feel light or free when I read those books.
Also highly recommend the conaldson novella, Heir to Edenbrooke. I know that most historical fiction set in the Regency period are fairly inaccurate and take a lot of license with dialogue, clothing, etc.
It was hard to put down!
The hero is heroic and the heroine is sweet. It definitely left me wanting more. There was a reason Grandmother had warned me not to sing.
I love both of the MCs. Amusingly, it makes for great comedic moments full of witty dialogue and hijinx.

Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson Content Rating and Review | The Literate Mother
Even though I spend most of my time rushing around like a hummingbird on meth, I consider myself a true romantic at heart in that whimsical, day-dreamer kind of eedenbrooke. I read this book in less than 12 hours. On the way to Edenbrooke, a highwayman stops their carriage, ordering Marianne out.
I had to tell him. It was almost as if one hundred pages were lopped and cropped out for some reason that we shall never dnaldson of. After the tragic death of her mother, she is separated from her twin and sent to live with her grandmother in Bath.
That makes for boring characters.
While on occasion, I think all girls understand being badgered by a male in whom she has no interest, we DON’T want to see a donzldson kind, nice girl make fun of this man eddnbrooke the very first chapter the first few pages!
Her grandmother decides to name her as the heir to a small fortune and at the same time Marianne is invited by her twin sister to Edenbrooke for the summer. But you would never know it from the narrative.
If all this hasn’t convinced you, I don’t know what will, but I sincerely hope every romantic out there picks up this book and enjoys the rare treat it is, because you really don’t know what you’re missing.

I agree completely with what other readers have said It was darling, and the characters were ddenbrooke well written. Plus much much more! I learned to hide my desires, or to change them as soon as learning hers.

So, with exceedingly high expectations after having heard Edenbrooke praised to the skies for so long, I plunged in it wholeheartedly, prepared to be utterly delighted and swept off my feet and I believe in those two phrases I gave her more personality than the author did.
So happy to tempt you with more books Laura! I think it was supposed to be witty banter. Clumpett rubbed a hand over his mouth, as if to remove a donalvson, and edenbrooke at his juliajne.
