Historical Fiction

The Elusive Miss Ellison by Carolyn Miller

When Lavinia Ellison is re acquainted with  the Seventh Earl of Hawkesbury many years later,  sparks fly.   Hampton Hall’s new owner has the villagers of St. Hampton Heath all aflutter—all except Lavinia Ellison. The reverend’s daughter cares for those who are poor and sick, and the seventh Earl of Hawkesbury definitely does not meet that criteria. His refusal to take his responsibilities seriously, or even darken the door of the church, leave her convinced he is as arrogant and reckless as his brother—his brother who stole the most important person in Lavinia’s world.- Amazon Synopsis.

My review:

What a fun read!  I started this book and couldn’t put it down!  This was a new twist on the Regency era.  I loved Lavinia’s character. She is definitely not going to be one of the society belle’s. She is more interested in helping the poor and sick. It reminded me a little of Pride and Prejudice.  I thought the interactions between character’s were a lot of fun. I liked how Carolyn Miller took her characters and put them in difficult situations which stretched and strengthened them. Even though this book is fiction, I strongly believe the reader can apply the truths in this book to their own life.  Full of wit and laughter, this book will keep you reading until the end.  

I recommend this book to family and friends.

I received this book from the publisher for an honest review.
