In the style of Jane Austen, debut author Julie Klassen delivers a compelling Regency Era novel.

As Charlotte drew closer to the looming grey edifice that was to become her temporary home, she could not help but notice the secretive shuttered windows. Then she noticed the milkweeds…

Even a proper vicar’s daughter can make a mistake—and now Charlotte Lamb must pay a high price for her fall. To avoid the prying eyes of all who know her, she hides herself away in London’s forbidding “Milkweed Manor,” a place of mystery and lore, of old secrets and new birth.

But once there, she comes face to face with a suitor from her past—a man who now hides secrets of his own. Both are determined, with God’s help, to protect those they love. But neither can imagine the depth of sacrifice that will be required.

Sprinkled with fascinating details about the lives of women in Regency England, Lady of Milkweed Manor is a moving, romantic drama about the redemption of past failings and the beauty of sacrificial love.

    " I've loved every Julie Klassen book I had read, so when I saw this one discounted on Amazon, I went ahead and purchased it. Without really reading closely what it was about. If I had, I probably would have skipped this one, just personal preference. Women who were wet nurses is not a subject that is especially interesting to me, personally. The rest of the book, I really enjoyed, but that portion was not my cup of tea. Still, it was good and I will continue to read more by this author :) "

    " I always learn so much about past medical history when I ready books by Julie Klassen - this time Julie focused on the birthing practices in use during the early part of the century in London. It was a good story plot that keeps you guessing until the end. And you learn a lot along the way. Who would have guessed that they really did use milking goats to feed babies with siphillious? I really wasn't very aware of how unmarried mothers dealt with pregnancies, either. This book was quite an eye opener. Worth a read! "

    " A sweet story--I really didn't know what choice she would make in the end! "
