RITA Award finalist and Christy Award winner Julie Klassen delivers historical romances brimming with the eloquence and intensity of Jane Austen. In an abandoned gatehouse on an old estate, Mariah Aubrey lives in seclusion. She supports herself by writing novels in secret—at a time when such writing is considered improper and unladylike. Soon the wealthy and ambitious Captain Bryant leases the estate and is intrigued by the beautiful girl in the gatehouse. But will he risk his plans—and his heart—for a woman shadowed by scandal?

Listener Opinions

    " I love her books. Very easy reads for those times when you don't want your brain to work any harder than it already does. Nice story to relax to. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Gayle | 2/7/2014

    " I enjoyed this book. Very Jane Austen-ish. Good writing and story. Just enough mystery and a little romance to keep it interesting. "

    " This book was a nice, pleasant historical fiction read. It was a clean and wholesome story that kept me interested through the end. In it, Mariah is sent away by her father for some undisclosed (until the end) but easily guessed at sin that resulted in her being disowned, shamed by her family, and compromised. She flees to a distant aunt's house with her maid and lives in the gatehouse. From there she becomes a woman author, fights off unwanted advances from the owner of the house, becomes involved in a poorhouse across the road, and ultimately falls in love with another tenant of the property (who fights his own demons and preconceptions throughout the book). This was a nice enjoyable read even if it was a bit predictable and got a little too preachy for me at the end. Still, I would definitely pick up another book by Julie Klassen when I'm looking for something with a historical bent that isn't smutty and will end happily ever after! "

    " Loved, loved, loved this book!! I love this period of time and the message that God loves all of his children and is willing to forgive them as long as they repent and come unto him. "
