Marry in haste, repent in leisure—Mrs. Hale is about to find out how painful that repentance can truly be.
Julia Hale ran off to be married in Gretna Green, following romance instead of common sense. But her tale isn’t turning into a happily ever after. Her new husband is gone and she doesn’t know where—or if he’s ever coming back. Julia has no option but to head home to the family she betrayed by eloping and to hope they’ll forgive her. Especially now that she might be carrying a baby from her brief marriage.
Carolyn Miller’s clean and wholesome Regency romances continue with The Making of Mrs. Hale, following familiar characters as they learn how restoration can occur by finding hope and healing through a deep relationship with God. Full of rich historical details and witty banter, this series continues to draw in fans of Jane Austen, Sarah Ladd, and Julie Klassen.
I think I say this with every book I have read by Carolyn Miller (and I’ve read them all) but she keeps getting better and better.
The tension and drama and lies this book begins with are sure to capture the reader and propel them forward to keep reading more.
The reader knows Julia is hiding something from the beginning but we don’t get the full story for quite some time.
The reader knows what Thomas will have to hide when he returns to his bride but we can’t help but wonder how long that will last and what will happen when Julia finds out.
If you are a regency romance lover I have no doubt you will adore this book.
