Arise and prying eyes visit Fairbourne Hall Can she avoid a trap meant to force her from hidingBrimming with romance and danger The Maid of Fairbourne Hall takes readers inside the fascinating belowstairs world of a th century English manor where appearances can be deceiving After hearing a private conversation between her step father and his nephew in which they plotted to make her marry the young man in order to steal her inheritance Margaret Macy decides to flee and wait for her upcoming birthday when she will get that inheritance and will be able to live on her own With the help of her former maid Margaret becomes a housemaid in the home of Nathaniel Upchurch a man she once rejected because she wanted to win his brother’s love Will she be safe in Nathaniel’s home Will Nathaniel expose her if he finds out her true identity After all her refusal is still painful to him to rememberWhat are the right ingredients for a great book In my opinion a book must have an engaging plot endearing characters a little bit of mystery and breathtaking moments I can safely say that you can find all those things in every novel by Julie Klassen She is so talented that I have no difficulty at imagining the scenes she describes Not only are they interesting and beautiful and help readers feel a part of the story but Ms Klassen always adds historical details that are very useful to understand better the characters and their actions and behaviour In “The Maid of Fairbourne Hall” for instance she tells us the life of the servants in the early 1800s through Margaret’s experiences but she is never boring and you never get tired of reading her words Everything is described so well and in a very engrossing way that you have the impression of actually being in the nineteenth century England Or if not you start dreaming of at least visiting those placesHer characters always learn something that will change their lives forever in a positive way In the beginning Margaret is spoiled and indifferent towards her servants’ feelings while by the end of the book she is definitely another person because her experience changes her and lets her see those people through different eyes She learns that servants are as worthy of respect as rich people and even though she should have understood that before I liked the journey she made which led her to change her mind Nathaniel Upchurch is adorable His behaviour towards Margaret and Nora Margaret’s alter ego is commendable There were several moments where I wanted to yell at him because I thought it was impossible for him not to recognise her nevertheless he was a perfect gentleman every time they had some chances to speak to each other I loved their relationship and the way it was depicted I have yet to read all of Julie Klassen’s stories so I am not in the desperate phase when one freaks out because they have to wait a lot before getting her new book but I am already worried because that awful day will arrive very soon I loved every novel that I have read by Ms Klassen and I heartily recommend all of them especially if you love England and Regency era If you have never read her books I think this one may be a great start
