Book three is another winner!!
I enjoyed watching Alice grow into a young lady. The confidence and wit from her childhood follow her into ad society, where she hopes to find a husband. I love how author Kellyn brings up the topic of being unequally yoked, forcing Alice to take a deeper look at herself and examine how deep her fair really is.
What was less appealing were moments where Alice talked down to people, sometimes inner thoughts but demeaning non-the-less. But she learns to curve her tongue and channels her thoughts to more charitable ones as she stops putting people in categories and ‘class’ as other society people did.
She grows inwardly throughout the story by becoming more considerate of others and matures spiritually.
I love the friendship and kindness Peter offers to everyone and his willingness to sacrifice his feelings (sigh, true love) and be a steady friend for Alice and her prince charming. Fx X
I rate this a four-star.
Debutante Alice Knight is ready for her first social season in London. She’s determined to impress society and her mother with an affluent match, at last escaping her past and embracing a future of her own making.
Peter Strauss, an American reporter visiting England, isn’t exactly what Alice had in mind. However, his friendship proves invaluable as Alice faces the challenges of her debut. Almost immediately, she attracts the attention of a well-born gentleman—perfect save for the simple fact that he’s not a Christian.
The life she longs for is finally at her fingertips, but between her own heart and the convictions of her faith, she isn’t sure she ought to grasp it.
