InD'Tale Magazine has given THE FOLLY AT FALCONBRIDGE HALL a 5 Star Review!
Vanessa Ashley is still grieving over the death of her parents
when she arrives at Falconbridge Hall. She has refused the help of a wealthy, titled uncle to accept the position of governess to Blythe, daughter of Lord Julian Falconbridge.
A scientist, Lord Falconbridge travels extensively to the
Amazon and is not home most of the time. Blythe, although a
delightful child, has been melancholy since the death of
her mother and is longing for her father's affections. As Vanessa
unravels the curious aspects of both the disappearance of the
former governess and the perplexing nature of Lord
Falconbridge she discovers her own heart has begun to heal and
is ready to find love.
Intrigue and mystery is introduced early in this story and
soon captures the reader's attention ten-fold! The author
deftly writes the character of Vanessa as strong-willed and
well-educated, making her a very interesting character that
gains one's respect and admiration. Lord Falconbridge is
equally interesting with his scientific knowledge and as the
reader journeys with him to the Amazon, the story is graced with
an exotic aspect. Thereʼs even more intrigue, however, as Lord
Falconbridge also employs a gypsy named Lovel who can
seduce a person with one look.
Suddenly, the reader is in the middle of a full blown whodunnit
with Scotland Yard on the case!
The author deserves high praise for her ability to capture the
reader's attention and engage one in both the mystery and the
romance of this delightful story!
