  • One of the older books by Mary Balogh re-issued

    "Chance Encounter" By Mary Balogh 1985 The book I read was an old Culpeper County Library hardcover copy from Culpeper, VA. the cover is unique. It is hard to review this book without putting spoilers in everywhere because as you read, Mary Balogh throws in information about the past that enlightens the reader. I will try now not to ruin this book for you but give you the basics. Mr. Mainwaring has inherited Ferndale Manor from his uncle and has decided to take up residency and will be bringing friends if all the gossip is to be believed. Elizabeth Rossiter is Cecily Rowe's governess-turned companion. She has been with the family for over six years and she is treated more like a family member than a servant. Everyone in the neighborhood is excited for the newcomer's visit and all the mothers (and daughters) are hoping some single men will be among the guests. This part really sounds like Pride and Prejudice to me! Mr. Rowe visits the Mr. Manwaring and the next day Mr Mainwaring and his friends, Mr & Mrs. Prosser and the Marquess of Hetherington come to call. As the guests were being introduced Elizabeth sitting in the corner in the shadows froze ..OH NO OH NO. ItIs Robert she whispers. This is where I leave off... I really enjoyed this story with it's twist toward the end. If you love Mary Balogh's books as much as I do, you will love this story!! Happy Reading!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A Close Encounter

    A wonderful story. I loved the way they found each other again. I could hardly put it down. I love all of Mary Balogh. To go on a wonderful journey with Marquees, Earls and Dukes read her books.
