    Beautiful cover, wonderful book

    A Hero for Miss Hatherleigh by Carolyn Miller is the first book in the Daughters of Aynsley series. This new series follows the three daughters of Viscount Aynsley. In A Hero for Miss Hatherleigh, the oldest daughter, Caroline Hatherleigh, is sent to Devonshire to visit her grandmother and to get away from a current problem. While she is in Devonshire, she meets a scientist-fossil hunter named Mr. Kirby and his sister who have secrets of their own. This is a delightful book with a very satisfying ending. A Hero for Miss Hatherleigh has an absolutely stunning cover. You feel like you are standing with Miss Hatherleigh on the cliffs of Devonshire. I believe the cover is as fabulous as the book. This book is a great example of regency writing at its best. A Hero for Miss Hatherleigh includes balls, high society, and delightfully interesting characters. But on top of all that, it includes a fossil scientist who is a bit mysterious. I really enjoyed reading and thinking about how a fossil hunting scientist fit into the regency time period. Ms Miller brings the gospel into her stories in such a natural way. I loved watching Caroline's faith grow throughout the story. This is one of my new favorite books from Carolyn Miller. I look forward to the next two books in the series. I highly recommend A Hero for Miss Hatherleigh. I received this book from the publisher and was not required to write a review.

    Elegance

    If Regency Romance is your love then you don’t want to miss this latest book by Carolyn Miller. This is book one in the new Regency Brides Daughters of Ansley series. It will leave you wanting to read Book Two. This book is elegantly written and sucks you into the time period of 1818 England. The research is impeccable and I loved the author’s note at the end about fossil hunting during this time period. Who would have imagined? This book deals with domestic violence during a time when women didn’t really have a voice. It is handle in a sensitive way by the author. I loved getting to know these new characters as well as revisiting some characters from previous books. Faith is woven into the tapestry of the book to make it complete and well rounded. You will feel like you had a history lesson amidst the lives of characters you have grown to love. I received a complimentary copy from the author/publisher. The honest review and opinions are own and were not required.

    Great Regency Fiction

    This new book from author Carolyn Miller affected so many of my emotions. It made me laugh at its humor; it made me "swoon" when Caroline and Gideon were discovering each other romantically; it frustrated me with the gossip that was so rampant and it angered me when Gideon's sister Emma was suffering abuse from her husband, Lord Pratt. But most of all, this book inspired me because it showed how no one is complete until they have accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior. Caroline Hatherleigh seemed to have it all. She was the daughter of Viscount Aynsley and enjoyed the perks of the uppercrust society in 1818 London. It is, however, her visit with her grandmother in south Devonshire that shows Caroline just how shallow her life really is. It is there in that coastal village that she finds true friendship and a chance at everlasting love. Caroline meets Emma Kirby and her brother Gideon and, even though they apparently aren't arisotcrats, they both possess an inner peace and a strong faith that only comes from believing in God and in prayer. Gideon is a research scientist and his passion is searching for fossils but this doesn't detract from his belief that God was responsible for all of Creation. Emma is very fragile and her health is very uncertain but she still trusts that God will see her through. The Kirby's influence and a dangerous cave accident show Caroline that she herself needs a relationship with a Higher Power. Miller's explanation of Caroline's acceptance of Jesus Christ is one of the most moving accounts of conversion that I have ever read! As Caroline wonders if God would even hear her prayers, she hears a voice that can only be God saying "Trust me". As she ponders "Oh, how wretched she was. Oh, how she needed hope. Oh, how she needed forgiveness" (p. 231) Caroline finally tells God "I know I am not good enough, but I believe that Jesus Christ's death paid for my sin, and that You will forgive me. Please help me trust You, help me to understand what you want me to do." (p.232) The mention of smugglers, domestic abuse, and the discovery of a rare ancient fossil aren't topics normally discussed in a Regency novel but Miller has been able to weave them into this wonderful story of a young woman who discovers that one's social standing has nothing to do with one's value as a human being. A Hero for Miss Hatherleigh is the first book in the Regency Brides: Daughters of Aynsley series and I believe that this may be Miller's best book yet! I recommend it to anyone who enjoys Regency romance and Christian fiction. I received a complimentary copy from the author and Kregel Publications but my review is voluntary.

    Loved it!

    Ms. Miller has done it once again! With each novel she releases, I am reminded of why her books are amongst my favorites. With a depth of character, transporting descriptions, and a beautiful story of redemption and relying on God, "A Hero for Miss Hatherleigh" is another fine addition to Author Carolyn Miller's Regency Brides Collection and begs to be read and treasured! This story is chock-full of adventures, mystery, and danger, while still maintaining an incredible adherence to Regency-era historical accuracy. Caroline Hatherleigh's struggle with adhering to or disregarding society's rules wavers back and forth. They were made to protect one's reputation, were they not? But how can this sense of one man's life being more important than another's be right? And how can the concealment of love towards fellow human beings be beneficial for anyone? I am, once more, amazed by Ms. Miller's work and am looking forward to reading her next release, "Underestimating Miss Cecilia". Also (I'm not gonna spoil the ending for you, but) I'm DYING to learn more about Miss Verity and what the author has in store for HER!
