The Roses of Feldstone is a sweet novel set in Victorian England. Rose Davenport has admired William for years. As the second son William may have been attainable as a husband, but when his older brother marries for love all thoughts of marriage between Rose and William are ended.
I enjoyed this book, the settings were beautiful and the characters well developed. I gave it 4 stars because the plot was too predictable. If you are looking for a light read, grab a cup of tea and a plate of biscuits and settle in for a pleasant afternoon or two.
I was given this book by NetGalley.com with no expectations. All thoughts are my own.
Standing before Feldstone Manor, site of so many happy memories, Rose Davenport feels nothing but dread. Her family’s annual visit to the stately home was once brightened by her friendship with the earl’s youngest son, William, but everything changed the day his elder brother was disinherited and William became heir to his father’s earldom. From that moment, William made it clear he has no interest in continuing an acquaintance with Rose. Heartbroken, she sets out to prove that she will simply not be ignored—or outdone—by the arrogant future lord of the manor. When his elder brother marries for love, William’s entire life changes in an instant. He does not have the same option to marry whom he chooses, and he must let go of the feelings he has harbored for his dear friend, Rose. He steels himself against her annual visits, determined to keep his feelings for her a secret. But when he makes the hasty promise to marry within six months, he never dreams that his actions will lead Rose to impulsively undertake the same challenge.
