If you are a fan of the Regency era (think Jane Austen), these books will be sure to delight! I loved all three of the books in the series and the companion novella. Vetsch has written stories that are engaging and make you really care about the characters. She touches on some subjects that aren't often dealt with in Christian fiction and throws in a little bit of mystery with the romance to make for a very enjoyable read.
Readers who have enjoyed Klassen's Tales from Ivy Hill series will enjoy visiting with these friends again. This novella focuses on Sir Timothy's younger brother Richard and was a great Christmas read.
I have listened to the first two books in this series, and enjoyed them both a great deal. I was a little more than disappointed when I realized that the final book in the series is not yet available as an audiobook on Hoopla ... I hope it becomes available soon as I'd like to finish out the series.
Although these books are part of a series, they really are stand-alone novels that can be read individually. Each book takes place in a different National Park and each book has totally different characters.
If you're looking for a little something to help put you in the Christmas spirit, consider checking out one of these title!
