August Signet offers A FRESH PERSPECTIVE (4), the deceptively simple love story of a young nobleman and a vicar's daughter, who see each other in a new light after he returns home from his rite-of-passage Continental sojourn. Wrought with exquisite delicacy, this elegantly crafted tale by Elisabeth Fairchild builds to an intense, wonderfully satisfying finale. Favorite storyteller Gayle Buck carries us off to London as a country beauty makes her debut under the aegis of her mother's best friend, who hopes to promote a match between the young lady and her bachelor son. Although the resolution of FREDERICKA'S FOLLY (3) is drawn out unnecessarily, a bang-up start builds up a great deal of reader interest.
