LADY OF MILKWEED MANOR
Klassen has written an amazing historical novel. Her style may remind readers of Jane Austen and Lawana Blackwell, and she handles a 19th-century taboo with grace, style and respect.
When Charlotte Lamb gets pregnant and her father disowns her, she has nowhere to go but Milkweed Manor. She's mortified to learn one of the doctors there is a former suitor. Dr. Daniel Taylor, however, promises to keep her identity a secret. And when she learns Daniel's secret, and he asks for her help, the events that follow will change them forever.
