$19.99

Paperback

Here is a great-value collection of three bestselling Regency romances from award-winning writer Julie Klassen. In them, strong young heroines contend with adversity and opportunity, as secrets are hidden and exposed, and men's worth is truly tested.

The Lady of Milkweed Manor
Charlotte Lamb, a fallen vicar's daughter, hopes to secret herself away in London's grim Milkweed Manor. But once there, she is mortified to find herself in the care of a former suitor, a physician whom her father long ago rejected as unsuitable, a man who now hides secrets of his own. Both are determined, with God's help, to protect those they love. But neither could guess the depth of sacrifice that will be required of them.

The Apothecary's Daughter
Lillian Haswell, brilliant daughter of the local apothecary, yearns for more adventure and experience than life in her father's shop and their small village provides. She also longs to know the truth behind her mother's disappearance, which villagers whisper about but her father refuses to discuss. Opportunity comes when a distant aunt offers to educate her as a lady in London. Exposed to fashionable society and romance - as well as clues about her mother - Lilly is torn when she is summoned back to her ailing father's bedside. Women are forbidden to work as apothecaries, so to save the family legacy, Lilly will have to make it appear as if her father is still making all the diagnoses and decisions. But the suspicious eyes of a scholarly physician and a competing apothecary are upon her. As they vie for village prominence, three men also vie for Lilly's heart.

The Silent Governess
Believing herself guilty of a crime, Olivia Keene flees her home, eventually stumbling upon a grand estate where an elaborate celebration is in progress. But all is not as joyous as it seems.
Lord Bradley has just learned a terrible secret, which, if exposed, will change his life forever. When he glimpses a figure on the grounds, he fears a spy or thief has overheard his devastating news. He is stunned to discover the intruder is a scrap of a woman with her throat badly injured. Fearing she will spread his secret, he gives the girl a post and confines her to his estate. As Olivia and Lord Bradley's secrets catch up with them, will their hidden pasts ruin their hope of finding love?

Must have

What a great collection!  These are three of my favorite books all bound together (for the price you'd pay for just one).  LOVE IT!

An entertaining read
4 stars By KG, Dec 22 2016
I enjoyed all three of these Klassen stories. Julie Klassen is one of the best Regency romance authors out there at the moment. If you're a fan of Georgette Heyer, like me, and find that it is increasingly difficult to get a clean Regency with a decent plot line that is also true to the genre, then this book is an answer to your quest. 

Having said that, there are big differences between Heyer and Klassen. Although both authors set their stories in Regency England, Heyer focussed more on the aristocracy whereas Klassen portrays the working middle class.  In terms of mood, Heyer has a light, humorous touch while Klassen, although she writes extremely well, is not particularly witty. Klassen explores some darker themes, a favourite of hers (which can get repetitive) is pregnancy outside marriage. A last major difference is that Heyer did not write about Christians. In contrast, Klassen's main characters are usually either non Christians who find God in the story or flawed Christians who grow in spiritual maturity. She includes a brief explanation of the gospel in her stories without being preachy or out of context of the storyline. 

Economically, this three in one book is a bargain, being only a couple of dollars more than an individual book. I'm pleased with my purchase.
