About "A Beauty So Rare (#02 in Belmont Mansion Series)"

The lives of Eleanor Braddock - 30 year-old Southern spinster - and Marcus von Quint - an Austrian prince - intertwine as they pursue their ideals at a Nashville orphanage. Marcus and Eleanor grow closer as the improvement project unfolds, but Eleanor's wealthy aunt Adelicia has other ideas.
- Koorong

She's plain, practical. No stunning Southern beauty. And she never wears pink...

Eleanor Braddock, a spinster at 30, has long since dismissed any hope of marriage. But when a dying soldier whispers his final words, she believes her life can still have meaning and determines to find his widow. But this compassionate deed takes a harsh turn, and Eleanor finds herself dependent upon the richest woman in America and the most despised woman in Nashville--her aunt, Adelicia Acklen, mistress of Belmont Mansion. A clandestine act of kindness leads Eleanor to an unlikely path for her life--building an orphanage, a place that will house widows and orphans from the Civil War. And while Eleanor knows her own heart, she also knows her aunt will never approve.

Marcus von Quint, Archduke of the House of Habsburg and fourth in line to the Austrian throne, arrives in Nashville in search of a life he determines, instead of one determined for him. Collaborating with botanist Luther Burbank, Marcus seeks to combine his own passion for nature with his expertise in architecture. But his plans to incorporate natural beauty into the design of the orphanage run contrary to the wishes of practical, frugal Eleanor, who sees his ideas as costly nonsense.

Yet as the construction project continues, Marcus and Eleanor find common ground--and a love neither of them expected. But Marcus is not the man Adelicia has chosen for Eleanor to marry, and even if he were, someone who knows Marcus's secrets is about to reveal them all.

Write Your Own Review
Well Written
4 stars By Lisa, Jun 26 2017
I am a bit forgiving when it comes to Christian Fiction because the message compensates for what might be lacking in literary quality but I found this book to be well written.  It made me search for more of Tamera Alexander's work!  Although this is the 2nd book in a series (#2 in Belmont Mansion Series) it is very easy to follow as a stand alone novel.  I had not read the first one and enjoyed it all the same.
