Another treasure!
5 stars By Ibu Guru, May 02 2017
I have read Lawana's Gresham Chronicles many times and loaned them to friends.  This is another good book from her.  Will probably buy the paperback so it can be shared.  Unlike some other novels, though there are a lot of people in her books, they seem to be introduced well and don't leave you wondering, "Who is this again???" Enjoy!

Definitely Lives Up To Expectations
3 stars By Iola, Jul 22 2016
It's been years since I read a Lawana Blackwell novel, but I loved her Gresham Chronicles and am thrilled to report that Orchard Lane in Stilwell, Devon, has all the charm of Gresham, and the characters are just as engaging.

Lawana Blackwell has never written "typical" romances. She always has a combination of older and younger characters (although, as one character takes great pleasure in pointing out, even twenty-seven-year-old daughter Rosalind is rather too old to attract male attention. Blackwell also shows characters who prefer to live out their Christian faith rather than merely talking about it. Her heroines show grace and kindness despite the hardships they've overcome, and it's great to read. 

If there is an overall theme to A Haven on Orchard Lane, it's marry in haste, repent at leisure, as so many of the marriage relationships are sour and controlling, a result of marrying for the wrong reasons. Or perhaps the theme is marry for character and love, not money and title-as seems to be the common factor in the sour relationships.

I hope this is the beginning of a new series-I'd like to read more about the inhabitants of Stilwell. Recommended for historical romance fans.
