Paperback
:Marry in haste, repent in leisure-Mrs. Hale is about to find out how painful that repentance can truly be.

Julia Hale ran off to be married in Gretna Green, following romance instead of common sense. But her tale isn't turning into a happily ever after. Her new husband is gone and she doesn't know where-or if he's ever coming back. Julia has no option but to head home to the family she betrayed by eloping and to hope they'll forgive her. Especially now that she might be carrying a baby from her brief marriage.

Carolyn Miller's clean and wholesome Regency romances continue with The Making of Mrs. Hale, following familiar characters as they learn how restoration can occur by finding hope and healing through a deep relationship with God. Full of rich historical details and witty banter, this series continues to draw in fans of Jane Austen, Sarah Ladd, and Julie Klassen."Carolyn Miller gets better and better with each book!"

Genuine Christian Regency romance
5 stars By Iola, Dec 21 2018
The Making of Mrs Hale follows one of the lesser-used romance tropes: a married couple falling in love. Or perhaps they are rediscovering their love, as Julia clearly still has feelings towards Thomas and vice versa.

There is also an exciting suspense thread. Thomas is concerned his ending up in a Spanish prison may not have been an accident. This threatens him, Julia, and their attempts to rebuild their relationship while surrounded by disapproving family members.

I have always been a big Regency romance fan, and Carolyn Miller has established herself as a leading author in the genre. Her research is spot on, yet never gets in the way of the story (I wish this was universal, but I find there are more authors who think they can write authentic Regency than actually can). 

In contrast, Carolyn Miller consistently comes up with realistic yet detailed plots. 

She fills her novels with realistic, complex characters facing issues that are true to the historic period, yet resonate with modern readers. Her novels are also definitely (and perhaps defiantly) Christian, not just "clean". Her characters are forced to evaluate themselves and their relationship with God, which is a refreshing contrast to a lot of the fiction being published by CBA publishers. Overall, I recommend Carolyn Miller and The Making of Miss Hale to anyone looking for genuine Christian Regency fiction.

So much more than a regency romance!
5 stars By Jenny, Dec 05 2018
This book is so much more than a regency romance. I have learned more of history and the regency era through reading it. I have also learned more about the nature of God and people. The issues in this story are realistic and the characters remind me of people I know. I loved seeing even the supporting characters (main characters from previous books) continue to grow and deal with issues as God convicted them and revealed more of himself. I loved that despite misunderstandings, Julia and Thomas didn't over think and over react, or become irrational, something I find frustrating in many other novels I've read. The story flowed and didn't drag at any point. Each of the characters' flaws really made me think - Lady Harkness with her bitter, overbearing ways, Jon with his tendency to judge, Julia with her impulsivity, Serena with her tendency to withdraw and be too reserved, Thomas with unresolved issues from childhood ... each of these flaws were gently dealt with by a loving God in this story. The forgiveness offered by God was beautifully presented by the author and touched me deeply. The moment characters came to a point of life-changing understanding of Him had me moved to tears. Yes, this story is so much more than a romance. I am impatient for Carolyn Miller's next book.

Very real and relevant!
5 stars By Elly Cox, Dec 04 2018
   Ms. Miller has outdone herself with this one! "The Making of Mrs. Hale" reaches new heights of emotional and literary talent!
   Join Thomas and Julia on a roller-coaster ride as the try to navigate the muddied waters of a marriage that began with lies and struggles to continue through misunderstandings and betrayal. Can forgiveness truly reach down SO far?
   I am SO excited about this book! It was everything I could've wanted and then some, everything I've come to expect and appreciate from this amazingly talented modern-day Jane Austen, and more! I can't even begin to put into words how moving and thoroughly enjoyable this book was! 
   Having been through an ordeal myself, I can appreciate the very real struggle to forgive and move past the unforgettable and seemingly unforgivable. This book spoke to me and moved me in a way not many have done. 
   Bravo, Ms. Miller! You've, once again, managed to tackle a tough subject with the authorly skill that only a true master of the craft could!
