Publisher's Summary

A traditional regency romance, drawing room rather than bedroom.

Amy is a shy, timid soul, browbeaten by her domineering father until she's terrified to do or say anything without his approval. When he dies suddenly, his will leaves large dowries for his six daughters, but only if they marry in the proper order, the eldest first. Amy must now find herself a husband, and soon, so her younger sisters can marry in their turn. There are several possible suitors, but will any of them come up to scratch? And how will Amy choose without her father to guide her?

Mr. Ambleside has been waiting for Amy for years, his suit rejected by her father. Now he has his opportunity, and he's determined to win her. But first he has to see off his rivals, and if he manages that, he has to overcome her reluctance to defy her father's wishes. But he's a very tenacious man...

Growing into your own person

Amy's story was a very good story, where we were allowed to hear and read how Amy grew into her own person, and found her heart in the best man of her acquaintance.

And what a background story of the father, a secret past... which was only hinted at.
I liked how we get to know all the sisters, but was shocked at how cold the mother was to the girls and their futures.
Can't wait to read and hear more!

Amusing

It was a good thing the father died off stage before the book began; the aftermath of his bullying ways was bad enough. His domineering of our heroine, Amy, rendered her much too timid and silly. Fortunately, the hero understood her, loved her, and promised her a much happier life. Of course, there were obstacles to overcome but they were mostly the result of immaturity and misunderstanding. The book is well written and perfectly narrated.

Very highly recommended

This story was a total surprise to me and what a good one it was.
I will admit that I've been eyeing this series for a while now but always found 'something better' to read or listen to. What an utter mistake that was!
This book is really good. It is well written, has every emotion under the sun in it as well as good, clean romance and shows the dominance of the father even after his death and the effects this has. The utter relief most of the female family members feels at his death is very evident.
I also enjoyed the narration by Joanna Stephens. It is well read and doesn't detract from the story itself.
I am extremely happy to recommend this story whether its the book, ebook or audiobook version.
I won a free copy of the audiobook version in a competition and was lucky in more ways than one. The above is my honest and unbiased review. Enjoy!
