Publisher's Summary

Downton Abbey fans... if you'd like another series set in the manor houses of England, try the Manor House Series. The first book is Love of the Summerfields: 1880 England: the lives and loves of manor and village intertwine. Earl and shopkeeper, countess and clerk - all will be stunned and transformed by a secret that begs to be revealed.

When the Weston family returns to Summerfield Manor at the close of the London social season, both village and manor relax into their normal existence. But for four women, turmoil awaits. Each must battle the restrictions of her position as her faith and character are tested. Adelaide Weston: the feisty and domineering dowager countess, is thrust out of her carefully structured life of duty by the reappearance of her first love. Ruth Weston: the manor's reclusive, guilt-ridden countess, struggles to emerge from self-imposed exile to embrace her marriage, her family, and the duties of her position. Ruth's loyal lady's maid, Molly Wallace, juggles the demands of her job, the needs of her own tumultuous family, and a secret romance. And Lila Hayward, a shopkeeper's daughter, finds herself in love with a viscount's son who's engaged to Ruth's spoiled daughter. Lila is sorely tested when she is obliged to act as liaison between the two, putting her in constant contact with the man she loves but can never hope to win. None of these women expect a decades-old secret to unsettle the balance of her life - and the lives of everyone in Summerfield. Each will have a choice to make between her own happiness and a truth that will turn their carefully-ordered world upside down.

Great story ... not so great vocals

Nancy Moser has written a delightful story with countless twists and turns. However I almost gave up listening to it several times because of the sharp tones of the narrator. I was glad I stuck with it, but wish she would choose a reader with a more pleasant voice.

Storyline predictable; Narration terrible.

Narration was painful to listen to. Fake English accents botched the whole book. Storyline was simplistic and predictable.
