Publisher's Summary

Seeking Fortune is an emotionally gripping regency inspirational romance set in England.

Losing his wife and daughter to influenza shook James Colchester's faith in God. As another epidemic threatens, he's torn between what's best for his fragile son: fleeing to his Welsh homeland, or staying put. In a moment of weakness, the black-haired, green-eyed Gypsy's delicate touch on his palm quells his fears, and her beauty ignites a warmth he hasn't felt in years.

Desperate to return to her people, Valentina Rupa goes against every lesson her mother taught her to soothe the Englishman into a false sense of security. But as James's quiet faith sparks a hunger to know it for herself, she realizes she's made an unforgivable mistake. One that could rob James of his most precious gift - and destroy their chance for lifelong love.

A story about love, redemption and faith.

This is a good story about love, redemption and faith. It also shows how the people were prejudiced against the Gypsy people and how the influenza epidemic affected everyone. Valentina just lost her mother, her sister is sick and they have to get help. When they are confronted by some locals, Valentina's sister is hurt and the local gentry takes them in and helps them. Valentina is untrusting of Englishmen and so she doesn't disclose everything that James needs to know. As Valentina gets to know James, she realizes that she must tell him the truth, but how can she do that after waiting so long. James has been nothing but kind and is teaching Valentina about faith and love. Will he ever forgive her when he finds out the truth?

Enjoyed

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Learning of the Romany culture was fascinating. The research that went into this book had to be incredible. The love story between Valentina and James was heart wrenching and uplifting. Both had tortuous pasts and had faced horrible situations but came together through perseverance and God's grace. Looking forward to the next book in this series.

Trust God or Readings?

This story was exceptional and I truly enjoyed listening to the narrator, she made it very interesting and real.

I’ve enjoyed this book as well as the other two books in this series. I cried when Mr. Colchester sent her away. I was so angry with him for not accepting her apology. Men can be so stubborn.

I encourage you to please either read or listen to this book as well as the others in this series. I know you will love them too. I highly recommend this book. Enjoy!

The Englishman and the Gypsy

A lovely tale... an Englishman and a Gypsy are brought together quite accidentally. Even though they come from two “different worlds”, they are drawn to each other. Can they overcome their differences and find happiness?

Josie Riviera has written an emotional story and Allyson Voller has delivered it flawlessly!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Beautiful Story

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. I loved the way it ended. The way that both of the sisters were successful. I loved the way she loved his son. There were many ways that they took to get to their HEA but it happened. A gypsy and an Englishman. Both of them imperfect yet so in need of each other. The realization that love does conquer all. The elders were glad to see them and Luca who was in charge of the gypsy caravan has always been her childhood friend but James sees him as a rival. Happy story ending. God's timing is always right.
