Gentle romance with a strong themeReviewed in the United States on 9 July 2020
Saturday’s Child completes Rosemary Morris’ seven-book series of loosely connected Regency romances. You don’t need to read them in order. They are all “sweet” or “closed door” romances. But although they may be gentle in tone, Ms. Morris uses these novels to explore issues of love across various barriers, be they disability, race or class. This story takes the latter angle, focusing not on a member of the upper class but working-class Annie, who builds up her own business after the loss of her father. Her determination and compassion earns her the attention of Marcus, a member of the ton, but can true love really cross class barriers? With Saturday’s Child, you can escape into the Regency era, root for a resourceful heroine, and admire a hero who is willing to challenge his beliefs for the sake of the woman he loves. Best of all, if this is your cup of tea, you have six more to enjoy!
A great and different RegencyReviewed in the United States on 7 August 2020
Saturday's Child is a different take on the Regency story. The heroine is a determined young woman who works for a living. The child of an army man who followed the drum with him and after Waterloo they return to England where he takes a job that gives her a chance for an education. I found the heroine admirable as she overcomes her problems and teaches the hero about love and determination. A fitting end to the series.
Heart warming historical romanceReviewed in the United States on 10 July 2020
After the Battle of Waterloo Private Johnson and his daughter Annie would have starved if it were not for the kindness of Georgiana Tarrant. Then, too soon, Annie’s beloved Pa is killed, leaving her alone and vulnerable in a world where class distinction and social injustice ruled. She must work twice as hard to keep her father’s modest legacy and in doing so earns the jealousy and spite of people she thought friends. And, what of the aristocratic Marcus Courtney? Her head tells her to beware, her heart wishes otherwise. A heart warming story from an author who knows her history.
A Delightful ReadReviewed in the United States on 25 July 2020
I enjoy Rosemary Morris' novels. Her research is impeccable and her characters beautifully drawn. This is a sweet story, the heroine is a strong, no nonsense Englishwoman, very sure of who she is, but her self belief is shaken when she falls in love with the wrong man. Charming.
