Lily of the Manor by Anita Stansfield, Blog Tour & Giveaway



Book Summary:

Broadbent Manor is a home brimming with life and love. With eleven adopted children in her care, young widow Lily Broadbent is in search of the right tutor to instruct and nurture her young charges. So when Frederick Woodstone arrives on her doorstep seeking the position, Lily is quickly impressed by his qualifications—but even more pleased with his gentle manner and immediate rapport with the children that society cast aside. It is clear: Mr. Woodstone is a perfect fit for the family.
From the moment he arrives at the manor, Frederick is enchanted by the lady of the house. Lily is a pillar of strength and compassion, and her striking beauty is undeniable. As the pair works side by side to teach the children, their professional association evolves into something far deeper. But when they stumble upon a young boy in dire circumstances, their relationship is put to the test as Lily makes the impetuous decision to rescue the child—no matter the consequences. What follows is a chain of events that will threaten all that Lily has built for her young family, as the fight for the safety of one small boy becomes a battle between life and death.
 


Book Review:

Stansfield has written a different spin on a regency novel! Mr. Woodstone, a vicar turned tutor, prays that he can find the right job and ends up at Mrs. Broadbents home. He quickly realizes that her home is not the norm and she has adopted eleven children, all of different circumstances. I enjoyed how Stansfield brought prayer and God into the book but not so much that it was over the top. It was a beautiful balance that many authors cannot achieve. It did take awhile to get completely into the story, but Stansfield always delivers a book worth reading! 


Happy Reading!!!
