Kit and Elizabeth by Karen Tuft, New Release Book Review
Lady Elizabeth Spaulding’s world has fallen apart. Despite living her entire life to please her demanding parents, the Duke and Duchess of Marwood, she has little to show for it. After Elizabeth’s second failed betrothal, her father’s debts and appalling acts of retaliation force him to flee the country, consigning Elizabeth and her bitter mother to a life of poverty and exile. But Elizabeth’s fortunes change one day when an elderly acquaintance makes her an offer she can’t refuse.
Lady Walmsley, widowed and childless, is in need of a lady’s companion—and who better than the lovely Lady Elizabeth? Determined to rescue Elizabeth from her dreary life in the country, Lady Walmsley secures the help of Kit, the dashing Earl of Cantwell, in her quest. But the young woman they find is a ghost of the charming girl they once knew. Taken in by Lady Walmsley, and with Kit’s enthusiastic encouragement, Elizabeth finds herself pushed further and further from her empty solitude as she discovers the joy of truly living. Now, for the first time in her life, she must decide for herself who she is and if she deserves to be loved.
Man, I really cannot say enough about this book. It certainly isn't a run-of-the-mill regency. Hardship like you could never imagine befalls Lady Elizabeth and she endures things no one should ever have to. Watching the dynamic between Kit and Elizabeth was a wonder to see unfold and I could not get enough of their interactions. Kit challenged Elizabeth to be daring, bold, and step outside of her comfort zone! The metamorphosis she experiences is one you get to see for yourself as you step inside of her world. From the major character to the minor ones, I loved every one of them! This is definitely a regency novel you do not want to miss!
