Adoring Abigail by Chalon Linton, Blog Tour & Giveaway!!!

Book Summary:

Captain Robert Wilkins has never aspired to grandeur. So when the returned war hero unexpectedly inherits the vast estate of Cattersley from his great-aunt, he feels woefully inadequate in his new role. Out of place in his lavish surroundings, his first glimmer of hope comes when he happens upon a lovely trespasser in his gardens.

Words have never come easily for Abigail Rutherford, and she prefers the solitude of exploring the gardens at the neighboring country estate to engaging in uncomfortable conversation. But when she unexpectedly encounters Captain Robert Wilkins in her place of solace, she is surprised at the immediate ease she feels in his presence. Soon her brightest moments are those spent with the captain. But even as their friendship grows into something more, outside forces have other plans for the two. Mr. Mead, the handsome vicar, has also taken a liking to the quiet and timid Abigail—and he will stop at nothing to ensure she becomes his wife.

My Review:

This is a story that needed to be told and just struck a chord with me. Linton made me feel real emotions for fictional characters created so well, I forgot they were not real people! I felt a connection to Abigail, forced into circumstances beyond her control and being criticized and shunned at every turn. Her speech impediment caused people to treat her as less than enough, and it was heartbreaking. Her positivity under the circumstances leapt off the pages and I was rooting for her the entire time. 
The gardens and grounds of Cattersly were described so well I cannot leave them out. I could picture it all in my mind. I shouldn’t say this, but I hated the vicar! He was evil and so full of hypocrisy, I wanted to punch him myself! Robert was the true gentleman and I loved his goodness and purity of heart. This is the regency novel of 2020 people, so get out there and grab your copy! Linton has hit a home run!

Happy Reading!!!
