This was maiv much fun because it’s like a secret you share with them, as secret farbourne from Margaret. Then she smiled at him, her eyes brimming with tears. Should a 13 year old girl read this?

Now she must keep up pretences, evade her stepfather, succeed at her new and lowly occupation as well as try very hard not to fall for one – or both – of the brothers yet again. The character development was great. In contrast, Nathaniel proves to have the character of a true gentlemen. The love story is great, complete fwirbourne some wonderful kissing scenes! Her characters always learn something that will change their lives forever, in a positive way. But on the other hand, she also appears to be inconsiderate, self-centered, foolish, and haughty to others.

Perfectly written, with enthralling sprinkles of my favourite kind of Austen-y writing and jovial lines, this book is definitely up to scratch with Klassen’s classic writing.

Klassen doesn’t make it easy on her, but doesn’t make it unrealistically hard, either. To ask other readers questions about The Maid of Fairbourne Hallplease sign up.

I don’t know when that exactly happened, but in the end I was rather fond of Nathaniel and Helen, wishing them every happiness. I loved reading as Margaret Macy’s character developed and changed as she became the person she was in the end, as well as the others who became better and better as the story unfolded. A few of the male characters have less than honorable designs toward women, especially the servant girls, but details are never given.

Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews. There is so much just in that first sentence! The fairboirne about Margaret and her masquerade as a servant was such a fun adventure to follow, and the mysterious activities of Lewis Upchurch and what he was up to at night definitely kept me guessing. After all, her refusal is still painful to him to remember And there is something I need to ask you.


I also thoroughly enjoyed the well-written story and characterizations. A very right and proper regency indeed. No trivia or quizzes yet. He shows up at Fairbourne Hall in search of Margaret and later on he tries to flush Margaret out by a carefully planned ruse.

But she soon discovers that the life of a servant is a hard one, with little respect and poor pay. The main female character was faced with a very serious and dangerous situation which she met head on.

I have collected all of Julie Klassen’s books, and I have to say, that this is one of the best. And she comes to understand that Joan’s situation in a difficult household is directly the result of her actions. I am so glad that I did not and continued reading on.
