About the Book


Like many of Ms. Klassen’s books, this is an emotional roller coaster. The poor heroine makes one poor choice and then goes through much trauma and turmoil on her journey to healing. For most of the book, I was never quite sure if she was going to get the happy ending that I yearned for and the author certainly took her time meandering through years of the character’s life to get there. But that kind of timeline is what many readers appreciate, and she expertly covers those years without dragging out the story with needless scenes and details, which I appreciate and keeps me returning to her even though Ms. Klassen’s books are longer than my usual preference. In the end, I not only got a satisfying ending, but I also got an added bonus that I didn’t dare hope for.


As Charlotte drew closer to the looming grey edifice that was to become her temporary home, she could not help but notice the secretive shuttered windows. Then she noticed the milkweeds…

Even a proper vicar’s daughter can make a mistake…and now Charlotte Lamb must pay a high price for her fall. To avoid the prying eyes of all who know her, she hides herself away in London’s forbidding “Milkweed Manor,” a place of mystery and lore, of old secrets and new birth.

But once there, she comes face-to-face with a suitor from her past—a man who now hides secrets of his own. Both are determined, with God’s help, to protect those they love. But neither can imagine the depth of sacrifice that will be required.

Sprinkled with fascinating details about the lives of women in Regency England, Lady of Milkweed Manor is a moving romantic drama about the redemption of past failings and the beauty of sacrificial love.
