The Companion of Lady Holmeshire
by Debra Brown
Lowly servant Emma Carrington becomes the companion to the widowed Countess of Holmeshire. Emma has eyes for the widow's son, but it is hopeless; besides the class difference, the young Earl of Holmeshire has long been engaged to a London lady. It seems Emma exists for the amusement of polite society where she receives a rude reception. Travel with the Holmeshires from a castle near the Scottish border to a small English village and then into London for the season as puzzling events and mysterious strangers lead to a surprise ending.
"This is an elegant novel. I was quickly absorbed into it, finishing it over the course of a weekend. The characters are well drawn, the settings refined and the plot reminiscent of Jane Austen. The attention to historical detail is remarkable; the writing equal to the complexities of a plot which is as good as any Georgette Heyer novel."
Judith Arnopp, Goodreads Review
"What I liked the most about this book was that it was intelligent. Just when I thought I had the plot and ending sussed, I was proven wrong. There are a lot of surprises along the way before ending with a beautifully tied-up conclusion. I wasn't expecting the plot to develop as it did and I was glad for this. The entire book was a beautiful, unpredictable, well-written and entertaining piece and I look forward to reading more from this talented Author."
