    Great Short Story! I enjoyed this short historical romance. Was happy that the Earl and his young daughter found the perfect replacement of the wife and mother they lost and was glad when the Earl discovered the dastardly deed the entitled and spiteful Lady Caroline that he had been courting had tried to pull off. Sorry to say that the narrator’s cadence was too choppy for me to enjoy his narration of this story.

    Initially this is a sad tale, that you wonder where it would lead.
    However, what one person deems as good companionship, may not fit another’s idea of the same thing.
    As one’s idea of a happy family, isn’t always everyone’s image of the same scene.
    Yes this is an interesting story, with a great HEA.

    I didn’t love the narration. It seemed stilted. It’s a good story, you see where it’s going but it has a happily ever after to look forward to. The choice to have the characters always refer to each other as Lord Trenton or Lady Leah made it harder to like the characters. What father (Lord or not) never calls his daughter Leah, only Lady Leah? It added to the stilted nature of the reading. It’s an enjoyable novella that most will enjoy.
