This 324 page novel was a very quick read for me. The story was very engaging and the characters were such that I could feel their emotions. The time period was very realistic. The proprieties for the women of the time period are hard to comprehend though. I would probably be in trouble all the time!
If you like a read full of deceit, murder, poaching and sweet romance you've got to read this. One particular character was seemingly nice at the beginning but progressively turned bad. Imagine a "close" family member turning on you and you feared them so much that you had to find a way to escape their threats. Imagine being used to luxury and pampering and opulence and having to run and head to an unknown situation and learn to make your own way. Of having to work for a living for the first time in your life and share living quarters with three other women. Annabelle was faced with this and more. It was a big change from London but one she adjusted to and learned so much. I highly recommend A Stranger at Fellsworth and author Sarah E Ladd
I received a copy of this novel from the publisher through the Fiction Guild and was not required to write a review.
