Book Review: The Lost Heir by Candee Fick

The Lost Heir

In Regency England, news travels slowly. Especially in Yorkshire.

Overnight, Kathleen Harris, a foundling raised by a vicar and his wife, becomes the ward of the Earl of Wiltshire and is set on a direct path to a London season. Now miles from home, will her heart outgrow her small Yorkshire village and the love of her childhood friend?

Reuben Cooke, a quality weaver in a region where the woolen industry thrives, supports his widowed mother and hopes to marry soon. However, after the local vicar dies, his dreams of a quiet life with Kathleen at his side quickly unravel as they are ripped apart by societal conventions.

Can true love survive the distance when the road back to happily-ever-after is littered with secrets, a scandal, and a shocking revelation?

If you like faith-based fiction, sweet romance, and satisfying emotional reunions, then you’ll love this Regency era tale from the Within the Castle Gates series by Candee Fick. Get The Lost Heir and be spun into another world.

My Review

The Lost Heir, Book Three in the Within the Castle Gates series, is a sweet Regency romance that you won't want to miss.  It is definitely a stand alone novel.

Reuben and Kathleen both are of humble means, but are full of love for each other and their families.  They are looking forward to their upcoming marriage when circumstances change for both of them.  They remain true to themselves and their love.  Kathleen's intelligence, loyalty, and plain-spokenness influences even more people.  Reuben's hard work and vision come to fruition as his ingenuity helps many in his village and the surrounding area to better themselves.

It was such a blessing to read this story and see how everything worked out for the good - not just for Reuben and Kathleen, but for those close to them, as well.

Readers of Christian fiction and Regency romance will certainly enjoy this book.

I received an e-ARC of this book from the author for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.
