This is the first book of a trilogy surrounding The Ladies Fashi
This is the first book of a trilogy surrounding The Ladies Fashionable Cabinet, a lady's magazine. Eleanor Tennant's niece, Belinda, for whom she has responsibility, is being pursued by an "unsuitable" suitor, and Belinda is encouraged by the Cabinet's advice columnist, the Busybody, to "follow her heart." When Eleanor tracks down the Busybody, she finds Simon Westover and treats him to a scathing tongue-lashing. However, Belinda has already eloped with her suitor, and Eleanor insists that Simon help her find the couple and bring them back.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Ms. Hern does not waste words. She barely has the scene set before she plunges headlong into the story. The characters are well-formed and the dialogue intelligent. The emotions reach out and touch you, and the romance is uplifting. I would definitely recommend "Once a Dreamer."
