Lynn Morris in her new book, “A Sapphire Season” published by FaithWords brings us into the life of Lady Mirabella Tirel. From the back cover: Lynn Morris, bestselling author of The Baron’s Honourable Daughter, once again sweeps readers into the Regency era with striking period detail. Lady Mirabella Tirel, the beautiful daughter of the Marquess of Camarden, takes a practical approach to love since a dashing captain broke her heart when she was seventeen. Now almost twenty-two, she’s decided to endure one last London season to secure a suitable engagement and begin a simple life in the country. Sir Giles Knyvet is Mirabella’s oldest friend and her most dependable ally, and he is also secretly in love with her. Yet he he believes he has much to overcome to make their relationship possible. Besides being a mere baronet, Giles aims to settle a large family debt before sharing his feelings with her. But when the glittering Season gets underway and engagement rumors swirl, it complicates the circumstances between Giles and Mirabella. Each has discovered the journey their heart longs to take, but in light of this new developments, will they find a way to follow the right path? Lynn Morris is the daughter of a master storyteller so it is only natural that she, too, is a master storyteller as well. Normally I have no idea of what was going on in 1813 so I am very grateful to Ms. Morris to let me know without being boring. Mirabella is working from the position that she has had her heart-broken previously, five years earlier. She is still not over it but back then they had to marry so she is going to try during the Season. What she really needs is not a marriage partner what she needs is for God to heal her heart and get her through her grief and sadness. Mirabella and Giles are living, breathing characters that you just fall in love with. Each of them have their own issues that you want God to deal with so that they can have their own romance. This is a marvelous story that draws you deeply into and makes you want to keep flipping the pages to find out what will happen next. Don’t start this book late at night because it will cost you sleep as you will not want to put it down. This book does not disappoint at all.

A Sapphire Season by Lynn Morris is a very well done Regency novel, and I must say I loved the close connection the daughter had with her parents. Now I'm dying to read her other Regency novel! Mirabella Tirel, the daughter of a marquess, is finally ready to get married so she decides to announce her intention to someone who can spread the word right at the beginning of the season. Immediately, she has three very good prospects. But as she examines them, she begins to wonder if she made a terrible mistake. Giles Knyvet, lifelong friend to Lady Mirabella, keeps his mouth shut when Bella broadcasts her goal of marriage to everyone in polite society. Wishing his situation was different so that he could marry her, he decides to back off while she searches for her life partner. But will he be able to withstand seeing her with someone else? I was incredibly happy to read a novel from this time period where the main character is kind with parents who love her instead of trying to sell her off to the highest bidder. I found it refreshing since the majority of stories are written the other way. Plus, I connected more to the story and it's characters because there wasn't this huge drama. Also, the banter was perfect for that time period. It transported me back in time, but then left me bereft when I was finished. Now I have to watch some Jane Austen movies to make up for it. What a chore... ;-) I definitely recommend this to any Regency fans. I was given this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Lady Mirabella Tirel is the daughter of the Marquess and Marchioness of Camarden. Her close neighbor is Sir Giles Knyvet, the Baronet of Knyveton Hall. Miracle and Giles grew up together and are close friends. The Camarden family is quite wealthy, however, Giles was left with debts when his parents died. Josephine and Lewin Rosborough are the children of the Reverend and Mrs. Rosborough who also live nearly. All four young people have been friends all of their lives. When it comes time for Mirabella to go to London for the season, she insists that Josephine accompany her and Giles does the same with Lewin. Mirabella has decided that it is time she found a husband and decided to make her search in a methodical way. She selects three prospective gentlemen and makes lists of their pros and cons. One by one, she eliminates them. Mirabella is lovely young woman and has many admirers. In addition, the Ladies Patronesses of Almack like her and her schedule is very busy. She attends many events with Josephine, Giles and Lewin. Together, they all make many new friends. The story follows her through her interactions with her friends and the gentlemen who admire her. When Mirabella realizes that she has finally found the man she really loves but feels that he is interested in another woman, her heart is broken and she decides to return home early. This is an in-depth book about each of the Almack's Patronesses, their families and individual quirks. The clothes worn by both the women and men are described in great detail as are the homes and furnishings. We also learn about the foods served at dinner parties and sweet treats found at Gunter’s. The author describes the operas and the outings in the parks. If you are interested in learning more about these things, I think you will truly enjoy this book. The romance story is very sweet and I thoroughly enjoyed all of it. I applaud the author for her hard work and the enormous amount of research she obviously put into writing this book. Don’t miss it!
