About the Author
Sherry Lynn Ferguson grew up convinced that she would eventually be an artist. But her studies and work in international relations, history, and English literature drew her in another direction. She has lived overseas and once taught college students in Hong Kong. Writing fiction allows her to combine her varied interests while continuing to discover new ones. She and her husband share their Virginia home and garden with the ghosts of a neighboring Civil War fort.
Lord Sidley's Last Season is her third book for AVALON. Quiet Meg and The Honorable Marksley are also available.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Miss Marian Ware is a talented artist. She is invited to London to study art and be a companion to her cousin Kate. She accepts this offer gladly because she has been engaged to a naval lieutenant for two years and now with Napoleon's abdication, her marriage is fast approaching. Lord Sidley is rumored to be dying. Rather than contradicting the rumors, he uses them to enjoy the season before he must marry and produce an heir. When Marian and Lord Sidley meet there is an attraction but with Marian's engagement and Kate's vow to marry Sidley, it can not be acknowledged.It is a hidden gem of a book. It captures the mood of celebration in London 1814. We are taken into balls; drawing rooms, and a country house party. We know that Marian and Sidley will end up together but the interesting part is how the author makes it happen. This book is well written and thoughtful. The characters are well rounded. If you are looking for a smooth regency with the necessary happy ending, this is the book for you.
