Excellent! You feel the time of the ending of the Peace of Amiens, and understand the plight of the workhouse children. Because can’t wait for the next book in the series, and hopefully, and Kelly won’t keep me waiting to long

This one is a keeper. Creative, imaginative, and original. The characters are highly likable. Be sure to read THE CHRISTMAS ANGLE by Carla Kelly in "A Country Christmas" first, so that you see how Able and Meridee met and fell in love. Can't wait for the next in the series.

I rejoice when a new Regency-set series debuts from the imagination of Carla Kelly! This one centers around Mr. Chips in the form of the polymath genius with the strangely apt name of Durable. He also can’t remember to keep his hair combed. Never fear, he has a keeper in the form of his new bride, Meridee, an on-the-shelf spinster with no dowry but endless game and love for her troubled, baffling new husband. Add a school full of the boys of St. Brendan’s, who, like their new math and seamanship master, are former ill-used workhouse foundlings. Place them all in a fragile, peaceful respite (during the 1803 Truce of Amiens) during the Napoleonic Wars, and a compelling story ensues. The love scenes are beautifully rendered and bound to keep romance readers enchanted. Carla Kelly is a treasure for all who enjoy great storytelling. Enough mystery and forward motion remain to anticipate the next book in the St. Brendan Series with delight. Highly recommended.
