Blackmoore is a heartwarming classic that I enjoyed immensely. I laughed and cried as Kate made the transition from girlhood into womanhood, and adored the romance and love story. This book is everything I would expect from a period novel and more. I especially appreciate the true nature of love as described in the characters relationship. It is refreshing when most love stories follow a given pattern and are utterly unreal and selfish. These characters reminded me of my relationship and courtship with my spouse and of the love that we share. This is the second book that Julianne Donaldson has written that I have read, and I am already a devoted follower. I am a romantic at heart, and hopefully will get to read her books for many years to come.
Kate Worthington knows she can never have her heart’s desire and so believes she will never marry. But Kate’s meddlesome mother has other plans. Kate journeys to the stately manor of Blackmoore on the cliffs above the seashore, where she must face the truth and the man that has kept her heart captive.
Set in northern England, Blackmoore is a Regency romance that tells the story of a young woman struggling to learn to follow her heart. With hints of Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters, Blackmoore is a page-turning tale of romance, intrigue and devotion.
About Julianne Donaldson
Julianne Donaldson grew up as the daughter of a U.S. Air Force fighter pilot. She learned how to ski in the Italian Alps, visited East Berlin before the wall came down, and spent three years living next to a 500-year-old castle. After earning a degree in English, she turned her attention to writing about distant times and places. She lives in Utah with her husband and four children.
Please buy, read and discover for yourself the true nature of romance and love once again. If you are a fan of Austen or Bronte, this is the perfect complement to their writings, and a great addition to the books you will read again and again.

I love period novels and this sounds like something right up my alley!
This sounds like a very romantic read – I’ll see if my library has it in e-book.
