Dawn's Untrodden Green | Book Review + Giveaway

JustRead Publicity Tours


“Highly entertaining, refreshing, and witty.... [A] beautifully written, delightful, and faith-filled romance of two endearing hearts.”
–Grace Hitchcock, award-winning author of My Dear Miss Dupré

Not much happens in Theodosia Stapleton’s tiny Northumberland village. Certainly not to her. She has resigned herself to spinsterhood, caring for her ailing mother in the home of her grandfather, known to the locals as “General Contrary.” When her dear friend dies and leaves behind a daughter, it’s simple enough to take the child into her own quiet world. That is, until her ward’s famous uncle unexpectedly arrives and throws Theo’s tidy orbit completely off-kilter.

Fame was the last thing Daniel Balfour sought when he fought in the Peninsular War. But his brave exploits caught the attention of the King, and now the honors he was given hound him everywhere... even on his rushed trip to rescue his orphaned niece.

Theo’s quick wit and warm smile reassure him that Rebecca is in good hands, and he finds himself free to swiftly return to London and his responsibilities. But those caring hands are beginning to look like they could also safely hold his heart, and he’s tempted to linger. Unfortunately, marriage is simply not in the cards; the army is spouse enough for him.

Then an accident and a scandal lead both Theo and Daniel to discover that their best-laid plans may not have been what God designed for them after all.

What a delight!

Carolyn Miller's latest Regency Wallflower book, Dawn's Untrodden Green, brings together spinster Theodosia Stapleton and Captain Daniel Balfour with an orphaned child. Both Theo and Daniel thought they knew what the future held for them, but as they come to realize, plans can change.

I enjoyed my time with Dawn's Untrodden Green and the characters within. Miller writes in a way that brings them and their circumstances to life with ease, and overall, their story is lighthearted and fun, while still offering challenging and heartfelt moments. For readers that enjoy regency romance, this Regency Wallflower book is definitely worth the read.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
