Regency Love: Reflections of a Young Lady by T.L. Clark is a period romance story set in an era where young women come out to the Ton of England and are paraded around to find the best husband that is deemed worthy by their fathers. Where reputations and gossip are rife and women have no say. It is a story where you hope like hope you don’t get a husband who is too old, or to violent towards you. It is a tale of those who can only hope to be fortunate enough to actually find love and be treated like a lady. I am not a lover of period pieces, as I get to caught up in the ways women are treated but T.L did a good job and I found myself drawn to the story and the main character and how her life became. We take a journey back in time where vulnerability is not to be discussed and snobbery and licentious behavior are a given.
Lady Anne is of age to come out to society and find a suitable husband. She is young, naive and beautiful and finds the road to finding the one is filled with troubles, lies and deceit and heartache. Will she be made to marry someone who cares not for her well being and only in duty or will she indeed be lucky enough to find true love?
If you like period pieces then Regency Love is certainly one to grab.
