Regency Love: Reflections of a Young Lady By TL Clark. Once again I found myself drawn into a genre I’m not particularly interested in. But I was definitely pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this story. The author does a wonderful job of writing a story that paints a very clear picture in your mind while you read. The attention to even the smallest details was great. Each character brings something different to the overall story being told. It’s well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed. The author truly writes the emotions that’s intended to be felt, I was all over the place but in a good way. I’m excited to see where the author takes readers next. I’m giving this story a four star review and recommend it.
Regency Love: Reflections of a Young Lady by TL Clark is a four star novel. In Regency, England, we learn a lot about the era that Lady Anne is living in and how women are treated. She is about to have her coming out and needs to find a husband. After having all of her training that she needs, her mission is to find a husband. Only problem is that there aren’t many choices. With her standing, she has to make sure her suitors are allowable for her father. But when her heart falls for someone below her standing, will she be able to allow her head to follow or will she break her heart for her father and his cares about standing in society?
Regency Love: Reflections of a Young Lady by TL Clark was an intriguing read that hooks you from the start, and keeps you until the last page is flipped.
As a fan of historical fiction, I was excited to read this book. Right out of the gate I was pulled in, and was transported back in time to a place of lace, ball gowns, courting and titles. It was well researched, authentic, and the detail not only paints a realistic pictured, it brings you into the story itself. The world building was top shel, and the characters were well written, well rounded complex and compelling. My only complaint, is that this book is a bit on the longer side, over 400 pages. I found there was some filler along the way, I first notice it at the start with a letter to the MC’s younger sister. I get what was trying to be done, as I am a fan of Jane Austen, but I feel like that letter didn’t add to the plot, and was a bit dry. But other than that, I was impressed with this read, and I will be checking out more from this author.
Overall this book is worth your time and energy. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that weather if you like this genres or not, this book will take you back to a time long gone, and will give you that inside look into the minds of the women who at the time, did not have choices of their own.

Regency Love: Reflections of a Young Lady
by TL Clark
This author does an excellent job on taking you back into history. I have read other books by this author and have enjoyed everything I have read, I will admit that even knowing I like this author I was a little unsure about this story only because I don’t normally read books from this era. I am ecstatic that I did decide to read it because it took me to a place of wonderful balls, parties, clothing, and then some not so flattering things from that time. Reading about Lady Anne and what she experiences during her “coming out ” season was entertaining, eye opening and made me really like her. She is naive about men and so choosing a would be husband is very difficult, it’s hard to know who has good intentions and who doesn’t. Lady Anne’s father makes things even more difficult for her but ultimately he makes the decision since that’s how it’s done back then. There are some wonderful characters in this story that I grew fond of. This story was so well written that I felt like I was there in it. I truly enjoyed this read with its happy times and sad ones, along with witty banter. I highly recommend this book.
Regency Love: Reflections of a Young Lady was a great 5 star read.
Lady Anne is at the age for her coming out and looking for a husband. She has been trained by her mother on how a young lady should act. She has many suitors, some are way older and definitely not anyone she prays will ask for her hand. Her dream is to find someone she can love. When she finally meets the one, he turns out to be the most perfect man and exactly what she was praying for. Can they have a HEA?
Overall I really enjoyed this read. It was great reading a historical romance, it’s been awhile for me. There was so much going on, not with just Lady Anne but her friends and family as well. It was interesting reading how women were to be seen not heard. I have to say I also had a LOL moment on her wedding night, it was great. I really enjoyed the ending and I look forward to reading more from this series.

Even with the social standards that were the norm at that time, I appreciated the personality we could still see in our heroine. Loved every single page and am looking forward to reading it again very soon!
Regency Love: Reflections of a Young Lady by TL Clark
Regency Love: Reflections of a Young Lady by TL Clark was a compelling and insightful read. I loved following Lady Anne in this novel and greatly enjoyed reading her letters to her younger sister. It was fascinating reading what life was like for her during that time period and being privy to her thoughts that were not able to be shared at the time. She was a beautiful person and it was fascinating reading her opinion on the process of finding a husband compared to swine at the beginning. It was something I found hilarious but also true. This was such an excellent read and the story itself was easy to follow. This novel is definitely worth its 5-stars and I highly recommend it!
Regency Love: Reflections of a Young Lady by TL Clark is a new type of historical romance for me. I would give this book a four out of five stars. I really loved the setting and point of view. I love reading a story where the thoughts are expressed and Lady Anne’s realistic expectations kept me grounded. I really struggled to put the book down, I definitely had those moments where I had to put my kindle down and breath and they jump back.
I’m not usually a huge fan of Regency Romance, yet I enjoyed the narrative in this story. There are several threads all interwoven through the story and they unravel at a great pace.
The character development, the story line, the pace of the story was all terrific.
