Today's review is on The Secret of Pembrooke Park by Julie Klassen.
I loved the story, and I kept trying to guess what the secret was and it was only near the revealing of secret that I started to guess what it was as the protagonist, Abigail, starts to discover fragments of the mystery. The author does a good job of keeping the secret under wraps throughout most of the novel.
There were some sections in the novel that seemed a bit slow in pace, but there was never a dull moment. And everything seemed to occur at the right time, especially the romance that happens in the novel, it isn't fast-paced like most novels, it is slow and gradual.
I really liked Abigail Foster, the protagonist, because she was easy to relate to, especially her having to deal with feeling insecure. I did not like her sister, she was annoying. Most of the other characters were likable.
This book kept me captivated. I finished it in 2 days and it is almost 500 pages long! I highly recommend it to anyone who likes reading Historical fiction, Christian fiction and/ or Jane Austen's works.
I look forward to reading more works by Julie Klassen in the future and I hope she continues to publish books of this caliber during her career.
I am giving this book 5/5 Stars because it was entertaining and intriguing.
P.S. If you have any book recommendations let me know and I will check them out. :)
