Good Morning, Glory by Shaunna Sanders

Good Morning, Glory

Kit Quinn plans to grow old and singularly boring as a housekeeper on Mr. West's estate. It doesn't sound like much fun, but at least it's respectable. And she would have stuck to that plan, if Mr. West hadn't turned out to be wonderful -- and unattainable.

His plans to marry someone wealthy can't possibly include her, so now that he's pushing the boundaries of their professional and personal relationship, Kit doesn't know whether to run away and keep her self-respect or stay and hope for some fleeting happiness. She's read enough classic literature to know what last century's heroines would do, but in 1926, a girl should be able to keep her man and her dignity.

My Thoughts:
I have always been a Jane Austin fan, so when I picked this book up and it had that feel, I was excited. I really loved the sweet romance in the book. And right way was excited about Mr. West! I enjoyed that this book took place around the Industrial Revolution, so the characters had automobiles, flashlights, and the like. It was fun. I loved Kit, who was well educated and feisty in wit. There was a lot of good thought provoking debates in this book, and my hat is off to the author for coming up with it all.
Note: G, a very sweet romance. Four stars!

  1. Believe it or not I've never read any Austen, I guess I need to get on that.
