Lady of Milkweed Manor by Julie Klassen **debut author

As Charlotte drew closer to the looming grey edifice that was to become her temporary home, she could not help but notice the secretive shuttered windows. Then she noticed the milkweeds…

Even a proper vicar's daughter can make a mistake…and now Charlotte Lamb must pay a high price for her fall. To avoid the prying eyes of all who know her, she hides herself away in London's forbidding "Milkweed Manor," a place of mystery and lore, of old secrets and new birth. But once there, she comes face to face with a suitor from her past--a man who now hides secrets of his own. Both are determined, with God's help, to protect those they love. But neither can imagine the depth of sacrifice that will be required. Sprinkled with fascinating details about the lives of women in Regency England, Lady of Milkweed Manor is a moving romantic drama about the redemption of past failings and the beauty of sacrificial love.

My Heart Remembers by Kim Vogel Sawyer

United by blood, divided by time, will three orphan train siblings ever find one another again? Orphaned in a tenement fire, three Irish-immigrant children are sent to Missouri to be adopted. Despite eight-year-old Maelle's desperate attempts to keep her siblings together, each child is taken by a different family. Yet Maelle vows that she will never stop searching for her brother and sister—and that they will be together one day in the future. Seventeen years later, Maelle is still searching. But the years have washed away her hope... and her memories. What are Mattie and Molly doing now? Where has life taken them? Will she ever see her brother and sister again?

Sister's Choice by Judith Pella

When it comes to quilting, Maggie Newcomb is all thumbs. And nobody rubs it in more than Emma Jean Stoddard. But Maggie swallows her ire for one simple reason—she has
a crush on Emma Jean's handsome son, Colby, and doesn't want to ruin her chances. So she works hard to become the best quilter in Maintown. Her plan seems to be working—that is, until Tamara Brennan comes to town. Tamara is wealthy and poised as well as beautiful, and immediately turns Colby's head. Evan Parker is smitten by Tamara, too, but unlike Colby, he isn't the dashing, athletic type. He's very smart, no doubt, but rather bookish and unexciting. Maggie forms a plan: She'll help Evan win Tamara's affection so that Colby will once again notice her. But befriending Evan has unforeseen consequences, and before long, Maggie is more confused than ever about what she truly desires in life.

A Touch of Grace by Lauraine Snelling

Eighteen-year-old Grace Knutson loves Blessing, North Dakota, and sees no reason to leave. She's more serious-minded than her twin sister, Sophie, and is very sensitive to the feelings of others. In spite of her family's disapproval, Grace has always had a soft spot in her heart for Toby Valders. She's seen the vulnerable side he's kept well hidden. The arrival of Jonathan Gould, the handsome scion of a wealthy New York family, creates a flurry of anticipation and speculation in Blessing. Jonathan's father wants him to learn the value of manual labor and to appreciate the accomplishments of those not born to wealth. Surprisingly, the "city boy" takes to farm life, working from dawn to dusk alongside the others. Soon he finds himself inexplicably drawn to gentle, courageous Grace. But Jonathan's affection presents an agonizing dilemma for Grace. Is he the one who represents the life she truly desires?

Yeah these do sound good. I normally hear Historical fiction and switch off but I really like the sound of these. Will have to keep my eyes out for them.

I don't read as much historical as I used to, but the first two look good.

Haven't had much time on the 'puter as of late but I'm currently reading "Zero-G" by Alton Gansky. Have you whittled down the pile awaiting you after your holiday?
