About the Author
More from Carolyn
In 2015 I was fortunate enough to visit England and see my sister who was living there at the time. What followed was three weeks of visiting parts of England, Ireland and Scotland in a whistle-stop tour of some of the places I’d long dreamed about visiting, but never thought I’d get the chance: London, Brighton, the Blarney stone in an Irish castle, Chatsworth in the Peak District, Loch Ness and Culloden in the Scottish Highlands, the gorgeous grounds of Dunrobin Castle, and the beautiful Cotswolds of England, which includes World Heritage-listed Bath.
I’ve used many of the places I’ve visited as inspiration behind my historical stories, but none as much as the places I visited while in Bath. Pretty much every place I visited – Sydney Gardens, Bath Abbey, the Pump Room, The Assembly Rooms and more – were mentioned in my story Winning Miss Winthrop, which I view as my homage to Jane Austen’s Persuasion, which vies with Pride and Prejudice as my favorite Austen novel.
I loved my all-too-brief time in Bath, and I love this story, with its depiction of two people learning to overcome the misunderstandings of the past in order to find a future. Winning Miss Winthrop is the first book in the Regency Brides: A Promise of Hope series, and has the attention to period detail, romance, banter, and faith threads that readers in the Regency Brides series have come to expect. I hope readers enjoy Catherine and Jon’s story.
Winning Miss Winthrop by Carolyn Miller is book one in the Regency Brides:A promise of hope series. This book was originally published in 2018. I have read a few other books by this author and have always loved every single one. The author always nails all things regency. You can can tell that the author has done a lot of research to make the book feel real.
In this book we meet Catherine Winthrop. She’s had a hard time with love. A man she was once in love rejected her and the rejection cut her deep. She’s been praying and crying out to God. Suddenly he’s back in her life. She’s not happy because of the reason.
Jonathan is at a whole different stage of his life. He’s inheriting everything Catherine thought would be hers someday. However when her father passed, it went to him. She is his 3rd cousin. He’s never stopped thinking about Catherine. He’s got a title and a lot of women that want to marry him. However he gave his heart away long ago. Can these two move away from the hurt of the past.
The author has crafted some memorable characters. They were flawed. They were swoon worthy together. The author wove in a strong faith element. The story of forgiveness is present through the whole book. She knows her time period and tells the story magically.
I received a copy of this book through the Celebrate Lit blogging program. All thoughts are my own.
