First Line Friday – 30 November 2018 – The Making of Mrs. Hale (Carolyn Miller)

Welcome to First Line Friday, hosted by Hoarding Books! My choice for this week is a Regency romance that turns the romance and excitement of an elopement to Gretna Green on its head. The Making of Mrs. Hale is the third and final book in Carolyn Miller’s Regency Brides: A Promise of Hope series. You can read my full review here, but I will tell you this one is my favourite of the series!

~ About the Book ~

Marry in haste, repent in leisure—Mrs. Hale is about to find out how painful that repentance can truly be.

Julia Hale ran off to be married in Gretna Green, following romance instead of common sense. But her tale isn’t turning into a happily ever after. Her new husband is gone and she doesn’t know where—or if he’s ever coming back. Julia has no option but to head home to the family she betrayed by eloping and to hope they’ll forgive her. Especially now that she might be carrying a baby from her brief marriage.

Carolyn Miller’s clean and wholesome Regency romances continue with The Making of Mrs. Hale, following familiar characters as they learn how restoration can occur by finding hope and healing through a deep relationship with God. Full of rich historical details and witty banter, this series continues to draw in fans of Jane Austen, Sarah Ladd, and Julie Klassen.
