The Maid of Fairbourne Hall
The Maid of Fairbourne Hall, by Julie Klassen. Margaret Macy is a spoiled girl, who's never had to do anything for herself before. After the death of her father, her mother remarries a less than quality man! When he learns of Margaret's coming inheritance, he insists on his nephew to come and try and court her so that she will marry him and give him a chance at the money! When Margaret learns of his plan of a less than honorable way of trying to force her into marriage, she flee's in fear of what he'll do to her. She finds herself working as a maid at the home of a suitor she once rejected. She tries her best to conceal her identity and prays that no one will recognize her till she can make it to her birthday and her inheritance and have the ability to defend herself.
I initially wasn't looking forward to reading this book, just because the story just sounded like a story that's been done a million times before. But I'm glad to say I was so pleasantly surprised! It ended up being an excellent book and one that I enjoyed from beginning to end! It showed the struggle of some one who lived a privileged life and the fall into working life, and it did it well! I will be donating this book to our church library so that many more can enjoy it!
