If you like period fiction and Jane Austen, you will love Linore Rose Burkard’s regency romance, Before the Season Ends.

The setting is early 1800s, the plot involves a true-hearted young woman of little means, Ariana Forsythe, who decides to marry an elderly parson because marrying someone who shares her faith is her utmost priority. Her parents whisk her off to London to live with a wealthy aunt, who sets her up in fine state for the season. She eventually meets Mr. Mornay, a disgruntled and angry young aristocrat who has determined never again to be taken in by feminine wiles or fruitless faith. But there is always more to a person than is commonly known.

A simple story, but the author so artfully and adeptly wraps it in authentic period language, style and custom, that the reader imagines herself in the scenes. The journey is well worth the obstacles that stand in the way of the main characters, who are realistic and identifiable. And wherever Miss Forsythe goes, she carries her faith with her unapologetically, giving the novel added depth.

I would recommend this novel to anyone who likes regency romance, especially with a faith based story.

The author employs authentic language which at times may require a look at the glossary for clarification, an aspect of regency fiction that I enjoy.
