Now, A Change Of Fortune, that is something a few of us could use. In this case, our Lady in hiding, Eliza aka Miss Sumner aka titled daughter of Lord Southmoor, is in a mess! While working as a "plain" governess, she winds up pressed back out into the social circles of New York. It was here that she thought she could be in hiding since loosing her fiance' and her fortune back in England. That plan was working, until she was pressed into a dinner where she meets Mr. Hamilton Beckett, and his brother. The elder Mr. Beckett is the catch that none of the ladies can seem to catch, and he is already smitten with Eliza.
Soon they find they are both trailing the same family, the same man, the man who has taken Eliza's fortune and changed her life so drastically. Events just keep cascading and soon Eliza is working rather closely with Hamilton and she isn't totally sure how she feels about it, until his children tug at her heart and she finds herself wondering if her new lot in life will be being their governess if her fortune can't be reclaimed.
This book was just lovely to read. It was funny, and cute, and moved at a good pace. The characters grew and developed with each other and with God. There was adventure, mystery, pain, and healing and forgiveness and closure and yet... new things opening and starting. I enjoyed this book quite well!
