From Meredith Allard, author of the bestselling Loving Husband Trilogy, comes When It Rained at Hembry Castle, a lush historical novel set in Victorian England.

When the 8th Earl of Staton dies, his eldest son, the unreliable Richard, inherits the title and the family’s home—Hembry Castle. The Earl's niece, the American-born Daphne, is intrigued by Edward Ellis, a rising author with a first-hand knowledge of Hembry Castle—from the servants’ hall. And Edward, though captivated by the lovely Daphne, has his own hurdles he must overcome. Can Richard come to terms with his title before bringing ruin on his family? Will Edward and Daphne find their way to each other despite the obstacles of life at Hembry Castle?
When It Rained at Hembry Castle is a page-turning, romantic novel with vivid characters and an engrossing story that will keep you guessing until the end.

I apologize for my late review! "When it Rained at Hembry Castle" was such an enjoyable read! True to it's advertizement it is very simalar to Downtown Abbey. I personally love Victorian times so this was a very easy story for me to get into. Aside from the Victorian setting is the love story that develops between Edward and Daphne. I really enjoyed their tension and eventually how they fell in love. There are some sweet and witty scenes that had me chuckling! Every sentence in this beautifully written story had a purpose and I was wrapped up in the world of Hembry Castle! Loved and highly recommend!
