A Lady Awakened

A Lady Awakened
Cecilia Grant

Martha has been recently widowed. She can't really say she's sorry, except the part about losing the estate if she doesn't have an heir. So she sets about to get one.

I have no idea if the author intended it this way or not, but I laughed my way through this book. It was hilarious. The main character, Martha, was married young and spent the entirety of her brief marriage at a country estate. She is naive about everything. She doesn't relate well to others and is always thinking something hilarious. Think trading babies, weird pigs, and trying to convince poor peasant girls to read Shakespeare.

The story plot was very predictable, even for a romance. What I enjoyed was seeing the world through the character's eyes. It was a fun, fast read.

I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
