Philip Wyndham has never envied his older brother for being the heir to Edenbrooke. He would much rather carve out his own destiny than live under the constraints of that position. But when his older brother dies unexpectedly, Philip's life is turned upside down as duty requires him to give up the life he planned. Philip takes on his new role as the most sought-after bachelor in London with alternating reluctance, boredom, and resentment. But all that changes the night fate leads him to an inn, where he meets the incomparable Marianne Daventry.
This novelette from Philip's perspective is so wonderful, I just wish, along with all of Julianne Donaldson's other fans, that this had been a full length novel. Edenbrooke quickly became one of my favorite novels after I read it a few years ago. I was so excited to know that we would get a look at this story from Philip's viewpoint. It was so great to be taken back to the wonderful world found in Edenbrooke.
It was interesting to "meet" the Philip "pre-Marianne" and see what a hard job she really had in turning him around. After reading Heir to Edenbrooke it made me fall in love with this fabulous character all over again. Please realize if you've never read a novelette before, it is a short read and not a full length novel. Don't disappoint yourself by going into this thinking there is more than there is: there's only 53 pages, but boy do they pay off.
If you are a fan of Edenbrooke, you will love this closer look into the man who not only stole Marianne's heart, but also yours I'm willing to bet. Julianne Donaldson delivers on this prequel look at Edenbrooke.
