Scandal Comes to the Bingleys by Margaret Lynette Sharp is a short romantic story of a young couple that wishes to be married after a short relationship. Edgar, the best of the suitors, asks Maria’s father, Charles, for permission to take his daughter’s hand in marriage. As days go by, a letter arrives that makes Charles wonder if his agreement was the right choice for his loving daughter; the contents pertain to less than gentlemanly behavior in Edgar’s not too distant past. Now the Bingleys must figure out if there is any truth to the terrible tidings and if Edgar can ever be a part of the family as Maria’s husband, or if the scandal will be too great a burden for the family to bear.
Margaret Lynette Sharp has a very interesting style of writing romantic tales as she spins the plot of scandal into this short sweet story. The caring family nature and loving compassion the Bingleys express allow the reader to be able to feel like they are a part of the story too. I love Margaret Lynette Sharp’s unique style of telling a timeless romantic tale where men still asked permission for the affections of the woman they love. The story shares the hope that even through trials and obstacles, true love can still be found. I would definitely recommend Scandal Comes to the Bingleys by Margaret Lynette Sharp to anyone that has a hopeless romantic heart as I do.
