Mary had no idea how her life was about to change when a mysterious man took her from the Barlow home for a midnight ride in a carriage because she "had the look.” What look did she have? The distinct features of the Sommelroux family, more specifically, Felicity, who was to inherit Twillingmarche following her eighteenth birthday and an arranged marriage to her stepbrother, Roland. Mary was to be transformed into a lady and expected to play the role of Felicity in a scheme designed to prevent her American cousin, Roderick, from inheriting. Having fallen instantly in love with Twillingmarche, Mary is eager to comply, playing the part while endearing herself to the estate’s staff. One particular footman had caught her eye, but she would never be able to reveal her feelings until the drama was played out. Will she play her part well enough to prevent anyone from discovering that she is not the real Felicity? Will the hopes of those counting on her to keep the family estate out of the hands of the galling American be dashed?
Vera Mont has penned a rags-to-riches masterpiece with enough intrigue to keep readers in constant angst. In Twillingmarche, you’ll be introduced to realistic characters who either capture your heart or instantly turn you against them. Mont will keep you in the dark from beginning to end, hoping that Mary/Felicity and those who have maintained the great estate for centuries will win. Throughout the story, Mont offers commentary on several themes, like true love winning over marriages of convenience and the grace of a real lady in place of those who put on a good show. Above all, Twillingmarche celebrates the power of the “little people,” who come together to hold onto a dream that rightly belongs to them. Full of suspense, heartwarming, and peppered with humor, you will be captivated from beginning to end by this well-crafted tale.
