Reviews - What do customers think about Dear Lady?

Dear Lady is Endearing  Jul 1, 2006

Dear Lady is a charming story of Lady Elizabeth Wellington of Langford House, Buckinghamshire, England, who arrives to a small town in Montana to inquire about a teaching position. Her motivation to leave a life of luxury is to escape from marrying a very unlovable man. She ends up finding unexpected love in this small town. It's an endearing story and a fun read for summertime vacation, or any time.
English Woman, Montana Man and some busybodies to boot  Apr 2, 2006
This could be a comedy of errors. People being caught in all sorts of not-good-lookin' situations. Strong characters, near misses, wrong impressions, righteous looking trouble makers, ohhh all the right ingredients for a lovely romance novel!!
Wonderful read!  May 6, 2004
Determined not to marry a man she didn't love, Lady Elizabeth Wellington jumps a ship to America to run away from a marriage which her recently deceased father had arranged. Her lone friend in America is her young pen pal, Janie Garrett, in New Prospects, Montana. Remembering that Janie had recently said the town needed a new school teacher, Lady Elizabeth travels to New Prospects and applies for the job. The town's wealthy banker, Owen Simpson, immediately falls in love with Lady Elizabeth. She, however, has her eye on the widowed father of young Janie. Fast and enjoyable read. Get all your chores done, sit out on the swing, and lose yourself in New Prospects, Montana and love.
Fast and Enjoyable Read  Jul 14, 2003
Set in 1897, Lady Elizabeth Wellington leaves her native England for New Prospects, Montana, home of her ten-year old pen pal, Janie Steele. In one of her letters, Janie mentioned the town needed a schoolteacher. To avoid an arranged marriage, Beth arrives on the doorstep of Janie and her widowed father, Garret Steele. Garret loves his daughter, but is determined not to become emotionally involved with Beth because of unresolved feelings for his deceased wife. Parts of the book are letters to her friends, Mary Malone and Inga Linberg, with whom she traveled to America (Hatcher tells Mary's story in In His Arms and Inga's story in Patterns of Love.) The letters provide insight to Beth's feelings for handsome, but emotionally aloof, Garret Steele, and the persistent mayor, Owen Simpson.
Overall, I enjoyed the story. It was a fast, and enjoyable read. I especially found Beth's letters to her friends a creative substitute for "girl talk." Because Beth is new in town, and English to boot, she is lacking female companionship throughout the story. Some events in the story were not given proper attention; for example, a marriage in the story felt underdeveloped and rushed. Despite this, I enjoyed reading Dear Lady enough to investigate the other books in the series. 4.25/5
Dear Lady  Mar 11, 2002
Dear Lady is the story of Lady Elizabeth Wellington, an English woman in her twenties. She comes to America in 1897 to escape an arranged marriage to Perceval Griffith, Lord Altberry. Lady Elizabeth, having no family of her own, turns to the only good friend she has left, ten year old Janie, whom she had written to but never met. Janie lives in Montana with her father on his ranch.
Elizabeth becomes the schoolteacher for New Prospects, the nearby town, and begins a new life in the small town which is surrounded by mountains. As life goes on, the mayor shows a respectful interest in Beth, or Miss Wellington, as all but one of her students endearingly call her. Yet Beth finds herself falling in love with the mayor's friend; Janie's father. Their hidden pasts, which are brought to the present, and the often unthinkable actions of Beth's friends and enemies surprisingly expose who her heart really belongs to.
I really enjoyed this book because of all the emotions it activated in me. Dear Lady made me feel angry at some characters, shocked at many actions and situations, helpless to change a situation that I knew was wrong, although later on it turned out for good, and made me ache at both sad and joyful parts. Also, there is always some action going on; there are no boring sections anywhere in this book. This is probably the best book I've ever read, and I have read a fair share for one my age. Anyone who appreciates a good emotional romance about faith with action involved will relish this amazing story of unexpected love.
