Item description for Jubilee Bride (Brides Of Montclair #9) by Jane Peart...
Overview In 1897, England celebrates Queen Victoria's diamond "Jubilee"--the 50th year of her reign. Garnet invites her American relatives to England to celebrate with her, but during the course of the summer, the younger generation of this noble Virginia lineage finds romance and unexpected affections at every turn.
Publishers Description The lake held special memories of her times with Jeff. Here they had spent hours talking, feeding the swans, and skipping pebbles across the smooth surface, creating circles within circles. One afternoon in particular Faith remembered. Jeff had kissed her. It was their first real kiss. In it were all Faith's dreams, her longings, her hopes, her loyalty and love. 'Don't ever stop believing in me, ' Jeff begged. 'I promise, I never will, ' she had whispered. Did Jeff remember that day? For Faith, that day, that kiss, that promise were a treasured memory, cherished as a special bond between them of mutual trust and love. Could he have forgotten? It was to be a very special summer, the summer of Queen Victoria's Jubilee, the sixtieth year of the English monarch's reign. It was the summer Faith Devlin had looked forward to with great anticipation--the pressures of her debutante year were over, Jeff Montrose was back in London, and her American cousins were coming for a family reunion at the beautiful country estate of Birchfields. It was the summer of unexpected encounters and romantic enterprises -- but it was not to be the summer of Faith Devlin's dreams. .

Reviews - What do customers think about Jubilee Bride (Brides Of Montclair #9)?
Wonderful herone...but Jeff is no hero Sep 23, 2009
As much as I loved Faith, I really wish she had married a better man than Jeff Montrose. I didn't really get the attraction between the two of them. Until the end, I didn't even really think he paid enough attention to her--I didn't see the chemistry. He seemed too involved in his art for anybody to really enter his heart.
Even though I didn't care too much for Jeff, I liked his half-brother Jonathan Montrose who actually does behave like a gentleman. The story foreshadows his marriage to Phoebe MacPherson. Druscilla Montrose is very likable as well. Their daughters are likable as well, but I didn't get to know them well enough. There were too many stories in this one book--I couldn't absorb it all.
Perhaps my favorite part in the book is when Garnet finds out Faith has eloped with Jeff, and she struggles because Faith realized her dream, and she didn't. Then she realizes she got her dream when she married Jeremy. It really shows that fate was kinder to her because she didn't get her way.
