Family travel on Prince Edward Island (part 1)
Molly was a nice character. She was sweet, and attractive, and humble. A quiet, gentle girl. I really liked her, but I'm more for the sassy heroine. Oh well. Peter was perfect.

It was annoying. He never did a single thing wrong. No offense to anyone, but I do not like guys that perfect; that's just way too unrealistic. He was a sweet guy though. I just wish he was less perfect and more expressive. And more romantic.
Earl of Washburn - I liked his character too. He was calm, kind, and faithful. I had no idea he was Peter's uncle. I mean, I figured out that he was what's-her-name's son, but I didn't realize that it made him the earl's nephew until it said so. Then I was, like, "Well, duh! Despite him being a bit bratty and his selfishness, he's a pretty good kid. He understands the importance of his duty. He's responsible, for the most part. And pretty sweet too not counting that one part which was totally not as important as they made it out to be, of course.
Compared with today's average year-old, he's actually pretty mature. I believe I have covered all the main characters covered. I recommend this novel to those who enjoy a sweet Victorian fairy tale. I may read more of Susan Page Davis.
Love Finds You Series
I'll definitely read more of the "Love Finds" You" series. Aug 11, Valerie Comer rated it really liked it. The royal visit only lasted 48 hours, but required a lot of planning to run smoothly. All of that is historical fact. Her main duty is housekeeping and this is where Peter first sees her. The Earl is equally determined to avoid the old man. View 1 comment.

This novel moves at a rather slow pace most of the way through, but it is an easy and enjoyable romance read as it focuses on an "upstairs-downstairs" romance between Peter who represents the upstairs and Molly a temporary maid-servant for the royal visit at the Governor's House. The historical detail was very well done and definitely added to the interest of the storyline.
This particular LFY was very light on the "faith" element to be designated a Christian fiction novel which is one reason I only gave it 4 stars along with the slow moving pace. Still an overall good read though for its historical detail. May 21, Laura rated it really liked it. Peter Stark is an understeward for the royal party. Peter is attracted to the beauty of the island and of Molly, whom he wants to protect from the playboy prince. Molly and Peter are both realistic characters with a familiarity about their histories that give them something in common.
I enjoyed reading about the romance set on this idyllic island. Highly recommended.

I had been looking forward to this book ever since my husband bought it for me as a birthday present a few years ago. However, when I finally got around to reading it today, I was actually a bit disappointed in it. There is very little interaction between the two main characters, certainly not enough to base a relationship off of, never mind a marriage.

The story revolves around the royal visit, but it doesn't paint a clear picture of island life or beauty, as most of the time the story had it raining. Both of these make it difficult for this reader to fully immerse themselves into the story.
What is even more jarring is the fact that the main characters in the story are actually somewhat distantly related to one another, and they still go through with a marriage! It rather ruined the ending for me, as I found myself wondering about their chances for genetic abnormalities in their children, rather than focusing on their happy ever after. All in all, a disappointment rather than a pleasure. Jun 04, Victoria rated it it was ok Shelves: books-i-ve-read. Molly wants to help her family by taking a maid position for a short while as the prince of Wales would be arriving to Prince Edward Island.
Peter Stark arrives a day in advance to set up accommodations.
He is a mere servant himself but appears to be an aristocrat to those around him. He has an upbringing that would make people probably look down on him. Molly's family has some sort of connection to Peter's "master" that he is curious about.
This story basically ties together well enough and the Molly wants to help her family by taking a maid position for a short while as the prince of Wales would be arriving to Prince Edward Island. This story basically ties together well enough and there aren't that many conflicting issues with it until later on, but most of it seemed to not show any dependency on God or mention of Him at all when this is supposed to be a Christian romance. Sure it was very clean, but I think they mentioned God about 3 times in passing only.

The story itself was cute though, but very basic. Jun 02, Amber Stokes rated it liked it. While the story is set in the same beautiful place as Anne of Green Gables, it stands on its own, unique and sweet. Like Cinderella, Molly is a young lady who wins the heart of the Prince despite her position as a maid in the lieutenant governor's household. But in an interesting twist, it's not the Prince who catches Molly's fancy--it's Peter Stark, attendant to an earl, with a complicated past.
The plot starts out slow, but the cute romance and the interesting details regarding the setting and the events for the Prince make this a quick read.https://grupoavigase.com/includes/392/6982-mujeres-solteras-cusco.php

While this book is not very deep, I enjoyed the fun summer trip to one place I really, really want to visit someday! Sep 23, Connie rated it really liked it. I have enjoyed reading books in the "Love Finds You" series. I have especially like the books that are historical fiction. I have also learned a lot about various geographical regions from many of these books.
After reading "Prince Edward", I am absolutely certain that I am very happy that I live in America where there are no formal class distinctions. Of course, there are informal class distinctions, but it seems to me that these can be overcome while formal class distinctions are often insurmoun I have enjoyed reading books in the "Love Finds You" series. Of course, there are informal class distinctions, but it seems to me that these can be overcome while formal class distinctions are often insurmountable. It is entertaining to follow the antics of "Downton Abby", but I would not want to live under such a system.
I do wish that the author had included more geographic details about Prince Edward Island.

There were some slow parts, a lot of descriptions and internal thoughts and little dialogue between the characters, but the rest of the story was greatly enjoyable.
Ever since I first heard about P. I love reading about the different locations, they all sounded very beautiful. I haven't read many books in the Love Finds You series, but I hope to read more of them. If this book sounds interesting to you I would recommend you read it, as I found it very enjoyable.
