    Mourning the death from consumption of her young sister, Fanny, Lady Jean Conway goes home to the Brecon dower house to be comforted by her former governess, Miss Bluestone. Rescued from a flood by Lord Clanross&#x;s Scots steward James Sholto, .   Chapter 1 Sir Walter Elliot, of Kellynch Hall, in Somersetshire, was a man who, for his own amusement, never took up any book but the Baronetage; there he found occupation for an idle hour, and consolation in a distressed one; there his faculties were roused into admiration and respect, by contemplating the limited remnant of the earliest patents; there any unwelcome sensations, arising .

    This book has a rabbit-out-of-the-hat ending, but the hunt balls, spiteful rivals, faux ghosts and endless wine taking are so funny to me that I don't mind at all.

The second of Sheila Simonson's four Regencies, following upon A Cousinly Connexion, it is written in the first person, an unusual approach that both limits and strengthens the story. It takes a while to warm up to Lady Elizabeth, who is a much more self-contained character than the usual female lead in a romance such as this, so the first /5(8).

Sheila Simonson's "A Cousinly Connexion" Like "Lady Elizabeth's Comet", this book is a wonderful depiction of Regency England, with all the details (language, dress, society, household details, farming, horses, climate, travel, etc etc) accurate for the time and place. The story is about Jane Ash, a young woman who is in danger of being put "on the shelf" but who refuses to marry her 4/5.

This is similar in plot to Lady Elizabeths Comet (The Conway Series Book 2) (which happens to be Simonson's gem), in that the hero, who's a somewhat estranged family member, is required to take up his family's responsibilities as the new head of household.

It's a complicated family, what with second marriages and all, but our hero is legitimate heir and stepson to the surviving widow, /5(13).

When Lady Meriden's eldest stepson and husband die within days of each other, the estate passes to the second stepson. No one has seen him in years, yet he inherits everything, including his father's gambling debts and guardianship of his seven Author: Sheila Simonson.

It's a pity that Sheila Simonson only wrote four books in this vein, as I enjoyed A Cousinly Connexion immensely (despite the overly pink cover!), and think her work might be just the sort of thing I've been wanting.

Author of Skylark, A cousinly connexion, Larkspur, Lady Elizabeth's comet, Mudlark, Meadowlark, A Cousinly Conexion, An Old Chaos A Latouche County Mystery. A Cousinly Connexion () At the start of the book’s story, it is shown that Lark is about to spend a weekend at the lodge of poet Dai Llewellyn located in the mountains for the 4th July celebrations.

Even though Dai is the mentor of Lark’s mother, she does not feel. This book is a slow build and it takes a while to warm up to the lead female (and to the first person tense), but it is a beautiful account of day to day life and family doings. Id say it is that subtle sort of understated romance of the Pride and Predjudice style where all is conveyed in supportive actions or meaningful glances until the final /5(65).

Dear Mrs Simonson. I first read “Lady Elizabeth’s Comet” a few years ago when I was lucky enough to score a copy of it through a used bookstore.

Ever since then, I’ve touted its merits to those looking for intelligent heroines, beta heroes and wonderful storytelling.Lady Elizabeth's Comet & Love & Folly follow the progress of our hero & heroine as minor characters in those books.

4 those who like 2 know what happens later. Sheila Simonson only ever wrote 4 Regency romances; I bought this & A Cousinly Connexion because I had 2 have them all.
