The best Books The Maid of Fairbourne Hall First posted on my blog, Legacy of a Writer.Julie Klassen is the 21st century's Jane Austen! I knew she was good after reading The Apothocary’s Daughter, but The Maid of Fairbourne Hall really blew me away. Open this book and Klassen will transports you back to the early 1800s, in England, when upper-class Margaret Macy suddenly finds her life altered to that of a lowly housemaid.The first character that struck me the strongest and grabbed my attention was wild-mannered and dashingly good looking Nathaniel Upchurch. At his first appearance after years in Barabdos, I was glued to the pages and instantly intrigued about this man. Margaret took a little longer for me to warm up to, but through no fault of the author! She was just a bit too uppity. Once she was brought low and humbled as a housemaid—and learned so many lessons about the people who work so hard behind the scenes—she grew on me.For being a rather thick book, I flew through the pages, easily. And found it very hard to put it down at the end of each chapter. Klassen excels at keeping the reader riveted to the pages, both with her awesome, intricate storyplot and her deep, endearing characters.The things that Margaret had to go through as a housemaid certainly made for some amusing moments. Especially her first time at emptying a chamber pot! Haha, I was laughing out loud—how gross! As to questionable content, there really wasn’t any worth mentioning. A few of the male characters have less than honorable designs toward women, especially the servant girls, but details are never given.If you love the Jane Austen classics, then you have to try one of Julie Klassen’s novels and discover that Austen’s brilliance with regency romances lives on! I was swept away in this lovely tale where the reader gets a behind the scenes look at what life was like for the servants in a 19th century English manor. You won’t be disappointed!
