Review + Giveaway: Before She Became a Lady by Wareeze Woodson

Before She Became a Lady Cover


A Sweet Historical Romance Novel: Love Conquers All
Rating: 5 Stars

Before She Became A Lady is a sweet romance novel depicting how even during historical past, love still overcomes no matter what challenges lie in its path.

The story centers around Laurel Collingsworth, only 17 years of age but already set to marry Lord Robert Lanningham.  Reading the first few pages, I had this initial impression of her being immature and how she may not yet be primed for marriage. As the story developed, I started seeing a transformation within her, and by the very last page, she had become a totally different person, one definitely fit to be called a Lady.

Perhaps it is the different clashes, conflicts and challenges she faced all throughout the story that molded her character. It is not only the new environment that she found herself in, or the new faces that she had to live and contend with day-in day-out, but also having to adjust to married life and even to live with and love a "different" Robert.  Through all this, we see Laurel started portraying courage, a steely determination and a new level of maturity in her character to rise above all these odds.

The pace of the story is just right. Personally, I had hoped for a more intense resolution on the mystery aspects in the story. This would have added  a few thrilling moments.

Nevertheless, I enjoyed reading the story as a whole, especially the historical nature of the story. Fans of historical romance will definitely love this.

Laurel Collingsworth, seventeen and deeply in love, expects to marry her hero and live in wedded bliss forever after. Instead, with the ink barely dry on the marriage lines, Lord Robert Laningham is called away to Spain and the war. With a heavy heart, she sends her husband off with a kiss and a prayer for his safe return.

Now alone in her new role of Lady Laningham, she faces a series of terrifying events, shadowy intruders, missing jewelry, and mysterious footfalls in the night. Added to her alarms, she must fight her hostile sister-in-law for the reigns of her husband’s establishment.

When Lord Robert Laningham returns, can she convince him danger stalks the halls of the ancient mansion? In his wounded state, will he listen or must she protect her child, her recovering husband, and her household by herself?
