    Summerset Abbey Giveaway

1913: In a sprawling manor on the outskirts of London, three young women seek to fulfill their destinies and desires amidst the unspoken rules of society and the distant rumblings of war. . . . Rowena Buxton 

Sir Philip Buxton raised three girls into beautiful and capable young women in a bohemian household that defied Edwardian tradition. Eldest sister Rowena was taught to value people, not wealth or status. But everything she believes will be tested when Sir Philip dies, and the girls must live under their uncle’s guardianship at the vast family estate, Summerset Abbey. Standing up for a beloved family member sequestered to the “underclass” in this privileged new world, and drawn into the Cunning Coterie, an exclusive social circle of aristocratic “rebels,” Rowena must decide where her true passions—and loyalties—lie.

Victoria Buxton 

Frail in body but filled with an audacious spirit, Victoria secretly dreams of attending university to become a botanist like her father. But this most unladylike wish is not her only secret—Victoria has stumbled upon a family scandal that, if revealed, has the potential to change lives forever. . . .

Prudence Tate 

Prudence was lovingly brought up alongside Victoria and Rowena, and their bond is as strong as blood. But by birth she is a governess’s daughter, and to the lord of Summerset Abbey, that makes her a commoner who must take her true place in society—as lady’s maid to her beloved “sisters.” But Pru doesn’t belong in the downstairs world of the household staff any more than she belongs upstairs with the Buxton girls. And when a young lord catches her eye, she begins to wonder if she’ll ever truly carve out a place for herself at Summerset Abbey.

    I'm not sure. Perhaps a little of all three :-)
    I am so super excited to read this novel!

    Probably Rowena :) I'd love to win a copy, it sounds like a really good read. Many thanks for the giveaway!

  1. I'm definitely a mix between the first and the last. I'm caring toward people, but w/o money, it's hard to focus on that and not funds. And I also feel as though I'm meant for something more than I was born into.

    I think Victoria!

  1. I think Victoria just because I am following in my Dad's footsteps as well. Although I also kind of relate to Rowena because I'm the older sister as well =)

  1. Steph said...:

    Probably Rowena. This sounds like such an interesting and wonderful book!

  1. Rain Jeys said...:

    I would say Rowena. I don't put a lot of value on possessions. Who you are matters more to me. Thanks for the chance to win!

  1. Victoria. I would have loved to have been a Botanist

  1. The picture of the cover is very nice, and the girl is very beautiful, but the story don't sounds very good (to me, sure).

  1. Arra A. said...:

    Victoria because I also have that quality that i wanted to prove myself and to show others that I am an independent woman! I can do what men can do as well! ;)

    I like the sound of Victoria - knowledge and learning, doing what you're passionate about has always been important.

  1. Rowena, I guess.. Maybe because I'm the eldest daughter too ^^
