Marry in haste, repent in leisure--Mrs. Hale is about to find out how painful that repentance can truly be.

Julia Hale ran off to be married in Gretna Green, following romance instead of common sense. But her tale isn't turning into a happily ever after. Her new husband is gone and she doesn't know where--or if he's ever coming back. Julia has no option but to head home to the family she betrayed by eloping and to hope they'll forgive her. Especially now that she might be carrying a baby from her brief marriage.

Carolyn Miller's clean and wholesome Regency romances continue with The Making of Mrs. Hale, following familiar characters as they learn how restoration can occur by finding hope and healing through a deep relationship with God. Full of rich historical details and witty banter, this series continues to draw in fans of Jane Austen, Sarah Ladd, and Julie Klassen.

Carolyn Miller permanently resides on my must-read list of authors of Regency fiction. She once again captivated me with this latest novel. While it can be read as a standalone, reading her earlier novels, when Julia's elopement occurred, makes this novel that much more satisfying. I also loved the reappearance of Catherine and Serena from the first two books in this series. The Making of Mrs. Hale brims with historical accuracy, pulses with well-drawn and believable characters, and blends together intrigue, danger, romance, and forgiveness. While the setting is far removed from our contemporary times, the struggles of the human heart are timeless, and I was inspired and convicted as I read. Don't miss this satisfying and powerful tale.
