I must have liked it, I hung on to it for many years. But I did like most of this author's historical fiction...she was a jewel among writers. "...a lakeside resort in the breezy summer of 1895, where love bloomed for two hearts from different worlds..."
This is one of the best books I've ever read! Wonderfully written! LOVED IT!
1895 in Minnesota a rich girl falls for a mere laborer. The girls parents do anything and everything to keep them apart.
Set at the turn of the century, NOVEMBER OF THE HEART tells of Lorna Barnett--a young woman from a wealthy St. Paul family..and Jens Harken--the ambitious dreamer who works in the kitchen of her family's summer estate. Trapped in a rigid social caste system yet drawn inexorably together, Lorna and Jens begin a clandestine affair as fresh and innocent as the summer itself. But the repercussions of that passionate idyll soon separate them against their wills, forcing them through buried scandal and shame to endure a loneliness where it is always the "November of the heart." Does love have the power to reunite themn--when the world wills them apart?
