Summary

Patience Creighton has devoted her life to running her father's boarding school. But when the enigmatic master of the estate appears at her door, battered and unconscious, the young headmistress suddenly finds her livelihood - and her heart - in the hands of one dangerously handsome gentleman. At twenty-five, Patience Creighton is already a spinster. The busy headmistress of Rosemere always expected a dashing man to sweep her off her feet and take her away…but that man never came. And since her father's death, keeping the school running and her mother happy has been plenty to keep her occupied.
William Sterling dallied his way into financial trouble and mortal danger. When he is assaulted by his creditors' henchmen on the road home from a tavern, he guides his horse to the doorstep of his tenant, the Rosemere School for Young Ladies. After being tended to by Patience, the wounded William rides off into the dawn - but makes a point to learn more about the lovely headmistress. As he spends more time at Rosemere, something delicate begins to develop between William and Patience. But that will not deter William's creditors. With little money to repay his debts, and less for the upkeep of his estate, it becomes clear that sacrificing Rosemere may be the only way to preserve his legacy. But it may also cost him his happiness.

Good sequel to Heiress of Winterwood

What did you like best about The Headmistress of Rosemere? What did you like least?

Good sequel to the last, featuring a character I liked from it. Though I did not enjoy it as much as the last, a little slow and mushy in places.

What aspect of Henrietta Meire’s performance might you have changed?

British narrator, which was more fitting, but perhaps could have read with a little more enthusiasm.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

Yes

Worst narrator ever!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator - what was she trying to do? Terrible accents, terrible inflection absolutely no feeling what so ever! A disaster!!!

How could the performance have been better?

Emotion! Common sense! Her male characters all sounded like either drunk or mentally deficient!

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes
