|Historical Fiction Novella|
The Female Correspondent by Eva Deverell is a historical novella approximately 55 pages in length that I downloaded to my Kindle for Free from Amazon.
Here's a blurb about The Female Correspondent by Eva Deverell from Amazon:
Beatrice Debord has assumed a male pseudonym in her correspondence with famous botanist, Henry Burbank. When, impressed and intrigued by her knowledge and reticence, he seeks out his correspondent, Beatrice is forced to invent a series of lies for the fictional Mr. Allenham’s whereabouts. A clean regency romance in the vein of Georgette Heyer.Below is my honest review of The Female Correspondent by Eva Deverell.
I enjoy reading historical fiction and enjoyed the premise of The Female Correspondent by Eva Deverell. I also thought the cover art/design for The Female Correspondent was nicely done. I did enjoy reading The Female Correspondent very much even if I did find it a bit predictable... It was only a matter of time before Henry Burbank discovers that the Beatrice Debord has been the one sending him botanical information. Of course, Mr. Burbank is furious with Miss Debord for lying to him, but in the end they become romantically involved.
I didn't much care for Beatrice Debord's brother John, nor his wife, Clara... Both of them seemed so stereotypical of what you'd think people were like a couple of centuries ago. Other than that, The Female Correspondent was a pleasant read.
I am giving The Female Correspondent by Eva Deverell a rating of 3 stars out of 5 stars.
Until my next post, happy reading!!
