Book Review: Kit and Elizabeth

Lady Elizabeth Spaulding’s world has fallen apart. Despite living her entire life to please her demanding parents, the Duke and Duchess of Marwood, she has little to show for it. After Elizabeth’s second failed betrothal, her father’s debts and appalling acts of retaliation force him to flee the country, consigning Elizabeth and her bitter mother to a life of poverty and exile. But Elizabeth’s fortunes change one day when an elderly acquaintance makes her an offer she can’t refuse.
Lady Walmsley, widowed and childless, is in need of a lady’s companion—and who better than the lovely Lady Elizabeth? Determined to rescue Elizabeth from her dreary life in the country, Lady Walmsley secures the help of Kit, the dashing Earl of Cantwell, in her quest. But the young woman they find is a ghost of the charming girl they once knew. Taken in by Lady Walmsley, and with Kit’s enthusiastic encouragement, Elizabeth finds herself pushed further and further from her empty solitude as she discovers the joy of truly living. Now, for the first time in her life, she must decide for herself who she is and if she deserves to be loved. 

I received a free digital copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

This was such a well written story. It drew me in from the start. I love the beautiful imagery portrayed by the author. Karen Tuft is such a talented writer. She captivates her audience and creates such interesting and vivid characters. 

My favorite part of this character driven story was how much the characters developed through the pages. Tuft put Elizabeth in such heartbreaking circumstances that just felt very real. I loved seeing Elizabeth grow in both her self confidence and her self worth. 

I love a good historical romance, and this has to be one of my favorites. There were so many ups and downs that it keeps you guessing! I love how I just couldn’t wait to see what would happen. 

Thank you so much to Karen Tuft, Covenant Communications, and NetGalley for allowing me to review this title.
