Not all love is found in London . . .

Spring at Tribbley Hall by Sian Ann Bessey
When Charlotte’s grandmother invites her to accompany her to Norfolk, Charlotte jumps at the chance to visit the sea and escape the fuss surrounding her sister’s wedding preparations in London. Lord William Cheston, on the other hand, is most unhappy when his mother informs him that her old friend and a granddaughter are coming to stay. Not only is it lambing season, but he’s also dealing with the mysterious loss of several sheep. The last thing he needs is a child underfoot. When Charlotte and William first meet, he does not realize that the lovely young lady is the granddaughter in question, and she assumes that the man dressed in work clothes in the barn is a servant. A dinner party at the house introduces Charlotte to some of the gentry living nearby but cannot compare to her experience the next evening, when she and William battle to save the life of a newborn lamb. Soon afterward, Charlotte stumbles upon a clue to William’s sheep’s disappearance. And when her life is placed in jeopardy, William is forced to choose between saving Charlotte and catching the thief.

Love of My Heart by Sarah M. Eden
Cordelia Wakefield has never lived anywhere but London and is not overly happy when her family is forced to retrench to a small estate near Teviotbrae, Scotland. An ill-fated game of battledore and shuttlecock brings her face-to-racquet with Sebastian, who runs the home farm at nearby Teviot Castle. What begins as a clash of personalities, expectations, and preferences, soon leads to a friendship neither had expected. As the magic of Teviotbrae weaves its spell, the possibility of something more than friendship begins to blossom. But what future is there for a lowly farmer and a London lady?

Miss Smith Goes to Wiltshire by Rebecca Connolly
Martha Smith wants to marry for love, and will not be persuaded otherwise. She is highly sought after in Society for her beauty and status, but refuses to consider any suitor whose only claim is that his prospects meet with her mother’s approval. Her widowed mother has had enough of Martha’s romantic sensibilities, and is sending her to stay with unfortunate cousins in Wiltshire to show her that marrying for love is a risk that is too great. Benjamin Steele, Lord Hillier, is working on his new and dilapidated estate when he first catches sight of the striking Martha Smith. Becoming Lord Hillier has only brought him a house that needs significant repairs, tenant farms that had been abandoned, and only the money he’d already possessed. He wants meaning in his life, and he’s more than willing to work for it. Though worlds apart in all else, on this point they can agree: a life of meaning would change everything.


I have always loved how Timeless Collections brings together such great authors, but this book may be one of my favorites. Not only do I love the authors and their stories, but this was such a great theme. I also loved how there were different locations included in every story.

Spring at Tribbley Hall by Sian Ann Bessey

William is a Baron who is not afraid to get his hands dirty taking care of his sheep. When an unknown person threatens them, he steps in to protect his sheep and find the culprit.

Charlotte has always loved animals, but has had little chance to express that love. She has always tried to maintain a lady-like appearance, but seems to get herself in one messy situation after another since her arrival.

Spring at Tribbley Hall had scheming relations and a couple perfect for each other. I loved all the animals in this sweet story. I also liked that William allowed Charlotte to make her own decisions even if he didn’t agree with them.

Love of My Heart by Sarah M. Eden

After being raised in England, Sebastian returns to Scotland after the death of his parents to be near his only relative, his grandfather the laird. His grandfather believes that one cannot be respected unless they have worked the land and earned the trust of the locals, so Sebastian becomes a home farmer.

Cordelia loves everything about London and dreams about having a real season. Instead, her family is forced to retrench due to financial issues.

This story makes me totally want to have a pet lamb. Shadow was adorable!

I really liked learning more about the home farmers and the céilidh’s.

Cordelia’s parents were awful. They clearly don’t care about their daughters, and they spend far outside their means. It is no wonder they had to retrench.

I really enjoyed this story.

Miss Smith Goes to Wiltshire by Rebecca Connolly

Martha has always wanted to marry for love. Her mother is appalled, and to punish her for her beliefs, she sends her to a cousin in the country so she can see what marrying for love will get you.

Benjamin has inherited an earldom, and the broken down estate that goes along with it. He cannot afford to hire anyone, so he must work the land himself.

Neither Benj or Martha is what one would expect the upper class to be. They have no problems fitting in with the rest of the locals.

Having lived in London her entire life, I love how wide eyed and excited Martha got about everything in the country.

I also loved the scene with the little piglets and the epilogue. This was a great story.
