BLOG TOUR w/ GIVEAWAY: The Roses of Feldstone by Esther Hatch


Standing before Feldstone Manor, site of so many happy memories, Rose Davenport feels nothing but dread. Her family's annual visit to the stately home was once brightened by her friendship with the earl's youngest son, William, but everything changed the day his elder brother was disinherited and William became heir to his father's earldom. From that moment, William made it clear he has no interest in continuing an acquaintance with Rose. Heartbroken, she sets out to prove that she will simply not be ignored—or outdone—by the arrogant future lord of the manor.

When his elder brother marries for love, William's entire life changes in an instant. He does not have the same option to marry whom he chooses, and he must let go of the feelings he has harbored for his dear friend Rose. He steels himself against her annual visits, determined to keep his feelings for her a secret. But when he makes the hasty promise to marry within six months, he never dreams that his actions will lead Rose to impulsively undertake the same challenge.


I'll say right out that I loved this story so much that I read it all in one sitting.  I had to find out what happened between Rose and William.  Rose's spirit and determination made her easy to root for.  And while the story is told from Rose's point of view, it's clear that something is very wrong with William and so I felt empathy for him too.  My favorite parts though were their interactions.  It's clear that they care for each other but some pretty big misunderstandings stand in the way.   I truly loved the ending as it made me smile the whole way through as Rose and William attempt one final time to settle their differences/misunderstandings.  Hatch has written an entertaining and enjoyable book, one that I can highly recommend.
