Book review: of Bellevere House by Sarah Scheele

What would it be like to see Elizabeth Bennet in 1930’s clothes? What if Emma Woodhouse was the daughter of a car dealership owner? What if Marianne Dashwood was seeking to become a movie star in the golden age of film? The Vintage Jane Austen series  explores the world of Jane Austen, set in 1930’s America. Five authors took on Jane Austen’s five most popular novels and retold them set in the depression era, remaining faithful to the original plots. As an extra bonus to the series, there is a collection of short stories that were inspired by Jane Austen. Which of these books do you most want to read?

Bellevere House by Sarah Scheele (Mansfield Park): It’s March, 1937 and Faye Powell couldn’t be happier. After moving to live with her uncle, a wealthy banker, she’s fallen into the swing of life with his exuberant children–including Ed. The one she’ll never admit she’s in love with. But she hadn’t reckoned on the swanky Carters getting mixed up in that vow. Ed seems to be falling for charming, sweet Helene Carter. And when Faye’s cousin BeBe trusts her with a secret about Horace Carter, Faye is in over her head. Will she betray the confidence BeBe’s given her? Will she lose Ed to Helene? The days at Bellevere House are crowded with surprises and only time will tell how God plans to unravel Faye and Ed’s hearts.

Genre: Vintage Fiction.

My Rating: 4 Stars

Recommendation: 14 and up.

My favorite character is: Faye Powell who is living with her Uncle and his family, when her Uncle leaves on business everything becomes chaos, and to make it she is trying not to care more about a certain cousin.

My Verse for Faye is Proverbs 2:21 For the upright <span class="crossreference" data-cr="#cen-ESV-16455A" data-link="(A)” style=”box-sizing: border-box; font-family: “helvetica neue” , “verdana” , “helvetica” , “arial” , sans-serif; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; top: 0px; vertical-align: top;”>will inhabit the land, and those with integrity will remain in it,In the English Standard Version Bible (ESV)


Warning: Someone is  pregnant who is not married. And no details but two characters have a affair which leads to a divorce. The only time that it is talked about is when the man confesses to the woman’s husband.
