A Most Noble Heir

Title:  A Most Noble Heir (A Novel)
Author:  Susan Anne Mason
Pages:  368
Year:  2018
Publisher:  Bethany
My rating is 5+ out of 5 stars.
Have you ever read a book where you felt you knew how it was going to end, but read on because how it would happen really captured the imagination?  Well, for me, this book did just that!  What really cemented the book as a treasure to me was reading the letter to readers by the author after finishing the tale.  The story is set in England in the late 1800s where a young stable hand named Nolan Price is about to have his life turned about by the unexpected!
Another main character is Hannah who works in the kitchen and has been in love with Nolan since they were both 14 years of age.  However, relationships between house staff were not encouraged.  In fact, both Nolan and Hannah could have lost their positions had they been found together.  What begins to turn Nolan’s world upside down is the secret his mother reveals to him and the Earl of Stainsby before her last breath.
The long-withheld truth sends both Nolan and the Earl on a path that will either forge them to become better men or tear their hearts out even more than life has already done.  These two men aren’t the only two who are impacted by the secret being revealed, but Hannah and a host of others readers will meet as they turn the pages of the novel long into the night.
I really was easily captured by the story as it reveals the heart of Nolan, Hannah and the Earl along with some unique background players.  Each time I started reading I couldn’t wait to find out how the action, adventure, intrigue, and the highly climactic ending were going to play out.  Susan Mason writes from the heart that includes her knowledge gained as she researched a time that revealed aspects of life of that era.
I hope readers will take advantage of reading a romantic novel with threads of faith, hope and perseverance.  Consider sharing the book with family or friends, or tell them about it so they can get a copy for their own personal library.

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
