Summer Reading: She Walks in Beauty

She Walks in BeautyShe Walks In Beauty by Siri Mitchell 
She’s loved by all... and known by no one.

Clara Carter is a 17 year-old girl, unwillingly thrust into the role of social debutant a year earlier than expected.  Her Aunt and Father have made it very clear that she must win the hand of the most eligible bachelor this season in order to regain the family's honor.  Feeling that she has no other choice, Clara suffers through an endless season of calling on acquaintances, attending balls, and making polite conversation that goes no deeper than the weather or the latest fashion.  Clara holds her tongue, does as she's expected to do... and then finds out that everything she has grown up believing about her family is a lie.

This was another quick read with an easily predictable ending.  All of the problems were neatly tied up in the last chapter... a little too neat & quick for my taste, actually.   I felt like I had spent the entire book learning about every event in great detail-- right down to the color of trim on a ball gown-- and then, wham, several people's lives are suddenly wrapped up in a space of just a few paragraphs.

My copy of this book was provided by Bethany House Publishers in return for my honest review.
