Carolyn Miller’s Regency series are some of my favorites. And with The Making of Mrs Hale, these books are elevated to an entirely new level.
About the Book
Julia Hale ran off to be married in Gretna Green, following romance instead of common sense. But her tale isn’t turning into a happily ever after. Her new husband is gone and she doesn’t know where–or if he’s ever coming back. Julia has no option but to head home to the family she betrayed by eloping and to hope they’ll forgive her. Especially now that she might be carrying a baby from her brief marriage.
Carolyn Miller’s clean and wholesome Regency romances continue with The Making of Mrs. Hale, following familiar characters as they learn how restoration can occur by finding hope and healing through a deep relationship with God. Full of rich historical details and witty banter, this series continues to draw in fans of Jane Austen, Sarah Ladd, and Julie Klassen.

In My Opinion
Major Thomas Hale and Julia Carlew shirked social conventions when they ran away and wed in Gretna Green, but their happily ever after is quickly crushed by reality. Julia hasn’t heard from her husband in more than six months, and Thomas questions whether his wife has waited for him.
As the story unfolds, readers quickly find there is something nefarious surrounding Thomas. And Julia struggles to find her voice now that she’s back under the care of her mother and brother, who make no secret of their opinions of Thomas.
Mistakes are made, each party is wronged in a way, but with the wisdom and guidance of a few familiar friends, can Thomas and Julia learn how forgiving blesses both he person wronged and the one who committed the offense?
Miller once again brings to life this time period, this time giving us a glimpse of both the titled ton and those who scrape together their living.
