Lilly Blossoms by Maggie Ryan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This the story of Lilly. Life has been hard on her but she is a fighter and a surviver. She is capable of taking care of herself and has made a life after a fashion for herself. In trying to help her Miss Summers who runs the special finishing school made things more difficult. But Lilly has adapted.
I love that when Miss Summers realizes what has happened she finds a way to make up for it without doing anything to hurt Lilly's pride or to force her into make choices she might not understand.
We see that Lilly is smart but curious and that curiosity is what brings her to Lord Carrington's attention. Again I am impressed in how he doesn't try to make Lilly feel dependent or less because of their different stations in life. And while he takes steps to make sure she is safe he still gives her space and doesn't invade her privacy. When Phillip senses Lilly's fears or something that might have the potential to upset her he does the best to reassure her and to make sure she is comfortable. He also listens and is willing to admit the things he doesn't know. And when he gives a gift you can tell that his heart was involved because it the best and most perfect gift.
This story makes you feel good about they way things turn out and how special both the main characters are.
