Winning Miss Winthrop (Regency Brides: A Promise of Hope #1) Reviews
Since reading Ms. Miller's first book, what has struck me as refreshing is her characters' integrity. They are never portrayed as perfect or unapproachable, but there is a noble air to them which is very much appreciated. It also, many times, sets the pace of the plot as the characters try to remain steadfast through a time period stained by unruly tongues and a judgemental society.
I saw this integrity portrayed once again in Jonathan Carlew as he sought to wisely fulfill an unexpected inherited ...more
Exquisite! Carolyn Miller's beautiful prose conveys her readers to the world of Regency England filled with rich historical detail and charm. As a fan of all things pertaining to Jane Austen, I was thrilled when I read Miller's debut novel. Oh, to have beautiful stories in the grand tradition of one of my favorite authors, yet to include a strong faith element as well immediately brought Ms. Miller to my favorites list.

Winning Miss Winthrop by Carolyn Miller is the first in the Regency Brides Series A Promise of Hope. Catherine Winthrop is our heroine and Jonathan Carlew is our hero. They loved each other in the past and the story is how they relearn to love each other in the present.
I loved this book. It had a great flow, I enjoyed reading it and the pace to me was perfect. I felt I was in Bath,England and was attending the events with the characters.
To me this story reminded me of Persuasion by Jane Austen ...more
Every book by this author hits just the right note. They fit so nicely into the Regency time period without ever feeling that they are modern characters placed into a historical setting. In fact, the basis of the story wouldn't have happened in current times. I am not generally a fan of plots using mistaken ideas to keep people apart, but it did work well in this case. Both Catherine Winthrop and Jonathan Carlew are humble, sweet characters that handle grief and disappointment in totally differe ...more
Travel back in time to the Regency Era where Miss Winthrop’s Story is brought to life by the skilled penmanship of Carolyn Miller. Visit Gloucestershire and Bath where the sights and sounds are brought to life and you can envision the Balls. This is a page turner that has you identifying with Catherine and Jonathan and hoping a long ago misunderstanding can be made to rights. I love how Catherine holds to her integrity and faith throughout the difficulties she encounters. This is a difficult tim ...more
I don't know if Carolyn Miller is becoming a better writer or if I'm just becoming more appreciative of her writing style. (I suspect it's a mix of the two.) Whatever is happening, though, I find that I love each of Miller's novels more than the last, and Winning Miss Winthrop, the first in her new "A Promise of Hope" series, is one of the best books I've read so far this year!
Fans of Jane Austen's novels will love this latest regency novel from Carolyn Miller. Winning Miss Winthrop has shades o ...more
I have loved all of Carolyn Miller’s books and this one was no exception. I was captivated from the very start. My heart was carried along with Catherine’s as she struggled to let go of the past, find peace in God, and accept all He had for her. I loved that the hero, Jonathan, was so realistic. I appreciated that he was a man of character who tried to live up to God’s standards, but that he also came to realise that on his own he simply couldn’t do it and needed God to intervene and rescue him ...more
