Great! I loved the Admiral and Sophia . You'll laugh and you will cry.
Penniless Worth Every Penny!
A warm and wonderful rags to riches love story very much in Ms. Kelly's trademarked, insightful style. All of her books are well worth reading as she captures the plight of the ordinary as well as the wealthy in the England of yore. You will not regret purchasing her works!
The Admiral's Penniless Bride
I enjoy Carla Kelly's excellent humor but this book toyed wonderfully between my laughs and tears. Good book Ms. Kelly.
