Manor of Secrets by Katherine Longshore

For anyone who is a fan of Downtown Abbey or is just a fan of the Edwardian era, this is a delightful YA book. I personally found this book to be enjoyable and sweet, I was glad that it was YA appropriate without a bunch of junk or drama in it.
Lady Charlotte Edmonds feels neglected and bored,as the only daughter of a wealthy family she is expected to marry well, but the young man her Mother is pushing at her seems stuffy and boring. What Lady Charlotte longs for is adventure and romance, but will she be brave enough to embrace the opportunities that are thrown at her?
Janie Seward is a practical, hardworking servant who is afraid of change. When it looks like her Mother might leave her to work elsewhere Janie is afraid what other changes might come to pass.
When a long lost relative of Lady Charlotte's shows up, things around the manor are about to change and as Lady Charlotte and Janie befriend each other the find that they have more in common than they ever though possible.

I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good historical YA read that has interesting characters, a good plot and is clean.
