Book Review

The Best of Intentions by Susan Anne Mason


Grace Abernathy comes to Canada to be with her widowed sister and is shocked to find things are not as she’d thought them to be! She is a resourceful young lady and her journey to finding her way is rocky and keeps us turning the pages.

Andrew has his own rocky way to navigate and at times you want to smack him and other times you are cheering him on. The dance Grace and Andrew have in navigating their way through their place in society and their feelings for one another, keeps you guessing right up until the end. Will they figure things out? Is there hope?

Phwew! One of my favorite characters, besides the main characters, is Andrew’s sister, Virginia. I want to be her friend in real life!

The Best of Intentions is set in Toronto, Canada. I was especially thrilled to have a book set in my city and the history is so interesting. I look forward to book # 2 in the series:  The Highest of Hopes.

In the aftermath of WWI, Grace Abernathy is determined to reunite with her family, crossing an ocean to convince her widowed sister to return home to England. Yet Toronto holds more tragedy and her nephew Christian is now in the custody of his paternal relatives, the formidable Easton family, who rejected Grace’s sister because of her low social status.

Unconvinced the Eastons can be fitting caretakers, Grace jumps at the chance to be Christian’s nanny and observe the family up close under an assumed name. In the course of her new position, she is shocked to discover herself falling for Andrew Easton, the boy’s guardian. Unfortunately, Andrew is promised to a spoiled socialite who will make a terrible stepmother for Christian. Will Grace be able to protect her nephew . . . and her heart?
