OMG major fan girling alert Swooning Self fanning Twirling Giggling AAAAHHHHHHHHH How on earth does Ms Donaldson contrive to make Philip that perfect I mean, HOW He such a perfect embodiment of a Regency era dream that it is impossible to settle for anything else I am ready to marry him any day That s all I have to say That, and also the fact that I think it grossly unfair of Ms Donaldson to tease us with such a perfect, much too short prequel Even I, a reputed slow reader, was able to finish in [...]
Okay, now I just want Ms Donaldson to write an entire book from Philips point of view It was so fun stepping into his shoes and seeing things from his perspective I want MORE I of course loved seeing his POV when meeting Marianne for the first time Now, I guess I ll have to go read Edenbrooke again Fun short story that any fan of Edenbrooke will love
Un saca cuartos Eso es lo que me ha parecido Una desilusi nEl relato es simp tico pero para el precio que vale son apenas 54 p ginas en las que se repite una de las escenas del principio de la novela pero vistas desde la perspectiva de Phillip, pero que pierde la parte de la gracia porque ya la conocemos.Apenas las 15 primeras p ginas son nuevas y nos muestran algunas de las razonees del porqu del comportamiento de Phillip en los primeros cap tulos.El resto un corta pegaA no ser que teng is real [...]
Dear Phillip,I wasn t sure you were worth 3.99 what, with only a little over 50 pages to your name A high price to pay in my mind, but, financially sound or no, it was an easy decision I have never been able to resist you, and now to finally get your own thoughts Yespleaseandthankyou It made this romantic s heart happy just to realize how much of a gentleman you are, outside and in I ve missed you fondly,Danielle Love at First Page.P.S For interested readers we do get scenes between Phillip and [...]
I absolutely adore Edenbrooke, and to have a novella from the hero s perspective is a dream come true I loved the insights it gives into Phillip s life before he meets Marianne, and it helped me understand him and his actions in Edenbrooke Of course I wish there was of him and Marianne together from his point of view, but I think it s pretty perfect for what it is My imagination can fill in the rest
I should have read this before I reread Edenbrooke I would have been able to read Philip with much depth and understanding and Edenbrooke would have been a stronger read because of it Either way, if you enjoyed Edenbrooke, I would definitely recommend splurging and buying this short novella.
AMOR de relato En serio Me he quedado con unas ganas locas de m s Es demasiado corto Philip me tiene loca, y casi me dan ganas de releer Edenbrooke de nuevo.Para quienes no tengan el libro en papel todav a, est is de suerte La editorial va a reeditarlo e incluir este relato corto desde el POV de Philip dentro del libro No es m s que la historia previa al comienzo de Edenbrooke desde la perspectiva de Philip y c mo conoce a Marianne Para quienes ya tienen el libro en papel, como una servidora, es [...]
Quer a m s de mi amado Philip.
En esta precuela, Philip Wyndham uno de los protagonistas nos narra en primera persona momentos anteriores a conocer a Marianne y una de las primeras escenas con la joven.Este relato corto nos dejar con la miel en la boca puesto que se acaba en la escena de la posada pero es interesante porque nos deja conocer a Philip tanto en lo que concierne a sus sentimientos por Marianne como la relaci n con sus dos hermanos, en especial con Charles con el cual no se llevaba muy bien.Adem s tambi n nos reve [...]
Update 4.45 stars A trap closed around my heart, and in that moment, I was helpless Whether she loved me for my money or myself, whether she loved me at all, whether her heart was even available for the winning none of it mattered I was smitten to the core All fans of Edenbrooke will love this The writing, I thought, felt a little rushed why it didn t quite make five stars , but still painted a perfect picture of how Philip s mind worked I loved being in his brain and seeing Marianne through hi [...]
I devoured Edenbrooke years ago and couldn t wait to get my hands on this little gem of a novella to get a glimpse into Philip s head I wasn t disappointed Of course, I wish it was longer, but I enjoyed every minute of it and now I really want to re read Edenbrooke.I believe there are always two sides to a story and learning the background to Philip s life really helped me understand why he does some of the things he does I found things to be humorous at times, but I also felt an undercurrent of [...]
The biggest problem I had with this novelette was that it was WAY TOO SHORT I want Greedy Maybe But now that I ve had a taste of Philip s side of things, I want it all This novelette gives some insight into Phillip s life and how he came to be the heir to Edenbrooke and takes us up through his first meeting with Marianne I loved it Love, love, loved it.BUT I want I want the whole Edenbrooke story told from Philip s point of view This little story filled me with longing to read Edenbrooke again [...]
This is a solid 5 star book that I loved every second I spent reading It s short a novelette, just as it claims to be , but so very, very well thought out It brings a whole new dimension to Edenbrook, and reinforces my opinion that Philip ties with only one other for the greatest male lead character in a book ever He s just so human and relatable I love seeing Marianne through his eyes And I can t wait to re read Edenbrook for the fifteenth time with this new perspective Bravo Julianne Donaldson [...]
First of all, 3.99 for a 53 page novella is highway robbery But anywayRating this for what it is, a companion novella to Edenbrooke, not to be read as a standalone, it was really good It added some additional backstory to Philip and allowed us to see into his motivations It ends after Philip and Marianne s first interaction at the inn.
En realidad 4,5 Me gust conocer los pensamientos de Philip, como era antes de conocer a Mariane y sobre todo saber que sinti cuando la vio por primera vez Como se empez a enamorar de ella Lo nico malo es demasiado corto Me habr a encantado un libro entero desde el punto de vista de Philip.
Fun to see things from Philip s perspective It s been nearly 3 years since I read Edenbrooke but as soon as I finished this novella I started a reread of Edenbrooke.Content Clean
ha estado bien, es el POV de Philip hasta el momento en que se marcha de la posada.Gracias a esta novela entiendes un poco su border a del principio.
Finally caved and bought this overpriced 50 page book But I did really enjoy it In fact I liked it so much I am going to adjust my review rating for the main book it prequels Even though this is a prequel, I doubt it is meant to be read that way I found it worked well as a kind of epilogue to the main book Edenbrooke.This book starts several years before Philip and Marianne meet It sets the background on Philip s frame of mind and character Just why he was such an ass when they first met Then it [...]
I was so excited to read this novella but I have to say, it was way too short How can anyone get enough of Phillip Wyndham I know I can t Once you read this novella you ll want to re read Edenbrooke.I wasn t sure I liked the writing style in the first chapter but then it improved and took on the same flow as Edenbrooke I loved taking a peek into Phillip s mind and reading his point of view when he met Marianne Daventry for the first time at the Inn Unfortunately, THE END came too soon More of Ph [...]
Me encanta como escribe esta mujer Me he quedado con ganas de m s Sin duda esta peque a visi n de los hechos por parte de Philip es interesante Pero a penas nos cuenta nada nuevo y se termina en lo m s interesante.
This was a cute little prequel to Edenbrooke It was fun to get into Phillip s head a little and see Mariann from his POV.
I had been looking forward to reading this since I heard it was going to be released Julianne is an amazing author, and I was excited for even a small glimpse back to Edenbrooke I enjoyed getting to know the man that Phillip was before he met Marianne and what he had to put up with beforehand was frustrating I loved the scene at the ball, I was laughing to myself at the mis steps of the young ladies I really appreciated seeing Marianne through his eyes, and the realization Phillip comes to when [...]
I m soooo mad My review of this book got deleted What kind of atrocity is this Sigh Anyway, let s get on with rewriting then.I have been wanting to read this book for waaaay to long It was actually ridiculous.But I did acquire it and whether I squealed and or twirled upon receiving this ebook can be neither confirmed nor denied.Well, I actually did neither of those things, but my heart did Be still my heart.It Was Perfect Philip was perfect That is all blushes fiercely I hope you know, Philip, y [...]
Como todo lo que escribe Julianne , es una peque a maravilla peque a por que es un relato corto y me hubiera encantado saber mas de sus pensamientos a lo largo de su historia con Marianne asi da gusto leer libros si os gustaron Edenbrooke y blackmoore no podeis perderos este relato corto
What an enjoyable novella I most definitely will read Edenbrooke very soon
aaaaaah I would love Edenbrooke in its entirety in his point of view That would be so interesting This was great I can t wait until she writes .I have loved everything
Read this after reading Edenbrooke in a way I was glad I did so that I didn t know Philip s true feelings and could go through Marianne s journey with her in Edenbrooke into love This book was a very short read that made me want I wanted it to continue to be Edenbrooke from Philip s point of view Perhaps we could convince the author to continue to write it This book gave us a good basis for Philip s character when Marianne first meets him at the Rose Crown in the book Edenbrooke Thoroughly enjo [...]
More of a 2.5, really It wasn t bad, just pointless This is the very beginning of the story told in Edenbrooke from the hero, Philip s, first person POV We find out a little about his youth, a tiny bit about his service during the Peninsular Wars, and are with him to see what he was doing and thinking in the weeks before he encounters the heroine, Marianne.The problem is, we ve already surmised a lot of this from reading the first book, and this prequel doesn t tell us much we didn t know It did [...]
I loved this short prequel novella Warning If you haven t already read Edenbrooke, then have it ready to read because this prequel novella stops shortly after Philip and Marianne meet, and doesn t tell the entire story.I loved hearing it from Philip s point of view I loved learning a little about him and seeing how and why he was so charmed when he met her I thought the dairymaid story was even funnier from his point of view Content Very CleanSource
I love everything about Edenbrooke and this short novella did not disappoint I love reading Philip s POV of his life before he met Marianne and his thoughts as he was meeting her for the first time I would even read his POV during the events of Edenbrooke if the author wrote it that s how much I love Edenbrooke What a nice treat to read thank you, Julianne Donaldson, for giving us of Philip and Edenbrooke.
