The Duke of Jervaulx was brilliant and dangerous. Considered dissolute, reckless, and extravagant, he was transparently referred to as the ′D of J′ in scandal. It’s Laura Kinsale at the top of her game – or anybody else’s, for that matter. I read Flowers From the Storm 4 times and each time was as heart wrenching as. flowers from the storm Oh yeah, and I read Laura Kinsale’s Flowers from the Storm and never looked at linguistics, illness, communication.

A yellow tabby tumbled free. And I read the meeting house scene very, very slowly thanks to some of the comments here. I have vague memories of a very taciturn, somewhat stern grandfather from when I was very little.

Keira Soleore March 17, at Loved her blind father, John Timms. Whenever someone tells me that romance novels are just trash, or just fluff, or whatever, I tell them to read Flowers from the Storm.

She sucked in a quick breath as pins burrowed into her forehead and the kitten on top tried to scamper down her nose. A midnight ride with an outlaw prince, and life, and life, and life.

These characters have to suffer a great deal before they get to the end – and Laura Kinsale will ensure you suffer right along with them. October 13, Imprint: View all 23 comments.


I never deserved you, did I? His companion to be is the sheltered Archimedea Maddy Timmsa quiet Quaker daughter of an older blind mathematician. I have always been interested in stories of medicine, illness, and messy, unconventional love, and oh how Flowers from the Storm delivers. Passion and love, I began to think, were possible for me.

So she gave all that up to sit in a chair and stare into space for long periods of time, attempting to figure out What-Happens-Next. My review is a cheesy, rambling, hot mess, so read at your own risk. About the audiobook… Because of the premise of this story and the debilitating disease that Christian suffers from, for a lot of this book, I felt like I was suffocating. If you asked me if I want more from her, obviously yes! The readers who likes historical romance novels will really love it.

In fact I must say that I come to Christian and Maddy at least once a year. It seems to be rather like trying to teach a cat to bark. In addition to living with a religious… enthusiastfor lack of a better word, I have this fear of something fpowers to me that will leave me unable to communicate with those around me. In fact, I disagree so much with the official precepts of the Catholic Church that I finally decided that I can’t call myself Catholic any more.

I have a much better personal flower of Quaker life lauea Im grateful. Thank you thank you thank you!! It is truly beautiful. That process was understandably devastating to a man who was one of the most powerful men in England. I tue to finish in a day.

Flowers from the Storm by Laura Kinsale – FictionDB

I love your work, Laura. I have found your web accidentally, and I did not want to spend the opportunity to write to you. I absolutely love it.

What a great return visit to one of my favorite all time authors. On Friday evenings I would leave my world of being mother, wife and career woman flowefs drift away to a different time and place.

I’ve never in my life wanted to give someone a big reassuring hug so much in my life, since no in the book was kijsale to do it for me–and never did.

Flowers from the Storm

The one atop her head stayed put, but cried and cried, digging in claws that tickled painfully. Every one of my favorite romances has character development. There are quite a few lighter moments in a fairly intense book. I remember exactly where I was in kunsale airport when I flowrrs the book and how stunned and compelled I was by the depth of the characters and the language. Chaste Quaker Maddy Timms would rather have nothing at all to do with the immoral, “creaturely” Jervaulx, but she’s forced to tolerate him thanks to the fact that he’s co-authoring a mathematical paper with her father.

Failing the Bechtel test, alas.

This is the first book I’ve read by this author, and I will definitely search out more. If a historical romance can win over a man… wow. This is not, by any kinwale, an average romance book.
