Talk about The Banishment (Daughters of Mannerling, Book 1)

When I want a quick, fun read, I like to pick up one of M.C. Beaton's Regency Romances. I can usually blow through one of these in a couple of nights and find them quite entertaining. I thought the Daughters of Mannerling series looked interesting, so I downloaded this first book and was instantly drawn into the story of proud, beautiful Isabella Beverley whose family loses everything when her profligate father gambles away the family fortune and home. This is a terrible blow to Isabella and her sisters who have lived lives of luxury and excess up until this point. Not only do they have to downsize to a small country cottage, but they lose their social standing in the community.

Isabella becomes obsessed with getting back the family home, which means a great deal to her. So much in fact that she's willing to encourage the attentions of the new owner of Mannerling, the odious Mr. Judd. I really can't say enough bad things about Mr. Judd. He is so repulsive in manner and looks that my skin crawled every time he appeared on the page! In contrast, Isabella's other suitor, Lord Fitzpatrick, whom she meets at the beginning of the story, but quickly disregards as anything more than a friend because he's (GASP) Irish, is a total dreamboat. I enjoyed seeing the development of Isabella's relationship with Fitzpatrick (He proves himself to be a true friend over and over again.) and I liked that despite his feelings for her, Fitzpatrick was not a pushover.

There was a good character arc for Isabella in this book, and it was nice to see her adapt to her straitened circumstances and become a better person through her trials. On the other hand, her sisters and parents just seemed to get more awful as the story progressed, so I had to knock off a star from my rating because of that. I just found it hard to believe that all of Isabella's sisters were so desperate to regain their wealth that they were pushing Isabella to marry a man who was clearly a horrible human being. And the youngest of the daughters did something toward the end of the book that I think was supposed to paint her in a tragic/sympathetic light, but it just made me think she was off her rocker!

I believe that the rest of the books in this series will each focus on a different sister, so I will continue to read to see if Beaton is able to redeem any of the younger Beverleys.
I recently came across this book on the author's Facebook page. Am I glad I did.

The writing is genuine English historical. I was glad to have the ability to instantly look up words on my Kindle. I normally do not read romance novels and usually am turned off by the gratuitous sex and giddy language. Non of that appears in this book. Maybe this is a reason to read more English authors.

The story is well laid out and rings true. I felt like "a fly on the wall" during the whole book. Ms Beaton talked about women's clothes a lot which added to my enjoyment . I liked Isabella and Mary Kennedy and Barry . There were many characters to dislike with good reason.

I will not bore you with a book report. Just know this is a well balanced tale. It is part of a six book series but I did not know this until I got past the end of the book. This book can stand on it's own and if you never read any further you would have all the information you need to appreciate the story. However you might want to move on into the series and see what happens.

Not up to the usual light-hearted story. This is a disappointment. The heroine eventually becomes likeable but it does take awhile.

The basis of the book is the unhealthy fascination the Beverly family has for their home. It is beautiful and elegant beyond description, and it inspires a sickness for the place. All the daughters are beauties and had been raised to marry well, but they weren't taught to behave in a good and kindly manner. They took no notice of their staff and thought any attention given to them by neighbors was only their due.

The father had gambled away their home and they are forced leave but it is their dream to return. The heroine is urged to try to attract the new owner. She practices flirting with another neighbor, but he is Irish and not considered an eligible match.

The hero sees the irrational desire the heroine's family has for their old home and is disgusted with the lengths they will go to get it back.

The heroine does come to her senses and realizes who is important to her. However there are four other daughters . . .

I found the story a bit depressing, and there certainly wasn't enough romance for my taste.
The Banishment is the story of the Beverly sisters who live a charmed life with their parents in their family home, Mannerling. The eldest, Isabella, has just returned from her first London season unmarried and unhappy. Their family's ancient lineage and fabulous wealth all but guaranteed her a successful season and a fabulous husband. She was expected to return married and her five younger sisters are shaken by her failure. The Beverlys lives will be upended when it is revealed their father has lost their home and most of their possessions. Thus begin a number of schemes to marry off the dowry-less daughters and reclaim Mannerling. The reaction of individual family members to their plight and their inability to face reality is fascinating and tragic.

I look forward to the remaining books in the series.
This story gave me shivers. Shades of Rose Red. And yet, a compelling Regency set in the country. I loved the Viscount, such a wonderful hero. He was a bit of an ass toward the middle but he made up for it in the end. It was a strange story of a family who lost their beloved home and their subsequent efforts to get it back. This was the story of the eldest daughter, with the other five to have books of their own. It reminds me strongly of Pride and Prejudice although the heroine is more like Jane than Elizabeth and the Viscount has more personality than Darcy. A solid story. I look forward to reading the rest. Highly recommended for all Regency Romance lovers.
