 *The Author Visits received a copy of Hohenstein in exchange for a fair review.

Not an ardent fan of the historical genre, I was pleasantly surprised by how entertaining the story of the Baroness Marie-Louise was and how quickly I became engrossed with her character.

The Baroness is a young, willful and righteous woman determined to restore her family's home with little in the way of resources to aid her quest.

Bound by her father's last will, her desire to bring back the loveliness of a home so closely tied to her memories of her parents turns into a most difficult challenge. Marie-Louise seeks every imaginable course to protect her home but even her best intentions are marred by obstacles.

Enter the Count Ulrich Wolfburg. A childhood friend, the Count now manages his father's business that oversees the Baroness' interests and although he has the means to help Marie-Louise, her father's will is finite in its conditions and his hands are tied.

Marie-Louise is desperate for the means to save her home and the remainder of the story details the course of her story both in the matters of her legacy and her heart.

The Baroness is a rebel. She tries hard to respectfully defy the expectations demanded of her including her stern Tante Ambrosia. Her station affords her little opportunity to embrace "normal" and she truly wants nothing more than to shed the shackles of her place in society. I reveled in her determination as she tries so hard to protect her home, often shocking those around her by taking up mundane tasks herself in order to reinstate the glory of her childhood home.

Didi Lawson has an ease with penning words to paper. The story is fluid, capturing the essence of a period through dialogue, offering a vivid glimpse to a faraway time and place.

An engaging story with a handful of charming characters, Hohenstein is a promising read.

My rating - a solid 4 stars for a pleasantly surprising effort.
