    1. 3.5 stars. It is a regency telling of Ruth. It was really clean. I wish there had been a really good kiss at the end (there is a kiss but I just wanted a little more). :) I hope this author comes out with more books.


    2. No time to create a deserving review at this time but just to say this is one of the best regency romances I have ever read. A MUST-READ


    3. A Life Revealed ~ The Widow's RedeemerMonday, December 3, 2012The Widow's Redeemer by Phillippa Jane Keyworth, ©2013Ruth 1:16-17King James Version (KJV)16 And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:17 Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.I [...]


    4. A loose reinterpretation of the story of Ruth. Due to obvious reasons, the story of Ruth is one of my favourite bible stories, and I'ld wanted to read this, because, story of Ruth? Regency? Yes please! I was a little disappointed, but I still enjoyed it, and am very glad I read it, and I'll even say this to anyone reading my review, this book is at least worth one read. Some random thoughts. May or may not contain spoilers.Due to spoilers I'ld accidentally seen, I knew she did not end up with Ma [...]


    5. This book has all the elements of a classic romance, however failed to really grab my undivided attention. The beginning was somewhat slow and predictable, eventually leading to where the story really begins - after the death of Letty Burton's husband.Though generally well written, the constant 'head-hopping' was most distracting, as this took away much of the impact of what a character was thinking or feeling.The attention to detail was of high standard, though felt at times a bit overdone and [...]


    6. You will fall in love with the character of Lettice, Letty, May Burton. She has been through a terrible time, her husband John was verbally and physically abusive to her. When he dies from a fall and fever, he was out at the London Gambling Halls.Letty soon finds herself without home, and when an invite from her dead husband's brother's wife invites her to come and keep her company. She decides to do sod fate intervened with a chance meeting, of she perceives a Rake! She also ends up with her Mo [...]


    7. I was hoping for Letty to end up with the Major, and I was disappointed when all of the story pointed toward her ending up with the Viscount. The pairing was a bit confusing for me. The Viscount was shown to be a violent man in a few situations, very moody and prone to all sorts of "violent passions." I'm afraid that poor Letty picked the same kind of man as before. Deveril, on the other hand, cared for her and protected her, much more in the way that Boaz did in the story of Ruth. I also dislik [...]


    8. This is the second novel I’ve read by Philippa Jane Keyworth and it has already become a fast favourite. It is such a charming and endearing novel with all the right ingredients necessary for a Regency romance. Letty Burton, a young girl from humble beginnings marries well but is grossly mistreated by her abusive husband who dies before writing his will. This leaves Letty, alone and penniless, to find her own way in the world. Before she knows it, she is accompanying her mother-in-law Clarissa [...]


    9. This is a sweet regency book loosely based on the Biblical story of Ruth. I enjoyed Letty's kindness and her desire for independence and I felt sorry for her because of the abuse she had suffered. I had a hard time believing that the Viscount didn't mind Letty's low social status and I also didn't fully understand his reasons for falling in love with her. It was generally well written and I liked the parallels to Ruth's story.




    10. I’ve read a fair few Regencies in the past couple of years, and I would rank this amongst one of my favourites. The notion of a retelling of the Book of Ruth set in the Regency period was clever and generally well done, with a realistic and accurate historical setting, and a stock of well-drawn characters. Letty /Lettice(which I imagine was short for Letitia), a hurting woman whose abusive marriage destroyed her belief in love struggling to survive in society. Major Deverill, the dashing and h [...]


    11. I was provided a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. I went into this book not really knowing what to expect. All I knew was that it was a historical fiction novel set in Regency London. I'm actually really glad I didn't know more, or my prejudices would have stopped me from reading it! See, I usually avoid stories about women with abusive husbands--especially if it's about how the husband passed away and the woman has to pick up the pieces. The reason I avoid these [...]


    12. I didn't do a ton of research before reading this book. Most of the way through, a lot of the details seemed a bit forced. They just didn't fit together properly. The biggest thing that made me scratch my head was Lettice's relationship with her parents and their standing in the world. Did her parents refuse to see her again after the (unexplained and mysterious) compromising situation she was found in with her husband? Why exactly would her husband's family feel the need to retreat from society [...]


    13. I didn't know what to expect when I started reading this novel, and I was pleasantly surprised when it was so captivating and I loved it! This was a well-written Regency romance that fans of Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer are sure to enjoy.Letty Burton becomes a widow left with her husband's debts resulting in her loss of home and assets. She becomes the companion of her mother-in-law in London and is introduced to London Society, catching the eye of an arrogant bachelor. She is not impressed w [...]


    14. I received this book from a First Reads giveaway from Madison Street Publishing, thank you!This is such a charming little story about romance in the early 19th century. It reminded me, at times, a bit of Pride and Prejudice.Lettice Burton's husband dies early in their marriage, leaving the young woman a widow very early. On top of this, she finds out her husband has left her quite a large debt which forces her to sell their farm leaving her homeless and penniless. Her mother-in-law decides it be [...]


    15. This is the best book I've read this year. With subtle undertones of Pride & Prejudice among a fabulous and imaginative retelling of the story of Ruth and Boaz from Scripture, this book totally rocks! Oh, there's some variation since it's a fictional account but if you're familiar with the Bible story at all, you'll recognize it quickly. I was totally and completely immersed in this story until I tapped the last page on my Kindle. Rarely has that happened with an e-book for me but I didn't h [...]


    16. I really liked this book it was fun seeing the story of Ruth unfold in a regency setting. I liked the characters, I liked the setting, I liked the story. There were only two things I did not like. The viewpoint switches were strange as they happened hilly nillyl over the place. The conclusion was less awesome than it could have been because instead of just showing us the romance there was a bit of sermonizing about the journey that led to the happy conclusion and how everything was going to be a [...]


    17. This is what the Book of Ruth would have been like if it were written by Jane Austen, in her most skillful manner. I found this version of Ruth set in Regency England to be an utterly delightful novel. The story and characters were well-developed and sympathetic, the dialogue natural and witty, and the way the damage done to the two main protagonists expressed itself in their character and behavior was developed in a realistic and believable manner. This little literary confection was one sweet [...]


    18. This Regency romance is head and shoulders above most others in the quality of the period detail and understanding of the social customs. Having said that, the story starts well (some good sparky dialogue between hero & heroine) but peters out about half way through. There are some questionable assumptions - is a widow really responsible for her husband's debts if his whole estate has been sold up already to pay his creditors? The main issue is that the focus isn't sufficiently on the H & [...]


    19. This was an interesting book that reminded me of those regencies that were actually written during the regency time period. A meticulous and drawn-out story brings you slowly through the many events and turmoils of the main characters. Letty is a dear character who is strong and independent. The story was interesting and kept a good pace. The romance was sweet and left you satisfied overall. I felt that it missed out of a little bit of potential, but it was still a good read.


    20. Very clean regency romance with no religion. I must say I really liked this one. It was a little wordy but it added more for me and I found myself liking it. The only part that bugged a little was we didn't get to meet the main man till a little into the book and he was hard to fit into a mold. But you understand why at the end. The main character was much kinder and more patient than I could ever be and I am glad she got the best of everything in the end. Very sweet story:}


    21. This is a perfect example of a "Love Inspired Historical" type book (it isn't one). The h faces a terrible trial, the H is always misunderstood and often an un-repentant rogue, and the h has an amazing faith in God. This is a very clean book. There is some witty repartee between the H and h that is very entertaining. Our heroine Letty is indomitable!


    22. A entertaining regency romance that is a blend of Ruth's biblical story and Pride and Prejudice. Believable predicaments and characters with faults make this novel a refreshing read. I read this book quickly and loved Keyworth's quality writing. I highly recommend to those who prefer their romance without the erotic passages.


    23. 4.5/5.0Although starting out a bit slow, “The Widow’s Redeemer” picks up speed about a quarter of the way through. Read full review in the 2012 Holiday issue of InD’tale Magazine.





    24. Absolutely loved it!!! I have been waiting for ages for another bible story adaptation like redeeming love, and this was definitely it. Just wish it didn't have to end!
