REVIEW: Anne's Adversity By Jennifer Joy

Book Two of the Cousins Series

Book Blurb: When Anne de Bourgh discovers a family secret in an old letter, she is given two choices: Burn the letter and forget about it or leave Rosings and face disinheritance. How can a sickly lady past the bloom of youth, with no prospects and few friends, hope to stand on her own two feet? How can she learn more about her family’s past without causing a scandal which would forever cast a shadow over the de Bourghs?
    Luc Mauvier has led a life of freedom and success as a small theater owner in town. His tragic past has taught him to enjoy life and its pleasures to the fullest. When he meets Anne de Bourgh, she is opposite to everything he has ever known and he is soon reminded of how a gentleman should behave with a real lady. Can a tradesman win the heart of a lady? Even more important: How can he win Lady Catherine’s approval?
    What Anne reveals about her past gives her courage, but will it be enough?

The Review: This book starts off right before the beginning events of the first book. A maid brings an old letter from her father to Anne's attention and thus the plot of the book begins. Anne moves to London after being kicked out of Rosings and then tries to find out more about her father. She ends up meeting Luc and his sister. They in turn introduce her to a member of her family that she has never known. I won't say anymore as I don't want to reveal more of the book. I enjoyed this book a lot more than the first one. I'm eagerly awaiting book three. 

Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5
