Title: Stealing Roses Author: Heather Cooper Published: October 24th 2019 by Allison & Busby Length: Paperback, 352 pages

What it’s about (synopsis via Goodreads):

1862. Growing up in the small seaside town of Cowes on the Isle of Wight, free-spirited Eveline Stanhope feels trapped by the weight of expectation from her well-to-do family. Her mother and two elder sisters would rather she focus her attention on marrying well, preferably to the wealthy Charles Sandham, but Eveline wants more for herself, and the arrival of the railway provides just the cause she's been searching for. Driven by the cherished memories of her late father, Eveline is keen to preserve the landscape he loved so much and becomes closely involved with the project. She forms a growing attachment to engineer Thomas Armitage. But when the railway is complete and Thomas moves on, will Eveline wish to return to the way things were?

How and when I got it:

I got this August 4,2019 as a NetGalley download.

Why I want to read it:

First off the cover really drew me in.

Secondly it's a historical and I am drawn to historicals and what I can learn from them.

The 1800's time period is fascinating to me and how different things were back then and it's fascinating to see the change in attitude and thinking of people from them to now.

When reading this type of book I can always imagine myself in the setting presented.

What do you think? Would you read this book?
