We’re getting ready to dive in to the details of the book. Haven’t read it yet? Get acquainted with our latest selection here.
Hello! It’s the end of October which means it’s time to talk about the delightful Kitty Talbot and her quest to find a fortune by way of a husband. I just loved Kitty and her spunk! She was so focused on saving her family home and providing for her sisters… it was truly endearing. Her humor and quick wit made me want to sit down to tea with her, and enjoy all the more, the banter between her and Lord Radcliffe as he sussed out her intentions for the season.
The Lady’s Guide to Fortune-Hunting by Sophie Irwin was the perfect cozy historical fiction novel for October and I can’t wait to discuss it further in the comments.
As always, remember the Ashley Brooke Book Club exists to be fun and thoughtful, so please be kind and respectful in the comments below.
I can’t wait to hear your thoughts!
Kitty faces challenges because of her gender, her social standing, and her lack of parental support. How is she able to work within these limitations in order to achieve her goal?
Sibling relationships—Kitty’s with Cecily, Lord Radcliffe’s with Archie—play an important role in the story. How do these relationships evolve over the course of the novel? What do Lord Radcliffe and Kitty have in common in their roles at siblings?
At the start of the novel, Kitty and Lord Radcliffe are at each other’s throats, unwilling to see eye to eye. What do you think is the turning point in their relationship? Is there more than one moment that causes a shift in their dynamic?
