Klassen has written some amazing novels, and The Secret of Pembrooke Park counts as one of them. Although longer than her recent novels, the plot flows and twists, keeping this reader engaged until the final page. It is one of her better novels, with excellent plot and character development. Klassen gives a nod to her love of all things Austen by naming two characters “Lizzy” and “Jane.” The romance is clean, and the faith elements are well-integrated, not heavy-handed.
