Goodnight Eleanor

Seattle was still a young city after having shaken the ashes from her skirts 20 years earlier from the Great Fire of 1889. While Seattle boasts of a 500-room brothel which caters to men's desires, holding hands is an entitled privilege of courtship. Beneath the harnesses of whale bone corsets and suspensory belts strapped across loins, a new generation cries, "What can we not be obedient to?" Queen Victoria has been dead for eight years.

Charming!

This work set in the city of Seattle has a charm like none other that I have read in a considerable amount of time. In the beginning of the read we meet a very distasteful family comprising of a dad and three sons, who due to their wealth think the world must bow to their every whim. Thus we meet the Millers. We are also introduced to a delightful, moral family; Eleanor, her parents, brothers and sisters. The warmth, commitment, loyalty, unity and love of this family shined through every page of this work. I fell in love with them and enjoyed reading about their lives. Written in storytelling and journal style, this book stands above others. The story centers around Eleanor, the oldest of this family, who is thrust into service to the Millers to help pay for their home. Eleanor is a strong young woman, struggling to walk in humility yet knowing the value a woman has. We are taken along in her life as she pens the tale of her family and the Millers. Nate, the son of Mr. Miller, who somehow just didn't seem to belong to that family, falls deeply in love with Eleanor. The truth about Nate will shock you, yet make you smile as Eleanor and Nate face their destiny. This is a book that totally kept my interest, had adventure, romance, and mystery, life and death, giving and greed; but somehow combined with all of this, it brought a quietness and a calming effect when reading. It's hard to describe, but was a welcome change to the many works that I review. I highly recommend this book. It's a lovely story of a lovely woman, her life, her family, her destiny. Recommended.
