An Offer From a Gentleman by Julia Quinn

An Offer From a Gentleman by Julia Quinn, the #3 book in the Bridgerton series. The start of this book is a bit annoying. It’s a spin on Cinderella, with a horrible stepmother, two stepdaughers that make her working as a slave after her father’s death. It even involves the “midnight deadline” and her leaving a glove (not a shoe, but that plays a role too) with him. Why?! I think there were much better ways to make up the story. I think it’s a shame because the rest of the book is wonderful, Sophie is a realistic woman, knowing her place in the world. Benedict Bridgerton, the next brother to get married in the Bridgerton family, is nicely presented and how he acts makes sense for that time. I say this because I’ve read a few negative reviews of people who made judgements with modern day sensibilities, ignoring what was the reality in the early 19th century. What’s the point in reading a historical novel if you can’t accept that their world was different and the author should take that into account when telling the story.

About the author: Julia Quinn’s story is a bit different. Her writing career started during her senior year at Harvard College. While she was deciding what to do next in her career, eating ice cream and reading a novel, she thought she could write a novel too.
After two yeas, as she was deciding between Yale School of Medicine and Columbia College of Physicians & Surgeons, her agent told her that her first two books were the subject of a bidding war between two publishing houses. She put the medical school on hold and wrote another one. The following year she did the same again. Finally she went to medical school, just to realize a few months later that it wasn’t for her. She withdrew and never looked back.
