Will Gaining the World Cost Him Everything He Holds Most Dear?

When stable hand Nolan Price learns from his dying mother that he is actually the son of the Earl of Stainsby, his plans for a future with kitchen maid Hannah Burnham are shattered. Once he is officially acknowledged as the earl's heir, Nolan will be forbidden to marry beneath his station.

Unwilling to give up the girl he loves, he devises a plan to elope--believing once their marriage is sanctioned by God that Lord Stainsby will be forced to accept their union. However, as Nolan struggles to learn the ways of the aristocracy, he finds himself caught between his dreams for tomorrow and his father's demanding expectations.

Forces work to keep the couple apart at every turn, and a solution to remain together seems farther and farther away. With Nolan's new life pulling him irrevocably away from Hannah, it seems only a miracle will bring them back together.


First off, with a cover like that, you know it's going to be good. A Most Noble Heir by Susan Anne Mason is all about that cover, the stable boy that had his world turned around with one revelation at his mother's deathbed. It was actually quite depressing, but when I look at that cover, it makes me want to know what's behind that simple smile.

“Promise me you'll let go of your anger. Don't blame God for taking me. His will is beyond our understanding, but perfect in its execution. Don't let this shake your faith...Trust what the Lord has in store for you." (45)

A Most Noble Heir is more than a pretty boy or the romance that one can surmise, though the romance was just perfect. We'll get back to that. I love the multi-dimensional aspect of the plot line. Yes, there's the main aspect as noted in the blurb, but the relationships and the family dynamics have really pulled this story together. Top it off with a message of trusting God's plan, easy said than done as it is gracefully and providentially shown for Noah and Hannah. Love may be easy, but choosing to continue to love through the happy and the difficult, that may what strings through each page, a thread that resonate for all, no matter the time period.

“Sometimes we have to hear God's message several different ways before it finally takes root.” (330)

In all, A Most Noble Heir will be loved by romance fans, historical fans, and fans that love a good redemptive or a faith message. Is it one that will be enjoyed by no matter the type of reader you are. Beautiful with a veracious approach to what matters in life.
