    1. I cannot trust my friend to ever give me book suggestions again. If I ever hear her refer or compare this to Austen I shall slap her face with a salmon.

    2. This is my favorite Julie Klassen book so far! I enjoyed the little mysteries and secrets revealed in the story, and the secondary characters were wonderfully original and interesting. I also enjoyed the little parallels of the heroine with Jane Austen, as she was also an authoress. The plot was enjoyable intricate. Well done.

    3. I have a standard "No Christian fiction" policy that stems from the general irritation I feel when a story is going along swimmingly and then all of a sudden it's like you're in Sunday School - and I hate Sunday School. One minute you're reading about a mystery, the next the main character is pontificating on things like mercy and salvation. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a complete pagan, and I get that these are good things. I just don't like them in books. They feel wrong somehow, too out in the [...]

    5. "'It is you,' he began foolishly. 'I almost did not recognize you. Without the cap, I mean, and. . . well you were dressed so. . . That is, I thought you were . . .

    6. Julie Klassen has done it again. A wonderful story full of intrigue and mystrey and many twits and turns in the plot which, I can assure you, you will not expect! It kept me hooked the whole time and I read far too late into the night to finish it – I just had to know what was going to happen! It had more serious themes running through it than the Silent Governess (with talk of mistresses and the heroine herself landed in the Gatehouse due to the loss of her virtue.) However, it was a great st [...]

    7. This book kept me guessing all the way. It starts off with immediate action, with the heroine leaving her parents' home for exile with her former nurse. She is under disgrace for her actions while at a house party (we aren't told details until later in the story). It had the feel of a true Regency story with some elements of mystery thrown in. The romance was very subtle and enjoyable; we didn't get the know the characters only for their bodily traits and perfect fitness for each other, but for [...]

    8. As far as the story goes it was kind of fun and cute. As for the writing. I thought it was lacking. A lot. The characters were one sided. They fit the role they were written for and nothing more. The plot twists were obvious. Coincidencs piled up so high that it was almost funny. (Miss Aubrey the hidden author happens to be in personal connection with 3 other famous writers of her time. In fact they are all living on the same property at one point). Anyhoo my other complaint is that Miss Aubrey [...]

    9. I really liked the mysteries within the mystery of the "girl in the gatehouse" herself. Also, Klassen's nod to Persuasion's Capt. Wentworth made me happy since I love that book and that character. Like Jane Austen, I know I can count on Klassen to provide no loose ends and happy endings. I also like that she subtly weaves in the spiritual elements behind the story and connects it well with the plot. It's like reading a parable at times. I definitely recommend this book if you like Jane Austen. : [...]

    10. If you are looking for a touch of Jane Austen, a bit of mystery and some good ol English scandal, then The Girl in the Gatehouse is one for you!I have to admit, I was expecting much from this book, for no other reason than I hadn’t heard of the book, nor read anything by Julie Klassen. I was going in blind (and you just never know when you do that). Plus I had just finished a fantastic series, so I was still recovering from that book hangover and dreams of medieval Italy.But this story grew on [...]

    11. This book just matched my mood today I guess. I got caught up in the story of Mariah and the atmosphere of the book, like I was transported back in time to Regency England. I really liked Mariah and thought she was a great leading lady. The book starts soon after her father banishes her after a mistake she has made. Alone in the world except for her companion, Miss Dixon, she finds a place to stay at her aunt’s gatehouse. I really liked the setting; the quaint gatehouse seemed cozy and invitin [...]

    12. This was disappointing. It built a nicely complex story, but the characters were often unconvincing and at times the plot development felt forced, taking away from the stories' power as a tale of redemption and forgiveness and making it seem more like an Austenesque soap opera.

    13. Updated:*Warning for mature elements in this*old:I loved how the author handled difficult topics to write about. And how NONE of the side characters felt like they weren't real.

    14. I plainly, honestly, loved this book. It is my fourth by this amazing author, and when you think things can’t get better, there she does it again. I was pleasantly surprised by The Girl in the Gatehouse, it was impossible to put down, and it got me reading late into the night, because I just needed to know more. First things first. I feel compelled to say that not every piece of Regency fiction is to be compared with Jane Austen. That’s unfair, and unnecessary, to say the least. Although in [...]

    15. I had read good things about Julie Klassen's inspirational regencies so I sought this book out. It started out well. The setting of a young woman in "exile" because of misbehavior and a romance with a sea captain promised a good riff on Jane Austen's themes. However, Ms. Klassen can't hold a candle to Austen when it comes to creating believable characters and witty dialogue. I could have seen past the dialogue problem--who besides Georgette Heyer has come close?--but the clumsy plotting was just [...]

    16. “When my mother and father forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.”~~Psalm 17:10This verse kept running through my mind as I read Julie Klassen’s historical novel, The Girl in the Gatehouse. In the story, Mariah Aubrey stumbles into disgrace and, as a result, is harshly rejected by her autocratic father. He banishes his heartbroken daughter from their home—with only a brief good-bye for her mother and sister—and hides her away in a relative’s gatehouse. It is there, in a quiet cor [...]

    17. Having read three other Julie Klassen novels, I was eager to get stuck into a fourth. This didn't quite live up to The Tutor's Daughter, The Apothecary's Daughter or The Maid of Fairbourne Hall, and I think it was because the sheer volume of secrets made it cross the line into melodrama. I doubt there was a single character who wasn't nursing something deep, dark, shameful or sinister. It was difficult, therefore, to forget that it was a fiction novel instead of getting totally engrossed in the [...]

    18. I'm not sure what took me so long to discover Julie Klassen, but I am loving all of her books. "The Girl in the Gatehouse" was one of the most satisfying books I have read in a long time. The simplicity of the times, the beauty of the setting, the depth of the characters and the mystery of the circumstances weave together to make a magnificent tapestry that compose this book. I love the way Julie presents a situation - young woman wrapped in scandel gets sent away from her family to live alone w [...]

    19. I love The Maid of Fairbourne Hall, so I tried another Julie Klassen. The pacing in this book was just way too slow with none of the great romantic tension like Fairbourne Hall.

    20. (Alert - some spoilers)I picked up a paper bound copy through my local library without realizing the author's obsession with Jane Austen. Anyone who has ever read Austen's work notices just how many phrases and ideas from Persuasion was used heavily along with Mansfield Park.Persuasion:Naval Captain comes back looking to reclaim the love who was persuaded he wasn't good enoughRents a large house to impress herHas a friend with a limp from the navy (Capt. Harville)es the quote: means of bringing [...]

    21. I have loved all of Julie Klassen's books; however, "The Girl in the Gatehouse" is one of my favorites! I liked this one nearly as much as her first book, "The Lady of Milkweed Manor." As a huge Regency and Jane Austen, I loved the parallels between this story and Austen's tales--both through names, characters, and plot similarities. Yet, I enjoyed Klassen's ability to make the story original and her added touches with poorhouse and the Navy. I also loved that the main character, along with seve [...]

    22. Julie's books are for the fans who need a little more Jane Austen in their lives. These are not fast paced giddy romances with no story line. Her books are thought out and always interesting. Whenever I feel like slowing things down and traveling back to England I pick up one of her books and am never disappointed. These are clean romances with a little mystery and adult themes. I like the descriptions of making pens in this one. Little details that show the author does her homework. The love st [...]

    23. Attention all historical lovers: this is the book for you. Author Julie Klassen takes the reader on a journey to early 1800’s England. Seriously. Her descriptive capabilities bring this era to life in a very real fashion. What I liked most about Girl in the Gatehouse is the way Klassen brings the plight of women to the forefront of the story, and not just in the heroine’s life. However, I must admit that I did enjoy the pluckiness of main character Mariah in spite of her dire situation. If y [...]

    24. •°o•:*¨¨*:•. MOST ENJOYABLE .•:*¨¨*:• o°•I truly enjoyed this book. The friendship of Mariah and Matthew developed sweetly and naturally. The story immediately opens filled with mystery. There are wonderful characters throughout and various levels of faith portrayed in them.The author describes some very interesting facts in great detail; such as how Mariah made a quill pen and how she made her own ink. Figgy Dowdy was a featured dish… it would have been nice if the author be [...]

    25. This regency romance was better written and more interesting than your average free regency romance and much better edited. The romance story more or less ended where one would expect, but the book was made so much better by the elements that were not strictly romance novel elements. I was particularly impressed with the way the author effortlessly wove historical information and details into the story without seeming contrived. I never felt like one character was boring another by feeding the r [...]

    26. While not quite the emotional ride that Klassen's other books have given me, I did enjoy the tale of Miss Mariah Aubrey and Captain Matthew Bryant. The supporting characters were quite a treat as well, including residents of a nearby poorhouse and servants on the estate where Mariah was staying. (I will say the villians seemed a bit two-dimensional, but that is a flaw that can be overlooked as I don't really want to understand villains overmuch anyway.)All of the characterization pales in compar [...]

    27. I saw the gatehouse…and the girl who inhabited it in this sweeping novel that covered the life and breath of a solitary authoress.Having been a great fan of another book by this author, The Lady of Milkweed Manor, THE GIRL IN THE GATEHOUSE is similar to her debut novel, but had its own arc that made it unique. My heart ached for Mariah and the repercussions that have fallen upon her because of a mistake in judgment she made. It was written in such a way that with each turn of the plot I ached [...]

    28. Review on : amazon/review/R14PHYCFReview on my blog (to be posted 6/13): christianbookshelfreviews4.5 starsGirl in the Gatehouse was a very good regency romance novel that I think fans of this genre will definitely enjoy!While Girl in the Gatehouse isn't my favorite of the Julie Klassen books I've read so far (that would be The Maid of Fairbourne Hall), it's a close second. The characters were so different and special. It's hard for me to try to pick one favorite and I don't think I can - all of [...]

    29. I should have read this book three years ago when I bought it - I think I would have liked it more. Since then my tastes have evolved away from romances like this. I still like the odd romance, but I'm finding I'm a lot more picky these days. Maybe I've read too many and they've gotten too predictable for me. The inspirational ones are often more moralizing than I like as well, even though I like the lack of physical intimacy descriptions.Anyway, if you like inspirational romances, this is a goo [...]

    30. I wanted an audiobook the other day, and this one caught my eye at the library. It wasn't til I got it home and they were reading off the publishing information that I realised it was one of those inspirationy romances where the two main characters can't get together until they get it together with the big man upstairs. Un/fortunately, that element only comes into play at the very end of a very long, obvious, indulgent and dull plot involving nothing much of positive interest. Among the most ann [...]
