I was excited (and thankful) that Backlit PR and NetGalley let me read this book because I am a fan of historical fiction romances. The title Banished to Berkshire drew me in as did the whole story concept (I also like this book cover). I read the story in record time and thought this might be a book I could get for my mom; however, there were two spots that ruled that out. My mom doesn't really like to read if a man is getting hard, if you know what I mean. I'm not prudish when it comes to reading, but even I felt a bit awkward when the heroine's father refers to her hymen. I just don't know any father who would do that.

Three stars to me means I like the book. In my head, I did keep feeling the cadence (or prosody) was stiff. I thought the language of conversation was perhaps written this way to indicate the time frame and setting. I think it might be because there weren't a lot of contractions used. I checked some of my favorite authors (Georgette Heyer is one) for their conversations. If it is any consolation to Moore, I also gave three stars to the Heyer book that I picked up. Heyer's conversation flowed, but she definitely had some men/women and servant issues that made me groan. Thankfully, Moore's book did not have those.

Would I read another Cynthia Moore book? Yes. I have hopes that she will find a rhythm that flows a little easier in the conversations of her characters and she will avoid cringy dad situations. I think Moore has what it takes to become the next Georgette Heyer (without the baggage that Heyer brought with her due to life in her times).
