Long and Short Reviews known as LASR had given a review for Sweetbrier Academy.
Here are some of the wonderful things that the reviewer had to say.
"Having Faith, the first book in a series that provides a fascinating look at Sweetbriar Academy, a house of elegant and well-educated courtesans, is a touching story full of heart and passion."
"Despite her profession there is an innocence about Faith that I found quite refreshing and fascinating. She comes across as very sweet and soft-hearted and I enjoyed her interactions with the other characters of the story. I longed to know more about this intriguing character and couldn’t wait to see how the story would go as Faith finds herself caught in the middle of a battle between two determined men."
"With this book, Ms. O’Berry manages to give her courtesans and paramours heart, elegance, and class as they take pride in their occupation as they seek to improve their lives and take control of their own destiny. "
"I do wish we could have learned a bit more about the pasts of Faith and Opal, the proprietress of the Academy, and what led them to choose the life they lead. I would also like to know what becomes of Faith and Opal and hope that is answered in future books."
"If Having Faith is what one can expect with Ms. O’Berry’s Sweetbriar Academy series, it should definitely be an entertaining series of reads."
Sounds like a call for more in the series to me! Gonna be a very busy year!
