Winona Farmington once dreamed of graduating from college, moving to New York City, and pursuing a career in publishing. Then real life got in the way when she left college and returned to her small Michigan hometown to care for her sick mother. Years later, stuck in a dead-end job and an unsatisfying relationship, Winnie has concluded that dreams were meant for others. She consoles herself with binge-watching the British television series that she loves, Beauchamp Hall, enthralled by the sumptuous period drama set on a great Norfolk estate in the 1920s. The rich upstairs-downstairs world brilliantly brought to life by superb actors is the ultimate in escapism. On the day Winnie is passed over for a long-overdue promotion, she is also betrayed by her boyfriend and her best friend. Heartbroken, she makes the first impulsive decision of her conventional life--which changes everything. She packs her bags and flies to England to see the town where Beauchamp Hall is filmed. The quaint B & B where she stays feels like home. The brother and sister who live in the castle where the show is filmed, rich in titles but poor in cash, are more like long-lost friends than British nobility. And the show itself, with its colorful company and behind-the-scenes affairs, is a drama all its own. Winnie's world comes alive on the set of the show.

Think as Jilly Cooper-lite with 200 page less & fewer support characters.

Any compulsive reader of Danielle Steel books knows what to expect on picking up the latest offering. "Beauchamp Hall" is no exception to the general rule- a relationship or two where the man is very mean and the woman breaks up - FINALLY! Anyway the woman does follow her heart and this leads to the perfect man of course. In this case the (un)lucky woman is Winnie and she drops everything she has in Beecher Michigan and heads a continent away to a little village in England following her dream. Lots of action and all ends well -surprise, surprise! If you're an avid Steel fan you could read it but if you're a first-timer give this book a rest because she's written better books.
