Once a Wallflower, Always a Wallflower by Samantha Holt
The Templetons have inherited a fortune but there's a catch... Minerva Templeton has a reputation for being, well, something of a recluse. A wallflower, if you will. However, due to her grandfather’s demands, all that must change. She must travel to the wilds of Scotland to fetch a mysterious something.

After all, there’s only so many new experiences a wallflower can have…
Book Length: Novella - 60-150 PagesHistorical fiction is a literary genre in which the narrative takes place in the past. Historical books capture the particulars of the time as correctly as possible to get authenticities, such as societal norms, ways, habits, and traditions. Historical fiction is put in a real location during a culturally recognizable moment. The facts and the actions from the narrative can be a mixture of real occasions and ones in the writer's creativity as they fill in the gaps. Characters may be pure fiction or based on actual people. But what about them and their look and attitudes, how they talk, and issues that they face, everything which should match the era.
