After the death of its patriarch, the fate of the family and that of Firentia, born from a Lombardi and a peasant, fall to ruin at the hands of her useless and cruel cousins. But when she's reincarnated as her seven-year-old self, she’ll work to protect the family's honor, gain her grandpa Lulac's favor, and prevent her own father’s death. In this lifetime, there’s only one way for her to win: become the head of their mighty household.

gallahan is your back okay bc you're carrying this whole manhwa on your back

I didn't like how the author had to make everyone look dumb just to show us how special and smart Tia is. Everyone's like oh this and that happened? I wonder what to do hMmMM until Tia finally shows up and be like it's big brain time🧠 move aside peasants. Like why? There are so many ways to show how smart one is without dumbing down other characters.

The grandfather is supposed to be this respected and fearsome head of the Lombardi family but he barely does anything aside from ohh-ing and ahh-ing at everything Tia does. What are you actually here for, my dude? Even Tia's aunt is more useful than him, and she barely shows up in the story.

The only thing I liked about this manhwa thus far—aside from the art, of course, which is pretty good—is Gallahan's character development. Mans literally the only reason I stuck around until ch. 40. He's very timid, avoids conflict at all costs, and he loves his daughter so much that he made a whole fucking book—complete with drawings!—for her debutante. Despite his shortcomings, he is such a sweet and loving father to Tia. Bless this man's heart. I hope to see more scenes between the two of them.

Read the reviews saying it's good and story and FMC's character is something new, nah it's just disappointing to read this day to day common webtoon give it a try if you're into utter common genre and stupidly loyal sub character with no reason follow the protagonist and MC that loves stupid FMC with loyal dog like attitude. //Your throne is much better

I really love all the stories from Ant Studio! All the stories are interesting and the art are really beautiful, my favorites are this manhwa and the villainess reverse the hourglass!

For the story maker, the storyline is very good, fresh and interesting😌❤️, I Love You!

I don’t understand the lack of enthusiasm for this one, because in its category it’s one of the best.
First of all, the art is exquisite. I absolutely adore it. But it’s far from being its only good point : the storytelling is on point, the characters are amazing, the plot intricate enough to be interesting to me, and the pace is fantastic (not too fast nor too slow).
The fl is resourceful but doesn’t show off her adult-like intelligence, she behaves as a mature child but still as a child. I like that she’s capable but not OP. I have had enough of mary sue and I was very pleased to see that Tia wasn’t one among many. I also like that the other characters are not just here to showcase her abilities, they have their own personalities and goals. For example I really liked the fact that the first prince didn’t fall in love with her just because she stood up to him. The same goes for her stupid cousins (Belesac and his acolyte), they don’t change their ways just to appeal to her after being beat up. I also have high expectations for the romance with the second prince, the chemistry seems wonderful from the preview and I can’t wait to see how they will get to that point.
The adults are also sensible here, and seem to have things going for them independently from the children.
Yeah, it really is a great one, exactly what I’ve been looking for in this sub genre.

I don’t know if it’s because I haven’t stumbled yet upon the ones you guys have read, but the closest one I can compare it to is Lady Baby and they are nothing alike. Lady Baby was a big disappointment, this one is everything it claims to be. I can’t wait to read more 🔥

It's not great...

As other users have said, it's a copy-paste story of a young noble girl taking hold of the future with her previous life to guide her. Nothing very original here, and in fact there are a lot of gaps in story-telling because we're expected to be so familiar with the trappings of this genre already e.g. it's clear we're supposed to love and adore the second prince, but all he has is his tragic backstory... Not enough work has been done with this story, it's very devoid of passion and life.

This story will tide me over while I wait for my better stories to update, but I'm not being challenged or excited with 'I'll be the Matriarch'. A little disappointing, because the start of the story (where she was just a poor girl sneaking into the library) had potential. The art is very polished, though, I will give it that...

Anyways, Tia and her dad are the best. Her grandpa comes 2nd lmao. 3rd are the twins, her teacher, and her cousin Larane/Anne (the female one).

[No comment yet on male lead, haven't seen him since preview]. 🤔🤷😂

You say her dad's weak? Well..
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Her dad will have a character development later, don't worry about it too much.

Copy-paste story, good art

Soulless copy-paste story done with zero imagination. The author tried to use every possible cliche to raise the chance his work will be relevant in a tags search.
+4 because art was good.

Classic formula at this point but the heroine is cute, resourceful and engages with her new found infantile environment in a fun way. Attractive characters designs and art make this one to keep an eye on. Yes it is by the books so far, but there is a reason we are all reading the endless bounty of this sub-genre. Check it out.
