When Katherine “Kit” FitzGilbert turned her back on London society more than a decade ago, she determined never to set foot in a ballroom again. But when business takes her to London and she’s forced to run for her life, she stumbles upon not only a glamorous ballroom but also Graham, Lord Wharton. What should have been a chance encounter becomes much more as Graham embarks on a search for his friend’s missing sister and is convinced Kit knows more about the girl than she’s telling.

After meeting Graham, Kit finds herself wishing things could have been different for the first time in her life, but what she wants can’t matter. Long ago, she dedicated herself to helping women escape the same scorn that drove her from London and to raising the innocent children caught in the crossfire. But as much as she desperately wishes to tell Graham everything, the risk of revealing the truth may come at too high a price for those she loves.

Kristi Ann Hunter is the author of the Hawthorne House series and a 2016 RITA Award winner, an ACFW Genesis contest winner, and a Georgia Romance Writers Maggie Award for excellence winner. She lives with her husband and three children in Georgia. Find her online at

My thoughts and giveaway:

I adored Kristi’s previous series, I seriously loved every book. So what could she do now?

Well she did it. She has written another wonderful series. Of course this is only the first book but I loved it. It has a very unique story line, not what I was expecting at all. It kept me fully engaged.

This book as about learning to trust God, having faith. Kit struggles with this, for good reason.

There is some really powerful dialogue in this book. I wish I could remember exactly, but I remember reading something Graham said and was like, yeah, that’s truth right there.

I can’t wait to see where the series goes.

    Kristi’s first series was sooo good! I happened to be looking at books in a Christian book store and saw the first one sitting on the shelf. The cover drew me in right away, and the story sounded so good. From there I continued to purchase and read the others when they were released. This seems like another amazing series and I can’t wait to read it!
