Shy, sweet Cecilia Hatherleigh has always been in love with Edward Amherst, the boy next door. Yet he’s never seen her as anything but the quiet girl in the background as he flirts with the other vivacious women of the ton.
When a near tragedy brings Edward’s attention to his family duties, this prodigal son decides he needs to settle down with a proper wife. Cecilia hopes to convince him to choose her—but God may want her to forget the wayward nobleman and put her future in His hands alone.
These two try to find their way toward happiness, but prejudice, political riots, and the changing face of England’s societal structures begin to block them at every turn. Can their struggles turn to triumph—or will their paths permanently diverge?
I am a huge Carolyn Miller fan and somehow I missed the release of this book. Here is the deal, you know I love an author when I go and purchase the book if I missed it. That is the case with this book. Next week I will be reviewing the next book in this series, so I had to read this one first.
Once again, Carolyn has written a wonderful historical romance. I could identify with Cecy and her shyness and how she often got overlooked by her family.
I really wondered how Ned and her would ever find their way to each other. Would Ned ever see Cecy as more than a friend? It didn’t seem likely. But you’ll have to read to see how Carolyn works it all out.
