First sentence(s):
Screams echoed in every corner of the room, and in her mind.

Can she ever trust again?

Amy Miller is struggling to come to terms with her new life as a mother, while being a reluctant guest in a rigid gentry household. A victim of abuse, she is determined to never trust a man again.

Henry Russell has loved Amy for as long as he can remember, but his family want nothing to do with her. A chance encounter with Amy rekindles a friendship which might save both of them.

The discovery of a secret which holds the key to Amy’s past will change them both forever, and jeopardize any chance they have for happiness. Can Henry show Amy that true love will give her everything she could ever need?

Sensuality level: sweet (only kissing)
Some content may challenge sensitive readers.


My two-bits:

Loved falling into this world with its characters and the setting of country living in England.

I liked how both Amy and Henry's perspectives are presented with their struggles to unite.

Despite the traumas in this story things, move along gently which makes for a cozy clean romance read.

  2. "Victim of abuse" is much too modern!!!! I am very sensitive to using the correct terms for the period. If she had been raped, use that term. They would not have understood this concept (abuse) at all.
