Hearts of Amberley #2
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 jeopardise any chance they have for happiness. Can Henry show Amy that true love will give her everything she could ever need?
This kind of books is not normally on my to-read pile but something in this blurb attracted me and I was sold. Honestly, when the story is good, the genre is less important.
The author takes us back to 1803 but I have to say that the essence of the story can as well be a modern tale of love and trust.
I often think the characters in historical romance novels are very naive and a bit foolish. In this case the author has created very loveable ones that made the book very real.
I enjoyed reading it a lot. 5 stars.
Thank you, Charlotte Brentwood.
