What It's About:
Amelia Barrett, heiress to an estate nestled in the English moors, defies family expectations and promises to raise her dying friend’s baby. She’ll risk everything to keep her word—even to the point of proposing to the child’s father—a sea captain she’s never met.
When the child vanishes with little more than an ominous ransom note hinting at her whereabouts, Amelia and Graham are driven to test the boundaries of their love for this little one.
Amelia’s detailed plans would normally see her through any trial, but now, desperate and shaken, she’s forced to examine her soul and face her one weakness: pride.
Graham’s strength and self-control have served him well and earned him much respect, but chasing perfection has kept him a prisoner of his own discipline. And away from the family he has sworn to love and protect.
Both must learn to have faith and relinquish control so they can embrace the future ahead of them.
This book is beautifully written, with an almost lyrical tone to it. I liked the premise, the characters, the growing romance between Graham and Amelia and the rich Regency feel. I especially liked how both the main characters needed to grow in faith and trust and the knowledge we can't do everything on our own. I'm excited to read the second book in this series, too, which follows Graham's brother.
