Set in 1890 Victorian England, Dark Persuasion tells a romantic story of regret, restitution, forgiveness, and redemption. It is a triangle of deceit and love fueled by emotions of selfish pursuit, guilt, and surrender among three people who are prisoners of their past.
Patrick Rochester wins Charlotte Gray's hand in marriage, but he is haunted with grief and guilt. When his blind wife finally loves and completely trusts him, the revelation of his identity threatens to destroy their life together. In the end, Charlotte learns that love can be blind for everyone - even her.

This is a very interesting story. As a child, the hero cruelly injures a neighbor's child. As an adult, he attempts restitution without her or her family knowing that he is responsible for her injury. And his brother has become a heartless rake who has no conscience about the accident or trying to seduce vulnerable females. It's always a relief to find a story that doesn't read like a paint by numbers picture. It held my interest; I'd listen to it again.
The story was wonderful enough to keep my attention but the authors descriptions of the surroundings made the story come to life. Can't wait until more from Vicki Hopkins becomes available on Audible.
