Publisher's Summary

An honorable life

Daniel Banks is a man of the cloth whose vocation is the last comfort he has left - and even his churchman's collar is beginning to feel like a noose. At the urging of family, Daniel attempts to start his life over as vicar in the sleepy Kentish town of Haddondale, family seat to the earls of Bellefonte.

Challenged by passion

Resigned to spinsterhood, Lady Kirsten Haddonfield welcomes the new vicar to stay at her family's home while his is under renovation. Suddenly, the handsome visitor has Kirsten rethinking her ideas about love and marriage, but a dreadful secret from Daniel's past may cast a shadow too long for either of them to overcome.

Contains mature themes.

Well-written, well-developed characters

I found this to be a really good story....one that stays with you even after you've completed the book. The characters were fairly well-developed and fairly complex. The heroine was a pain in the neck, though. Her personality was so strong, she overpowered the other characters...and the story. I may listen to again....but it will be way down on the list.

I am a Grace Burrowes Fan, but this was....meh

It was hard to keep track of who was who in the story. Two boys, Danny and Digby, and other lads as well, all angst ridden. One of them, Danny I think, can’t figure out what to call his parents because they have gone from being his Aunt to his Mother, but he still has to call her Aunt and she remarried and his Uncle Daniel, who used to be his father......
I got through it because I usually enjoy her books but it was difficult.

A married Vicar, who hides the fact.

The Hero is a married Vicar, who despite his vocation, is willing to stray.
The Heroine has a brother, who claims to love her, yet doesn't tell her the Vicar is married. She gives her affection, throws herself at him, then is informed, she has no hope.
So despite this major lie and humiliation, she forgives and understands.
Then there is a child that has been brought up for five years thinking the Vicar was his father. His mother can now care for him, he is removed from his "father". He lives with his mother, who he has to call Aunt and his "father" Uncle.
Not a pleasant story.
