Publisher's Summary

Freya runs from her past, but trouble seems to follow her everywhere she goes.

Years after discovering her parents' marriage was invalid, and she illegitimate, Freya continued to struggle with the scandal hanging over her head. When her father reappears with his real wife and daughter, Freya flees London entirely.

With an inherited country house, Freya at least has somewhere to run. She looks forward to meeting her faithful steward, who writes the most diverting letters. However, Mr. Daniel Bryce is not the old gentleman she expected, but young, handsome, and eligible.

Freya struggles with her growing feelings for her steward as they work together to renovate the only home she has left. When a stranger shows up and threatens to reveal Freya's past, will she find the strength to remove herself from the scandal's shadow?

Beautiful sweet story!

At first,I wasn’t sure where the story was going. There’s a letter she received, she wants to read but then, we’re in the next chapter. I am sill not sure what happened to the letter. I felt like I kept waiting for something and then, you get there and, the story ends.

However on the other hand,

The story is a very beautiful sweet story. I am more use to having loads of drama and romance. Also, it took me a little while to get use to the soft voice of the narrator but once I did, Mary Sarah you did a great job!

Not for Me

This book was not for me. The heroin was too passive for me. The author had her talking as herself. example:
" I picked up the dog and I walked outside". I don't liked that. Also we never know what the hero is thinking.

This is where whispersync demonstrates it’s value!

As usual, this author writes an engaging story that captures the emotional nuance and intensity of human interactions very well. Once engaged with the story, I stayed engaged, right to the end. This series is written in the first person, occasionally straying into 3rd person descriptors - eg “I tucked an errant curl behind my ear”. I don’t believe a sensible person would describe their own action in this way, and the main protagonist worked hard to be sensible and real. I think anyone would find it difficult to write in the 1st person in this genre, so I put it down to teething problems - vindicated as I progressed through the second in the series.

The narration was bizarre, and remained so. I took a break from the audiobook version before the end of the second chapter, returning to Kindle for the next couple, and was relieved to find that the story contained references to cats. The author wasn’t trying to bemuse me by including references to ‘carts’ or ‘Kurds’ with long tails and difficult personalities. For convenience, I returned to the audiobook, but often found I had to rework what I’d heard in my mind to make sense of the story.
The narrator did a great job with the accent for about 60% of every sentence, but consistently mispronounced words with the short ‘a’ sound, eg ‘act’, as ‘arct’, and short ‘o’ sound as something like ‘aw’ eg ‘doll’ as ‘doorl’ - almost as if someone had told her that British speaking people pronounce ‘pass’ (short ‘a’ in the US) as ‘parss’, and the rule had been overgeneralised. Hence, her pronunciation of ‘fact’ confused me greatly for a moment, every time.
I don’t mean to mock - This really had to be an error at the production level.
