Publisher's Summary

England, 1799: A traumatized soldier returning to a derelict inheritance. A widow with a small son and a manipulative father.  

Major Matthew Southam returns from India, hoping to put the trauma of war behind him and forget his past. Instead, he finds a derelict estate and a family who wish he'd died abroad.   

Charlotte MacKinnon married without love to avoid her father's unpleasant choice of husband. Now a widow with a young son, she lives in a small Cotswold village with only the money she earns by her writing.   

Matthew is haunted by his past, and Charlotte is fearful of her father's renewed meddling in her future. After a disastrous first meeting, can they help each other find happiness?

Loved it.

This is the first period romance in a long time I’ve listened to all the way through without skipping, though I did speed up a few spots. The style is step-by-step in many places (he did this; then he did that), but for some reason, it’s such an interesting story that I didn’t mind that. It’s a relaxing, slower listen, but well worth it.

A new favorite author

Loved the story as an ebook. Having an audio version only enhances the story. Great narrator.

lovely story but narrator lost it a star

Beautiful story of life after trauma and bullying relatives.
just loved how the characters stories were all intertwined. Gently paced and demure - loved the Davey character.
