Amaryllis Brigham has been suddenly ejected from the Boston Conservatory of Music. Since she has no place else to go, she turns to her great-aunt and soon finds herself in the middle of Boston's Society. She longs to return to her beloved Seattle though. In order to accomplish that, Amaryllis must marry. Her maternal grandmother has left her a sizable fortune with the stipulation that she marry within a year. She doesn't trust men and has no desire to marry. But she soon finds herself falling in love with Nathan Everstone, a man with his own secrets. Will she learn to trust God and in doing so discover that sometimes things from the past aren't what they seem?
This was the first book I've read by this author, but it won't be the last! The cover caught my attention months ago, but I just hadn't gotten around to reading it yet.
I'll admit, that at first it moved rather slowly. But as the story progressed, and I stuck with it, I found myself becoming enthralled in this story. It has all of the feels of a gothic romance. But it's not.
By the time I finished the book, I promptly wanted to read the second one as I became engrossed in the tale. I loved how Nathan pursued Amaryllis. I loved how he was relentless, yet also tender.
Overall, I enjoyed this book.
I received a Kindle copy for free from the author to review in anticipation of the 4th book coming out later this year. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
