I received this book as a gift from author Jane Porter. I have never read Lilian Darcy before so I went into this book not really sure what to expect and not having an expectations. After starting slow by the time I got to the 5th chapter I found that I really liked this book. The book had a really good story and very well developed characters. If I didn't have a full-time job I would have probably finished this book in one seating because the story kept me intrigued and wanting to know what happens to the characters. This book had romance, sadness, forgiveness and family. I am very happy that it is part of a series and can't wait to read the next book in the series. I would recommend this book to people who like romance and stories that have a gripping heartfelt story.
