Pride goes before the fall . . . but what comes after?
Darbury, England, 1814
Amelia Barrett, heiress to an ancestral estate nestled in the English moors, defies family expectations and promises to raise her dying friend’s infant baby. She’ll risk everything to keep her word—even to the point of proposing to the child’s father, Graham, a sea captain she’s never met.
Tragedy strikes when the child vanishes with little more than a sketchy ransom note hinting to her whereabouts. Fear for the child’s safety drives Amelia and Graham to test the boundaries of their love for this infant.
Amelia’s detailed plans would normally see her through any trial, but now, desperate and shaken, she examines her soul and must face her one weakness: pride.
Graham’s strength and self-control have served him well and earned him much respect, but chasing perfection has kept him a prisoner of his own discipline.
Both must learn to accept God’s sovereignty and relinquish control so they can grasp the future He has for planned for them.
*A story sure to be loved by all Regency fiction fans!*
(BOOK ONE: WHISPERS ON THE MOORS)
Time & Place- November,1814~Darbury,England,
Heroine-Amelia Barrett Hero-Graham Sterling
I had fallen in love with this story from when I had first read it. It was such a decent and adventurous story. It wasn’t boring at all! It’s a story full of faith, love,devotion,romance,and a little suspense in the mix as well. I really like when the characters in the book are traveling from place to place in the book or if there’s a pursuit between the good guys and the bad guys. How awesome is that? I can truly say that Amelia Barrett reminded me of a Jane Austen heroine and Graham Sterling was such a *dashing* hero worth reading about. To be quite frank, I think that Graham Sterling reminded me a whole lot of Captain Wentworth in Persuasion. *SIGH*
I discovered this lovely story last year and I’ve treasured it ever since! I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to own when I saw it at this store(click on the link below). They have so many discount book to choose from and I was very surprised when I saw a huge selection of christian fiction. There’s one catch though, these books are not like this year’s release’s but they have sales on books that have been out like a year or more. They have everything from classics to nonfiction. As far as I could see,the christian fiction and classics were from $1.99 to no more than $8.00 from what I could gather. I didn’t price the nonfiction. The prices that I mentioned were pretty good prices to me compared to $15. If y’all know anywhere that you can get great deals on books PLEASE leave a comment below! There’s nothing like owning a book that you love so that you can read it over and over again! YOU CAN CLICK HERE TO SEE IF THIS STORE IS IN YOUR AREA.
