Kate’s loyalties bind her to the past. Henry’s loyalties compel him to strive for a better future. In a landscape torn between tradition and vision, can two souls find the strength to overcome their preconceptions?
Loyalty has been at the heart of the Dearborne family for as long as Kate can remember, but a war is brewing in their small village, one that has the power to rip families asunder –including her own. As misguided actions are brought to light, she learns how deep her father’s pride and bitterness run, and she begins to wonder if her loyalty is well-placed.
Henry Stockton, heir to the Stockton fortune, returns home from three years at war seeking refuge from his haunting memories. Determined to bury the past, he embraces his grandfather’s goals to modernize his family’s wool mill, regardless of the grumblings from the local weavers. When tragedy strikes shortly after his arrival, Henry must sort truth from suspicion if he is to protect his family’s livelihood and legacy.
Henry has been warned about the Dearborne family. Kate, too, has been advised to stay far away from the Stocktons, but chance meetings continue to bring her to Henry’s side, blurring the jagged lines between loyalty, justice, and truth. Kate ultimately finds herself with the powerful decision that will forever affect her village’s future. As unlikely adversaries, Henry and Kate must come together to find a way to create peace for their families, and their village, and their souls – even if it means risking their hearts in the process.
This novel reminded me so much of North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell. I have never read the actual novel
by Gaskell but I have watched North and South about a hundred times or more. Anyone who loves North and South by BBC
will definitely fall in love with this novel! It was lovely,dramatic,and romantic.
This novel also had some Jane Austen flair to it as well so if you love Regency and Jane Austen her books are
the way to go.
I also loved how the author portrayed the main character,Kate.
I will say that this novel was a bit different from her previous novels. I love to see when authors can show different layers of themselves in their writing.
If you love Regency/Industrial Revolution novels. Then this is definitely the book for you! Highly recommend! Can’t wait for her next book!

This was an awesome read about the sacrifices that we take for granted in our everyday lives.
In this novel, we get to know more about Nickolas which we was one of the characters in her first book in this
series, A Dangerous Legacy. Nickolas was a wonderful character and he was funny.
The heroine,Rosalind was a very interesting character to read about as well and I love how the author
writes about very smart and accomplished women and how they had to overcome obstacles back in the day.
I can say as with most of her books this novel really drew me in from the start.
I read this novel in about 2 days! That is how good it was!
The story was overall well written, romantic and funny to read. I highly recommend this author and
I can’t wait to read whatever else this author comes out with!

First off, let me just brag about how beautiful this book cover is! Pretty much all the book covers from this
author is just breathtaking. Love it!
So, I discovered this author a while back and I’ve been keeping up with whatever novel she has written.
Needless to say, I’ve enjoyed the journey so far. Usually I read her books within a day or two.
A Light On the Hill’s story started out pretty well and I love how her beginnings of a novel just drew me in from the first page. I’ve always wondered about the cities of refuge that the Bible talks about so I think it’s
great that the author is taking a leap in writing about what could have been. I loved the heroine
Moriyah because she has such a strong character. Also the hero was pretty awesome as well. 😉
Though there were times I did have to skip ahead, I still enjoyed reading this novel. This author has become one
of my favorites when it comes to Biblical fiction. I highly recommend reading her books! I can’t wait for her
next book in this series!
