Starving Hearts (Heritage Beacon Fiction, May 2016)
Since her assault, Miss Annette Chetwynd has been plagued by nightmares and worries about an arranged marriage.
She yearns to find her anonymous rescuer. Unfortunately, her health and intellect prevent it. Both repel suitors and cause Annette to doubt God’s existence, at least until He answers her prayers in an unusual way. . . .
Mr. Peter Adsley is joining the clergy, and he desires a godly wife by his side. After a failed attempt to obtain one, he engages in a clandestine meeting with the bewitching young woman who keeps crossing his path. But she is so unsettling.
Destined for disappointments, Peter and Annette both endure disgraceful situations. Will Peter’s faith sustain him through overwhelming setbacks? Can Annette overcome her doubts? Or will their starving hearts yield to the machinations of a mad man?
My opinion: This book is book was a superb read, it was a unique Regency book which made it all the more fun. I immediately liked the main characters and even though there wasn't a huge mystery as to who Annette's mysterious rescuer was. Still it was a well developed story with a lot going on to keep the pages turning.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
