As a young child, Bridget Barrington witnessed a murder. As a teenager, Philippe Cavell came to live with the family, but as a servant. Bridget was instantly in love with him.

Six years passes by and Philippe’s servant days with the family are soon to be over. Bridget wants to finally tell him that she is in love with him, but instead, she tells her parents. Her parents are outraged over the matter, they end Phillip’s contract as servant a few weeks early. They announce Bridget that she will be married to Edward Moorehead, an older man.

Edward is not the right match for Bridget and he has a secret of his own. Bridget’s dark past comes back to haunt her, as she struggles to forget Philippe.

There have been countless historical Christian novels over the years with the same plot - Two loves separated by their religion. I was surprised that the author added a mystery subplot to the novel. Overall, I enjoyed reading the book. If you like, historical romance books then check this book out.

*I would like to thank Thomas Nelson for sending me a copy to review.

  1. Thanks for the review! I'm glad you enjoyed the novel, and pleased that you found it somewhat out-of-the-box from most other Christian fiction. Sometimes we authors try to wiggle out of the boxes the genre keeps insisting that we remain in :)
