Darbury, England, 1814
Amelia Barrett gave her word. Keeping it could cost her everything.
Amelia Barrett, heiress to an estate nestled in the English moors, defies family expectations and promises to raise her dying friendÆs baby. SheÆll risk everything to keep her wordùeven to the point of proposing to the childÆs fatherùa sea captain sheÆs never met.
When the child vanishes with little more than an ominous ransom note hinting at her whereabouts, Amelia and Graham are driven to test the boundaries of their love for this little one.
AmeliaÆs detailed plans would normally see her through any trial, but now, desperate and shaken, sheÆs forced to examine her soul and face her one weakness: pride.
GrahamÆs 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. And away from the family he has sworn to love and protect.
Both must learn to have faith and relinquish control so they can embrace the future ahead of them.
