Book Summary

In Tunbridge Wells, Denzell watches a beautiful girl playing with children in the snow. The mysterious Verena proves cold and apparently impervious to Denzell’s charm. Verena, anxious for her abused mother’s health, is struggling to remain aloof. Will his affection be enough to coax Verena out of her fear of matrimony?


With each chapter I grew deeper and deeper into Verena's life. Her fears for her mother and herself, even her half brother. Living in fear is horrifying to be sure. I know from experience.

It take a lot to trust again, and a very special person to lead you to trust them. This was sad but so true to what many suffer today as well as back then.

Beautifully written Elizabeth!
