She begged him once more to meet in the garden at midnight.
“If you love me,” said the letter.
But if he loved her, he would not come at all.
Enjoy another Gothic Style Regency from Hannah Linder.
The accidents are not a matter of chance. They are deliberate. As English gentleman William Kensley becomes aware of the danger at Rosenleigh Manor, he pleads for the truth of his past from the only man he can trust—until that man is murdered.
As the secrets unfold into scandal, William’s world is tipped into destitution, leaving him penniless and alone. His only comfort is in the constant friendship and love of Isabella Gresham. If he does not have their nonsense at the seashore, their laughter, their reckless adventures, has he anything at all?
He should have known that would be ripped from him too. When a hidden foe arises from their acquaintances and imperils Isabella’s life, William may be the only one willing to risk his life to rescue her. But even if he frees Isabella from her captors, will he still have to forsake her heart?
Some sacrifice everything for love. Others sacrifice love for everything else. In this haunting tale of rigid social prejudices and heart-aching regrets, the greatest decision of their life will be determined in the garden of the midnights.
Love does not exist - or does it?
It is not what a man possesses but who he is.
This Regency novel will keep you guessing right up to the satisfying end. There are plenty of twists and turns, intrigue and even suspense as you travel through what life was like in the early 1800’s. William Kensley has experienced the loss of his mother at birth and has no father of record. Abused by those who are supposed to love and care for him, it seems someone is now out to murder him. Leaving all he has ever known, he heads into an unknown future.
Finding friends along the way, WIlliam learns that forgiveness is of utmost importance. This forgiveness must include God as well as those who wronged him. Will he survive long enough to do so?
