2nd book in the “Magic Locket” series: Theresa Barlow writes stories, magical stories for children. Lord Rivendale has a daughter who cannot speak and the only way to reach her seems to be through Miss Barlow’s books. Both are wary of love, but in trying to help the child Anna, Tessa and William discover they have much more in common than either would have thought.
"...a book worth passing down to a reader's own children some day."--Affaire de Coeur
“THE WIDOWER'S FOLLY is thoroughly enjoyable as a stand-alone. You don't need to read THE AMBITIOUS BARONET first, but once you delve into one, you'll want to read the others. So far, the three sisters and two heroes are quite distinct from each other in personality and interest, yet tied together by love, family and the mysterious locket. Faithful Regency readers are well aware of Ms Kihlstrom's fine novels; readers new to her works will find this an excellent place to start”--Jane Bowers
Note that this book was originally published as a traditional Regency by Signet.
