Summary:

Her secret cloaks her in isolation and loneliness. His secret traps him in a life that is not his own.

Cecily Faire carries the shame of her past wherever she treads, knowing one slip of the tongue could expose her disgrace. But soon after becoming a lady's companion at Willowgrove Hall, Cecily finds herself face-to-face with a man well-acquainted with the past she's desperately hidden for years.

Nathaniel Stanton has a secret of his own—one that has haunted him for years and tied him to his father's position as steward of Willowgrove Hall. To protect his family, Nathaniel dares not breath a word of the truth. But as long as the shadow looms over him, he'll never be free to find his own way in the world. He'll never be free to fall in love.

When the secrets swirling within Willowgrove Hall come to light, Cecily and Nathaniel must confront a painful choice: Will they continue running from the past . . . or will they stand together and fight for a future without the suffocating weight of secrets long suffered?

    I ended up enjoying this listen more than anticipated at the outset! As someone who has read a lot of historical romance, I appreciated how the author grounded her content in a historically informed manner without going overboard on detail or being anachronistic. The plot development was well wrought, my concerns that it may go overly-christian were unfounded, and I took pleasure in the characterizations. it's on the very tame end of the emotionality-sexuality continuum: there are no sex scenes, just a solid love story.
