Beauty and bitterness, family and faithfulness, hidden hearts and stolen hopes – all meet together in this clean regency tale telling the salvation of one man’s hardened heart.
Family troubles force Charlotte Hughes to leave her home to become governess to the children of the grim and joyless, John Spencer. Mr Spencer bears the scars of the tragic fire that cost the life of his wife and the children’s mother, leaving his heart as monstrously disfigured as his face.
As Charlotte’s warm bond with the children grows the cold aloofness of their embittered father seems even more pronounced until one night, seemingly out of the blue, gentle Charlotte is invited to join the family for their evening meal…
Can Mr Spencer’s heart truly be healed? And will Charlotte’s growing compassion for this noble but broken man remain unrequited?
