She wants a new life.
He’s in danger of losing his.
Will love solve everything — or immerse them in even worse peril?

Restless and ready for a change, Grace Stratton gladly accepts the opportunity to leave her remote parsonage home to serve as a wealthy spinster’s companion in the idyllic country town of Lindenfell. Its warm atmosphere and friendly inhabitants sooth Grace’s lonely heart. But when a mysterious stranger arrives, she soon discovers things aren’t always what they seem.

Convinced chloroform will revolutionise the medical world, Dr. David Carbury frequently administers it to his London patients — until one of them dies. Facing a grave trial to prove his innocence and defend a drug most people view as poisonous, he makes hasty plans to buy time to bolster his case. But he wasn’t expecting to face an even deadlier challenge.

As attraction sparks not long after they meet, Grace soon suspects he’s hiding something, and David knows he can’t run from the truth forever.

But neither of them could imagine the sinister threat lurking just around the corner…

Immersed in faith and intrigue, this Christian Victorian romance from award-winning author Edwina Kiernan will encourage and delight you long after you turn the last page.



Grace jutted her jaw outwards. “It simply maddens me, that is all. Treating you as though you are some dangerous, out-of-the-ordinary spectacle. Have they not read their Bibles? Are they unaware that sin has tainted everyone’s life — including their own?”

“Hush, now...” her mother said gently, compassion shining in her dark eyes that looked so much like Grace’s own. “I suppose my story is out-of-the-ordinary as far as most people are concerned. But there is no profit in allowing anyone to judge us or intimidate us concerning it. Leave them, and their opinions, to God. There is much we can focus on that is far more beneficial for everyone.”

Her mother’s wise words soothed Grace’s heart, much as they always did. But she still struggled to shake off the melancholy that had seemed to be a permanent fixture in her heart these past few months.

A restless rumination seemed to occupy her days more and more of late. Secretly, she often imagined going somewhere new, a place where no one knew her — or the scandalous circumstances that had brought her parents together. A place where she could be her own person, and not merely the daughter of a former prostitute and the man who had rescued her from a life of vice.

Her father greeted them both with a grin. “Shall we go?”

Grace looked around, surprised to see that they were the only people left in the little church.
