Summary

From the national bestselling author, a Regency “filled with the strong spirituality that has become a hallmark of Ms. Kingsley’s romances” (Romantic Times).   Louisa Merriem is in danger of losing her farm after her husband dies in the war at Waterloo. When she places an ad looking for help, she never expects someone as handsome and mysterious as Will Cutter to arrive on her doorstep. Unsure of whether this stranger is trustworthy, Louisa is left with little choice if she wants to save her farm.   Mistaken for a common worker, Maj. Lord William Fitzpatrick doesn’t know how to confess his identity to Louisa, the widow of his best friend and comrade in arms. Despite falling in love with her after reading the letters she’d sent her husband, he means only to pay his respects. But committed now to saving her farm, he wants more than just her trust, hoping the vulnerable widow will learn to love again.   “This beautiful romance, obviously written from the heart, will have you believing in love . . . and the presence of angels.” —Old Book Barn Gazette   “An emotionally stirring Regency romance that reaches deep-down inside and touches the reader’s soul.” —Stardust “Sprinklings” of Romance
