Loved this book. Absolutely loved it. I found it to be a different style of writing in comparison to many other books I had read, but for some reason, this style totally worked for this story.

First off, the story is about Adelaide Bell and Trent Hawthorne who have found themselves married in short time. All because they were alone overnight in the broken remains of a house, and they don’t even know one another! But yet, marriage is proposed and accepted to save face for Adelaide.

From here, the story goes and we are introduced to Adelaide and Trent. We are given insight to theirs thoughts, worries and joys, while at the same time the confusion that they face within this match not quite made in heaven. There is not a lot of dialogue, but yet, there is just enough. The story weaves together as both individuals try to find their places in this thing called marriage. While at the same time, Adelaide struggles to figure out just who she is, other than the one who is her sister Helena’s shadow.

This is a book where I would say it is a symphony of words, brought together in such a lovely tune that I want to read more of this couple and not to say the least, more of the author. Well done, I say, well done!

The good thing about this book, is that even though it is part of a series, the Hawthorne House, I did not find myself lost at any point. It’s only after I’m researching the author that I realized that i have already read the story about Georgina and her own marriage in An Elegant Facade ( back in July, 2016.

I received this book complimentary from Bethany House publishers in exchange for an honest review.
