About the Book
In Reformation-era England, a converted rogue wants to restore his honor at whatever cost. Running from a tortured past, Dirk Godfrey knows he has only one chance at redemption.
An independent Catholic maiden seeking refuge in the Low Countries finds herself at the center of the Iconoclastic Fury. Jaded by tragedy, Gwyneth’s only hope of getting home is to trust the man she hates, and she soon discovers her poor vision is not the only thing that has been blinding her.
But the home Gwyneth knew is not what she once thought. When a dark secret and a twisted plot for power collide in a castle masquerading as a haven, will the saint and the sinner hold to hope…or be overcome?

This is truly a delightful book! Beautifully written with a wit and charm that sways with each word and every swipe of page. There wasn’t a thing I didn’t like in this story. There’s a softness to Rea’s writing that pulls you in with every scene. I found myself looking forward to how the story would end, and it didn’t disappoint at all.
Rea’s voice is fresh and, a wonderful addition to the world of inspirational historical romance. This charming debut has put Rea at the top of my list. Now I’m not saying this because she’s one of my editors, but because her gift of writing and storytelling shines through in this piece. From the language, to the characters and setting—they came together to form a clear picture in my mind that was interesting to follow. If you’re a fan of Christian Historical Romance, you don’t want to miss this one!
Let me end this review by pointing out that the theme, though subtle, was quite remarkable—showing clearly that God does desire a friendship/relationship with each and every one of His children.
A prose that’s absolutely well done!
*Though I offer this review to the public, it’s my opinion and simply that. My thanks to Rachelle Rea, the author, for a free copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
