Summary

Fans of Catherine Cookson and Helen Forrester will love this.

Endless years of a lonely, childless spinster’s life stretching ahead, Victoria Kavanagh finds an abandoned baby. She knows it’s the answer to her prayers. Or is it? Has she stolen him in a moment of madness? She’s come close to it before....

Desperate to keep him, she creates a past of her own design and moves to Faredene, but is her new life far enough away from the past she’s trying to escape? What a framework on which to build - one of lies and deceit. 

Thrust into a world where men are vying for her attention, Victoria has to decide in whom to lay her trust. Can she learn to have faith in her own judgement? First, she must forgive herself for standing by while her father destroyed her mother - her private shame. 

Unprepared for the challenges of motherhood and running her own business, whatever the future holds, there’s no turning back. Caring for people comes at a cost, and her desire to protect a friend sets off a chain of events that has repercussions for everyone whose lives she touches.... Her meddling may just be her undoing. 

When danger threatens her son, Victoria has to make a heartbreaking choice - but is she ready to let him go?

Great Listen

I was drawn into this book through the narration which managed to capture the characters immediately. There were some gruesome parts in the story but realistic of the age about which it was written. Overall a good story with likeable main characters. Emotional at times but well worth a read.

A charming book with an unexpected twist!

Beautifully narrated story. Accents and characters spot on. A very enjoyable listen until the very last chapter...look forward to listening to more in the Faredene saga.

Wonderful book

I amnot usually a fan of historical romances, but I really enjoyed this book. It emphasized family isn't only blood ties, but who you choose that matters the most. This book is set in the late 1800's and yet the evils of this world remain just as brutal as today.This book ends in a cliffhanger .

Ms. Lee the narrator did an amazing job of voicing various European accents. She provided a proper Enish accent for the characters of wealth and importance and slang for the impoverished. I need to listen to the next book in the series.
