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, my dear.”

Grace turned to see her father, the Reverend Henry Stratton, striding toward her. His dark eyes shimmered with delight, and his grin made her momentarily forget the frustration that had coiled her hands into tight balls at her sides.

“Papa. Another fine sermon.”

“Thank you, my dear.” He studied her for a moment, his grin slipping away. “Are you all right?”

Grace swallowed hard. Her father could read her better than anyone. “It is nothing.”

He gave her a knowing look. “Are you quite sure?”

Grace sighed, shaking her head gently. “Only the usual.”

Her father glanced about at the different clusters of people who were chatting and greeting one another now that the meeting was at an end. He drew his lips into a thin line. “Ah. I see.”

Grace followed his gaze, which seemed to have fallen upon the group of gossiping ladies at the end of the pew. She looked again at her father, gratitude stirring within her. He was gentle and kind, but a fierce streak of ardent protectiveness lay within him, and her great aunt had told her how daringly and passionately he had defended her mother. She still found all the stories she’d heard quite hard to believe sometimes, but what was clear was the deep love that each of her parents had for one another, and for God.
