ABOUT THE BOOK
Seth Braxton, a patriot of the American Revolution, unexpectedly inherits his loyalist grandfather's estate in England. Seth is torn between the land he fought for and the prospect of reuniting with his sister Caroline, who was a motherless child taken to England at the onset of the war.
With no intention of staying permanently, Seth arrives to find his sister grieving over the death of her young son. In the midst of such tragedy, Seth meets Juleah, the daughter of an eccentric landed gentleman. Her independent spirit and gentle soul steal Seth's heart. After a brief courtship, they marry and she takes her place as the lady of Ten Width Manor, enraging the man who once sought her hand and schemed to make Ten Width his own. From the Virginia wilderness to the dark halls of an isolated English estate, Seth and his beloved Juleah inherit more than an ancestral home. They uncover a sinister plot that leads to murder, abduction, and betrayal--an ominous threat to their new life, love, and faith.

I just finished this book last night and I really enjoyed it. As I have mentioned before Historical is my favourite genre. This book had the historical element along with intrigue. I loved the difference between Seth the American Patriot and the English. Loved how the class issue is different in the different continents. Juleah was a wonderful heroine who wanted to marry for love not position add to the equation a brooding step son and you have an interesting mix. I loved the prologue which sets up some characters and there personalities for later in the novel which added to the story also. Great historical intrigue I would give 5 out of 5.
