If you're looking for a good clean love story, try this one. Takes place in the early 1900s, in England. An American heiress who walks with a limp due to a childhood illness is taken by her mother to England to snag a titled husband. The heiress, has low self esteem in finding a love match due to her deformity. She'd much rather spend her time and money helping her cousin back in New York with his orphanage for deformed children. She reluctantly goes to England and decides she'll just be herself to discourage suitors. Little does she know the financially strapped British don't give a hoot about her or her deformity. All they desire is her fortune. The hero is a man who knows he must marry but would rather serve his country and route out traitors , who want to sell information to Germany, to the crown. Marriage would interfere with his mission in life. Not looking for love both the hero and heroine do just that.
Enjoyable read and I will. look into more works from this author.

MessyReviewed in the United States on 8 January 2019
I know this is fiction but this is so unbelievable. Wish I'd been informed of the religious theme. Ridiculous. Selective about my reading. This was a waste.

FantasticReviewed in the United States on 23 July 2019
Stacy Henrie is my new favorite author. This book was absolutely fantastic. Just a lovely romantic, intriguing read and exquisitely written. I am not a snobby reader, I read all genres, so I can safely say that it was refreshing when Gwen's faith in God was clearly the theme throughout the book. I noticed from some of the more negative reviews that this was an issue for some people, but I found it refreshing, and personally I wish there were more authors that were not afraid to express their faith. I highly recommend this book.

I would never have survivedReviewed in the United States on 27 December 2018
This is a time period that blows my mind. Don't get me wrong. I love reading about it, but I never would have survived the courting process and the meddling mothers. To think that her family thought she had to go to a different continent to find a husband because of a bad foot is insane! What a good story. I really enjoyed it. She is relatable even if her circumstances were not. I look forward to the other books by this author. What's not to like ? Angst, mystery, love, friendship, trust and confusion. Its a hit! Lol

A good hero who finds there is more to lifeReviewed in the United States on 14 January 2019
The characters were well-developed throughout the story. Our hero was a decent, ethical man, and thought he was doing okay, but realizes something is missing. The heroine has desires that she thinks are what God wants her to do, but experiences disappointments. Mystery enough to keep the story moving and the scenery of London brought in enough to make it believable. I gave it five stars because Ms. Henrie did a wonderful job of making us aware of the attraction between the hero and heroine without just the physical attraction.
