What it’s about:
From the back cover/publisher:
“Her secret cloaks herin isolation and loneliness. His secret traps him in a life that is not hisown.

Darbury, England, 1819

Cecily Faire carries the shame of her past wherever she treads, knowing one slip ofthe tongue could expose her disgrace. But soon after becoming a lady’scompanion at Willowgrove Hall, Cecily finds herself face-to-face with a manwell-acquainted with the past she’s desperately hidden for years.

Nathaniel Stanton has a secret of his own—one that has haunted him for years and tied him to his father’s position as steward of Willowgrove Hall. To protect his family,Nathaniel dares not breathe a word of the truth. But as long as the shadow looms over him, he’ll never be free to find his own way in the world. He’llnever be free to fall in love.

When the secrets swirling within Willowgrove Hall come to light, Cecily and Nathaniel must confront a painful choice: Will they continue running from the past . . . or will they stand together and fight for a future without the suffocating weight of secrets long kept?”

My thoughts:
I love reading books that take place in this time period (1819), no matter where it takes place, of course it is a magical setting when it takes place in England during this time period! I found A Lady at Willowgrove Hall to be both beautifully written and well written. It was easy to picture the settings and the characters as I was reading. I did find it little slow at times and a bit hard to get into emotionally for me personally . There was a good message/theme, well actually a couple, that were conveyed throughout this book.

This is the 3rd book in this series.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
