About the Book
Patience Creighton will finally find the peace she lost years ago--if she can open her heart and forgive the man who loves her.

Bright, sensible Patience knows what is expected of her. At twenty-five, her opportunity for a family of her own has passed, so she finds contentment teaching at her father's school for girls. When her father dies suddenly and her brother moves away to London, she is determined to keep her father's dream alive.

Confirmed bachelor William Sterling also knows what is expected of him, but mistake after mistake has left him teetering on ruin's edge. As master of Eastmore Hall he owns a great deal of land but possesses little money to manage the upkeep. He is desperate to find a new source of income, including the sacrifice of land connected to Rosemere.

When her brother returns with a new wife to take over management of the school, Patience is heartbroken to no longer be responsible for her beloved school and is forced to reassess God's purpose for her life. After her sister-in-law's matchmaking brings Patience and William together, they both learn new truths about their character and find a common goal in restoring Eastmore's legacy.(Goodreads)




 My Review

While not as good as the Heiress of Winterwood, the first book in the series, this was still a delightful read. The setting is beautiful and I like how Patience takes charge of her home and teaching the girls at the school. She has a lot on her shoulders and as each new trial arrives she must trust in God that He knows what is best. The love story is sweet and probably the best part of the book.The characters have a lot of depth but I really liked William's character the most.

If you really enjoyed the first book or just love the Regency time period you will enjoy this book!
