    Morgan Grambling Pearce reluctantly agreed, for Ronald Palfry's sake, to leave London behind for three weeks. Morgan felt he had too much to do, with his sister, Kitty, due to marry Lord Waverly in about four short weeks, running Grambling House Publishing Company, and seeking out bed partners at night. But Ronald felt Morgan owed him this. Ronald thought he had saved Morgan's life during the war. The least Morgan could do was travel to Palfry Park in Windermere and help his father with his memoirs. After all, General Sir Janus Palfry was a war hero many times over. His stories of the times he spent in the Colonies of America, India, and all the famous people he knew would sell like mad. But Sir Janus was long-winded in his writing and needed help to edit it down. Thus Morgan found himself as a guest as Sir Janus's estate. .............................. Morgan had been at Palfry Park a couple of weeks when he crashed into a Bath chair, literally. The lady within the chair seemed paralyzed and could do little more than stay where she was propped and be waited on hand and foot. Suddenly, Morgan found himself wanting to help the veiled lady, no matter how ill tempered she seemed or how often she flat out told him to leave her alone! ............................. Miranda Runyon was a victim of a coaching accident that took her parents' lives over three years ago. Even though she has a fine estate on the Cornish coast called Nasrannah, Miranda cannot bring herself to return to the place where such wonderful memories of when her parents were alive and she was not crippled. Instead, she remained at Palfry Park, the home of her father's cousin, Sir Janus. Problem was that Sir Janus, his wife, and his two daughters pretended that Miranda did not exist. Alice and Mrs. Southey were hired as Miranda's caretakers, with orders to keep her hidden whenever they had house guests. It was pure chance that Morgan found her and made it his business to spend a little time each morning with her, without the rest of the family knowing. Whether she liked it or not, Miranda began looking forward to his visits and blunt speaking. With Morgan's help, perhaps Miranda could begin to recover the use of her lifeless limbs and have a reason to keep living. But first, she must face some hard truths about herself. ........................... ***** I will start off by stating that in all the years I have read regency romances, this is one of the very best I have ever come across! Author Nancy Butler does not give wimpy heroines or have love neatly fall into place. Instead, she creates realistic characters who act as I would expect real people to react if they found themselves in these situations! I came to care very much for Miranda. I understood how and why she felt as she did. I understood why she was so bitter. At the same time I could understand Morgan's side, his reasons for all he did. I cheered Miranda as she found the courage to attempt what doctors said she could never achieve. And just as real live, it was not easy or fast. It took hard work and determination. Through the talent of this awesome author, I got a peek into the lives of some amazing people. The only thing I hated was seeing the book end. I could not stop thinking about it or the characters in it for a long time afterwards. ................................ Nancy Butler's talent shines brighter than a sunny day at the beach! All of her books are wonderful and well written. But in my humble opinion, this book is the best thus far! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! *****

    A touching story that will warm your heart.....

    Morgan Pearce was only fulfilling a false debt when he journeyed to assist General Janus Palfry write the story of his life. Little did Morgan know that hidden on the grounds of the Palfry residence lived a secret. A secret hidden away from everyone outside the family and also ignored by all the residents of Windermere. Miranda Runyon was once a happy, spunky, and creative young woman...until a carriage accident that took the lives of her parents and left her scarred, crippled, and paralyzed. In the memory of her family, the General tucked her away and two servants took care of her, but what a horribly lonely life she had. Until Morgan Pearce found her and saw what was hiding underneath Miranda's steely inner guard. With time and patience, Miranda began to live again and Morgan realized he was making a difference in her life. But is their future to be more than just friends? Well-written secondary characters of Morgan's sister Kitty and his battle-scarred friend Phillip, who used to be in love with Kitty, add to the fullness of the story. Phillip, like Miranda, suffers from terrible injuries and turned away from Kitty because he felt like half a man. Can they both find the love they had before the war? You will not put this book down until you read the last word - excellent storyline...don't miss it!
