Overview

Driven away from England by scandal, a woman returns to confront a danger to protect the only family she has left. From bestselling author Katherine Kingsley.

“A timeless tale of the miracle of true love which conquers all, heals all, and makes all new again. Add interesting characters, unexpected plot twists, and a touch of the supernatural, and the result is a memorable, feel-good read.” – All About Romance

Despite having been driven from aristocratic English society in disgrace, Joanna is resolved to return to England after the death of her beloved cousin, Lydia. She is a woman on a mission, determined to rescue Lydia’s son from his father, the man Joanna suspects is responsible for Lydia’s untimely death. Guy de Salis, Marquess of Greaves, seems to be capable of anything.

Joanna’s wit and passion leave Guy feeling uneasy. Despite his own misgivings, he invites her to be his son’s governess, an invitation Joanna warily accepts in order to better protect her family. What neither expected was to see the boy bloom under Joanna’s care, or for love to blossom in the most unlikely of circumstances.

“A true gem…a sheer delight. Guy is possibly one of the best heroes I’ve read in years and you won’t want to miss THE SOUND OF SNOW. I treasured every word.” – The Book Nook

    Definatly a keeper!!!

    I loved this book! I fell in love with Guy. This is one of the most truelly emotional books I have ever read. It was a rollercoaster of pain and happiness. This book shows that love can surpass whatever curve-balls are thrown it's way. This goes on my Keeper Shelf right next to a box of tissues!

    Touchy, Lovely and Encouraging...

    Jo and Guy's romance didn't actually begin till the middle of the book, I thought I would get bored and skipped pages till I get to this part but I was mistaken, I enjoyed the slow-flowing development of their relationship. Slow but not lacking. Slow yet definitely detailed. 'TIME' made them more convincing to me. Contrary to what others think, that style, considering the plot, made me appreciate their love for each other all the more. Guy and Jo... now there is really love between them! The circumstances they were both in made them stronger together. Their situation led them both to trust and rely on each other. They compensated each others weaknesses. It became a special forming BOND, so strong in fact, that 'that' heart rending twist towards the end truly pulled me in. Very dramatic, yes. But not OVERLY in my opinion. Aside from the main characters, I enjoyed ALL secondary characters. From Miles all the way to the servants of Wakefield. They are indeed an added spices to the story. All were wonderfully implemented. Heck, I even felt sorry for Lydia instead of hating her. She is the villain yet a victim of jealousy as well. Sad! This is where I appreciated Ms. Kingsley's talent for words. I think she doesn't want her readers to feel HATE in the end of the book. She wanted us to understand & forgive the villain. To feel sad for her instead...despite the misgivings. I have many favorite scenes in this book, to mention a few... The servants interactions and love for Jo was a smiler. Miles transformation was one of my favorite, very heart warming. Guy's reaching out to his son is also a teary moment. But most of all, I love the religious part of this book, the power of FAITH & Trust in God. Accepting His will even if not understanding it. It encourages readers to keep in touch with their spirituality. Oh, I must mention that this religious belief is not overly mentioned. It's sporadically inserted and in my opinion, placed at the right moment. I am not very fond of paranormal incidents. However, in this book, the supernatural appearances seems touchy and significant. Perhaps it is just the way it's written. Ms. Kingsley words touched my heart, my soul. I do believe in 'ANGELS'. I think they do watch over us, guide us & enlightened us if needed. They come in many forms & in many ways. One just need to look closely and believe! One must listen beyond the silence and look beyond the mountains... Also, In my opinion, the ending was beautifully writtened. I was touched (once again) reading that one scene in the chapel with brother Michael (read to know what I mean). I agree that people need inner peace to feel complete happiness. Overall, this book begins with betrayal, misconceptions, deceits & hatred. But the finale is full of LOVE, understanding and forgiveness --- not only for one special person but for everyone around us. May they be a King or Servant. May they be your Spouse or a Stranger. This book will also make you appreciate Love & Life as God's gift to us.
