The first novel in Hunter's new Haven Manor series is both gripping and heartwarming at the same time. It is fascinating to read about these situations, which have so many parallels to the present day, yet because this book is set in the 1800s, it has more impact and can be quite challenging to the reader. Hunter communicates her storyline with such grace and passion, showing light on God's mercy and how He can restore any broken situation for His glory.

When Graham, Lord Wharton, encounters a mysterious woman at a ball, he is intrigued because she seems so different from the other women. She resists all attempts at communication, but even afterward, he cannot stop thinking about her. When his friend enlists Graham to help look for his missing sister, Graham is stunned to encounter the woman again in an unexpected place. Katherine "Kit" FitzGilbert shunned London and all of its society trappings many years ago after a terrible incident. She has made it her life's mission to help women and their children live fulfilling lives even after the unspeakable happens to them. Can Graham and Kit ever see eye to eye and learn to trust and help one another? (BETHANY HOUSE, Jun., 384 pp., $14.99)
