This is an introduction to a full length novel, The Darkest Summer. I enjoyed this short and revelatory novella. The dynamics of the Douglas family are introduced and it is a life filled with pain and abuse.

I loved Lady Hester. In spite of the horrible circumstances she was raised in, she is a woman of honor and compassion. She is also not one to be lured by the trappings of title an wealth.

Alasdair Gilchrist, the widowed minister that Hester has grown to love, is also a man of compassion and integrity. Somehow he must overcome the difference in their social standing to be with the woman he has grown to care for.

I loved that this was short and sweet and carried a lot of information in it. It is not necessary to read this before "The Darkest Summer", but it gives a background that helps the reader understand the nature of of the Douglas family and what they have had to overcome.

I received a copy of this book from Instafreebie.
