Henry Nash is hesitant to marry Rebekah to advance his political career, but when he is put in a tight spot, being found to be under suspicion for unwittingly aiding the enemy, marrying Rebekah may be the only way to save his reputation.
Rebekah overhears Henry taking with her father, and thinks that Henry is a man just like her father, looking out only for himself. Will Henry be able to prove her wrong and win her heart?
I like Henry, and he really did want to find something real with Rebekah, and makes many efforts to get to known Rebekah and learn her interests.
Rebekah's father is a tyrant, he makes a public show of being a family man, but in private he is emotionally and physically abusive towards Rebekah--he forces her to marry Henry, and gives her no choice in the matter.
I liked Rebekah and how she really wanted to be there for Henry's two daughters, she bonded with Kathleen right about and found out that they both really loved gardening. She struggles to connect with Grace, the baby, but perseveres and soon finds a place in her heart as well.
Overall, this was a very enjoyable read, I liked Henry and how he tries to be an honorable man, and he really wants to help others. he realizes his mistakes and is quick to repent and ask forgiveness, and he never gave up on Rebekah even when she wanted nothing to do with him. A well written story, with fantastic characters that capture the heart.
