ABOUT THE BOOK

Pearl's Promise
Title: Pearl's Promise 
Series: Gems of Grace #2 
Author: Edwina Kiernan 
Publisher: Moliant Publishing 
Release Date: May 1, 2021 
Genre: Christian Historical Romance 

A duty-bound heir. A dejected spinster. An encounter that could ruin both their families' demands for their futures... 

Horrified to see the man she had always dreamed of marrying saying his vows to someone else, Pearl Acton’s devastation only seems to confirm one of her deepest fears - that she’ll remain unseen and alone, never mattering to anyone. 

And when her family falls on hard times and seeks to marry her off to a wealthy suitor as soon as possible, her other deepest fear seems inevitable - being trapped in a loveless marriage, just like her parents. 

Until an encounter with a quiet and soulful heir, Nicholas Dalton, sparks a fragile hope that perhaps Pearl might save her family’s fortune and marry for love. 

But when circumstances on both sides of their families take drastic turns, the promise of happiness seems irrevocably shattered. 

As Pearl and Nicholas each strive to uphold their family duties, they soon discover that things aren’t quite what they seem. But is it too late to escape their crushing obligations and forge a new path - together? 

Review:
An engaging regency romance, with a winsome heroine, a reserved but dashing hero, both with obligations to their families that stand in the way of them being together. 

I loved how the Maxwell's take Pearl under their wings, to help her navigate society during a season. They are a warm and welcoming older couple, like a second set of parents to Pearl, and a wonderful example of faith and love in a marriage. There is a lot going on with all of the events and social gatherings, as Pearl's parents push her ever closer to an unwanted match. 

Overall, this is a well written and entertaining Regency Era romance, with a well paced plot, as well as excellent and endearing characters. Nicholas is a more reserved man, respectful, but he also knows when to make a statement. He is a man of faith, with a kind heart, open to new ideas and is supportive of Pearl throughout. Perfect read for fans of regency romance!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
