Review

--A LIBRARY JOURNAL BEST ROMANCE of 2020--

"Matthews spins a moving friends-to-lovers Victorian romance that stands out for its sensitive portrayal of a heroine living with depression at a time when the condition was misunderstood...Historical romance fans won't want to miss this."
-Publishers Weekly, STARRED review

"A compassionate treatment of a heroine with a condition not commonly addressed in the historical romance subgenre. This, combined with Mark's romantic gestures toward Beryl, results in a kindhearted love story that will delight anyone who longs to be loved without limits. Highly recommended."
-Library Journal, STARRED review

"A romance that is built on empathy and trust...the author deftly addresses the importance of bringing mental health treatments out of the shadows."
-Kirkus Reviews

"Profoundly moving, tender and lovely, it's one of the best books I've read this year."
-All About Romance (Desert Isle Keeper)

"A must-read for all Victorian historical romance fans." 
-Readers' Favorite

"If you love historical romance, you'll love this book." -

"Beautiful, poignant, heartfelt, moving and deeply romantic. Mimi Matthews has never impressed me more...and that's saying something."
-Relz Reviewz

"This might just be Mimi Matthews' best book yet....An amazing, inspiring, heartwarming read."
-Jane Porter, New York Times bestselling author

"Wonderfully poignant, intelligent, and one of my favorite novels of the year."
-Elizabeth Camden, RITA and Christy Award-winning author

"A gentle, beautiful love story... With a delicate touch, Matthews offers a timeless parable about loving and accepting others for who they are, flaws and all."
-Clarissa Harwood, author of Impossible Saints

"A tender, delicate love story that effortlessly transports the reader to another era. Highly recommended!"
-Sarah Ladd, bestselling author of The Cornwall Novels
