The Duke of Finchester spotted the mysterious Countess at the market when she stopped a shopkeeper from beating a starving child for stealing a loaf of bread. Although unable to see her face, Charles heard her name whispered in the crowd and wanted to meet the brave noblewoman who interceded to save a child but had left before he could introduce himself. He did not trust women since the betrayal of his first wife but the Countess had an air of innocence and nobility that was intriguing.
This was a lovely romance with some mystery; another wonderful historical romance by Fanny Finch. I especially liked the extended epilogue offered at the end of the book.
I voluntarily received a copy of this book and I'm voluntarily posted a review. My opinion is entirely my own. I have now purchased the book.
Charles Duncan, Duke of Finchester has also been widowed for three years and has also been subjected to rumors.
Charles and Eleanor meet at the market when she saves a child from the ire of the grocer when the child is caught stealing food. She believes that she saved a young boy 👦 until Charles tells her that the child is a girl that she has decided to take into her home.
Charles and Eleanor meet socially and feelings grow between them until Charles begins to mistrust his feelings because of his marriage to Elise and her infidelity.
Eleanor's stepmother has never treated James's children with anything but contempt since marrying their father and has done all that she can to turn him against them. Sarah comes up with a plan to destroy anything between Charles and Eleanor because Eleanor's first marriage set her socially above herself and she doesn't want her to have a better life.

Don't waste your time or money. And Fanny Finch? Get a competent researcher and editor.
Having suffered tragedy after tragedy, Eleanor Ashford is but a shadow of her former self. Now, the widowed Countess of Grenshire reluctantly re-enters the world and returns to London, only to discover that the malicious whispers about her have not yet abated. At an unfortunate event at the market, however, she meets a man that jolts her heart back to life.
Charles Duncan, the widower Duke of Finchester, has vowed to take his secret to the grave. He has shut his heart to the world, until the beauty and sadness of the one they call the Night Rose pierces through him like the sweetest thorn.
Through the grief, the secrets and the lies, two broken people seek to make the ruins of their lives blossom, and build something anew.
But a hateful soul is determined to prevent that, and they will stop at nothing to see them destroyed…
This is such a beautifully written story.
This is the story of Charles and Eleanor.
These two have suffered the tragedy of losing their apouses a few years back.
They meet each other by chance in a London Market. This of course sets the gossip tongues wagging even though they have done nothing wrong.
Also there appears to be someone who does not want these two together at all.
We have loads of twists and turns but also some villans to contend with.
A very emotional story and I loved it.
I highly recommend it.
I received a review copy from the very talented author and I voluntarily reviewed it.
The author has a very patchy knowledge of the etiquette of the era, and a decidedly modern and/or American turn of phrase, which continually detracted from the plot.
She often mixed thee and you in the same paragraph which was very irritating - it was almost as though she felt a sprinkling of arcane words would magically cement the story in its alleged historic setting.
It wasn’t absolutely awful, but a decent (and preferably English) editor would have improved it enormously, and cut out stupid errors like referring to English gentry eating caribou stew!!
Charles was betrayed by his first wife and now he was afraid when something wonderful looked him full in the face. I received this book for free and voluntarily reviewed.
