When Jeremy returns he is furious with his brother, still desirous of Miranda, yet both cannot get past the perceived betrayal...through tons of misunderstandings, miscommunication, and loads of love for a sweet little girl...as well as dealing with a mebtally unstable, interfering and dangerous mother...Jeremy and Miranda navigate their way through a maze of doubt, confusion and mistrust and find their way right back where they started...to the place it all began, where they fell in love, and when the facts of that night meet the harsh light of day...and the unraveling of a teensy case of mistaken identity, or two come to light...these two characters wind up exactly where they should have been all along...in love, together, and living happily ever after. And I loved the entire journey!
A chance meeting of Miranda and John, Jeremy's brother, led to the offer of employment for the destitute, newly-widowed Miranda. The job? Caring for a nine year old girl, the by-blow of the old earl and one of his mistresses. The girl, however, is blind, and has been since the night her home was destroyed by fire. The mistress died in the fire; the child survived without obvious injury, but unable to see. Caring for the child was the inevitable cause of Miranda and Jeremy once again meeting up.
The story was satisfyingly complex and did not totally hinge on the tired trope of two people who did not communicate. There were misunderstandings, to be sure, but I felt they were understandable, given the situations.
The mood in the book resembles a Gothic novel, brooding and mysterious. The reader knows there will be twists and turns and braces for them, yet they still surprise you when they happen.
I liked Miranda and Jeremy as the heroine and hero; they were not cookie-cutter characters, but each had depth and personality.
The author showed a great knowledge of the time era. Great detail was put into descriptions of clothing, manners, furnishings, etc., as well as language and word usage. I felt transported.
The novel ended with a hint to a possible sequel/series. If there is, I look forward to another, because this book was highly satisfying on all fronts!
