The story is set in 1893, when a woman was considered the property of either her husband or her father. The story is about a woman who escapes domestic abuse and tries to move on.
Lily runs away when she thinks she accidentally killed her husband by hitting him over the head with a lamp when he was choking Toby.
Parts of the story are a little evasive to keep the audience guessing . As a result; I thought Lily's husband, Tobias,was actually still alive because Lily didn't check for a pulse to see if he was dead.
I also thought it was weird that Lily thought she would go to jail for defending herself and her son. I didn't really like the male lead, Edric.
I'm a sucker for whump stories and this was 110% one. We have the terrified heroine doing the best she can for her beloved son, and we have probably one of the kindest, most understanding heroes in the world ever. I loved the story, the kindness of the people in this town the heroines runs off to, the strength of the heroine despite the horrible trauma that continues to affect both her and her child. I will admit that her son got a little irritating for me at times but I can and will admit that his actions/reactions were very understandable considering the horrors he went through in his young life
Warning: Physical abuse is described in one scene, mentioned a few other times and happens in the form of the leading lady being grabbed by the arms, wrist & hand and having them squeezed to the point of pain.
This is a sweet, squeaky clean, Christian, historical romance that is very well edited.

Edric is the towns law man he has two daughters and his Papa lives with them and takes care of the children when Eric is working.
Good story I enjoyed reading this. Personally I don’t like the abuse the two suffered but after they flee its better.
