Book Summary:

In the sprawling gardens of their neighboring estates, childhood friends Miles and Elise spent countless pleasant days together in the spirited adventures of youth. They were inseparable—until Elise vanished without a trace. Miles searched, but Elise could not—or would not—be found . . .

After years spent laboring on the family plantation in the West Indies, Miles Linwood is shocked by the unexpected news: he has inherited his uncle’s estate and the title of Marquess of Grenton. Miles’s return to England is tarnished by only one thing—he is still haunted by Elise’s mysterious disappearance. So when he glimpses a woman with a startling resemblance to his lost friend, he’s shaken to the core. This is no mere shadow of the past: it is truly Elise. But his dear friend has changed—to the point that he questions whether it is really her, though he knows it is. Accustomed to rescuing Elise from childhood escapades, Miles takes her and those in her care back to his estate, even as he struggles to understand her fear and mistrust. As their friendship and feelings slowly blossom again, the shocking truth of their separated years is revealed, and Miles realizes more than ever that he must protect Elise. She slipped away once, and he cannot lose her again.


Cheryls review


I just read a beautiful new updated version of this story that will be released this month. Love the new cover. Sarah Eden’s books always capture my heart and draw me in. The main characters have a priceless relationship that has undergone a horrible strain. Trying to overcome the tragedy that came into their lives proves difficult. There is a mystery woven in the storyline that adds depth and suspense to the story. I love both Miles and Elise. I love the way they cherish one another. I enjoy the fun, spunky supporting characters too. As always I look forward to more by Sarah M. Eden.
