Publisher's Summary

A heart prepared to die that has never lived or loved...

Born with fragile health, Dawn Uxbridge has lived a sheltered existence. Her lonely days are filled by drawing fanciful landscapes and nurturing plants. When tragedy strikes, she finds herself alone and penniless with only one talent - a green thumb.

Jasper, the Earl of Seton, is in need of a gardener to reclaim his derelict estate in the remote west of England. He expected a robust commoner, not a fragile young woman.

With the next train a week away, Dawn has one chance to change the earl's mind and earn her place. But all is not as it seems at the ancestral manor. The estate is full of secrets. Ravens cluster on the parapets, and a ghostly young woman cries out at night. This garden conceals a rotten heart, and it plans to squeeze the last beat from Dawn's....

Contains mature themes.

Inconsistent and odd accent by narrator

I tried this series out since I enjoyed some of the other books by this author. The narrator made it somewhat difficult to finish as her accent was odd and somewhat inconsistent. The accent was so odd that it was distracting from the story itself. I might read the subsequent books in this series, but I won’t be listening to this narrator again.

Enjoyable and recommended

If you are like me and not a big fan of characters with magical powers, you may be as pleasantly surprised as I was by Dawn’s Promise. The story is well written and beautifully read. As a gardener, I loved that the garden was essential to Dawn’s own ordeal and growth. I look forward to listening to the next book in the series very soon.

Dawns promise

I have really enjoyed the Artifact Hunter series by this author so this was my next foray into her work. I have to say the storyline was ok it was a really slow burner. What I really struggled with was the awful pronunciation of the narrator. I will read the next couple of books in the series not listen to them!
