Publisher's Summary

Four years ago, Alex, a second son, had planned a life together with Lady Patience. However, when Patience was betrothed to his brother, the heir, Alex left his family's estate and joined the military. Alex returns to assume the title Duke of Bedford when his brother unexpectedly dies. He is unprepared for both his new responsibilities and the reunion with Patience. The horrors of war are a heavy burden, and when he learns that Patience never married his brother, he is stunned.

Patience withstood the bullying of her fiance and her father for four long years. She refuses to marry Alex just because he's the duke, especially if he no longer loves her. How would that be better than what she has already endured? Promises made in their youth are not enough to overcome the changes life has wrought for them, but love can grow and transform - if only Patience could believe that.

Contains mature themes.

Slow and Stupid

I like the normal cliche of this genre but come on. The plot had potential but it was slow and the heroine was ridiculous. I wish the guy wouldnt have married her. He was too good for her.

Producer needs to help

The story was a really good , telling stories about abuse and overcoming their problems. But the producer should choose a narrator the matches the book. Charlotte would be wonderful for children’s books.
