This book is written by a Scot and published in the United Kingdom. It is a feel good story showing first how frail is human nature and the secrets and doubts many of us harbor, and the belief that if we believe there is help for all.
Did you ever get a book that you wanted and then held onto it without reading it because then it would be over too soon? I held onto this book until I found the second, The Silver Coin, in the set. And then I held onto them both a little longer. I love reading about England in the 1800s and about the strength of women in that time period and country despite what they had stacked against them. I am also an incurable romantic. When I finally read these two books, I was not disappointed. They were wonderful. If you want to become absorbed in the characters and lives of a novel, I strongly recommend both of these books for your reading pleasure.
