say it hearkens to mind the work of Jane Austen doesn't do it complete justice. It's just that good! But for Austen fans--this book is for you.
With a deft hand that painted vivid settings, so much heart and faith, Ms. Mendenhall has started off her Triangular Trade Trilogy with a fantastic first installment in Annette and Peter's story. What can often be a difficult balance within a historical romance--two individual characters' journies plus an engaging romance--Ms. Mendenhall strikes a chord with each storyline. And so very much warmed my heart with their romance at the same time. Getting to be a part of Annette and Peter's journies was immensely special--their character development, the struggles they faced and overcame were spectacularly written. I cannot wait to see what the next two books in the trilogy bring. Definitely an author to watch.
Fans of Kristi Ann Hunter, Jane Austen and The Bronte Sisters will love this novel!

Since her assault, Miss Annette Chetwynd has been plagued by nightmares and worries about an arranged marriage. But she yearns to find her anonymous rescuer.
