This is the final book in the Hawthorne series; in this book, we concentrate on Griffith, Duke of Riverton, who thrives on order, logic, and control and he applies this tactic when he decides to search for a bride. He's certain Miss Frederica St. Claire is the perfect wife for him but Frederica who has her sights set on another, is always setting up ways to put her beautiful cousin in Griffith’s company.
Isabella Breckenridge should be enjoying her society debut, but with her family in difficult circumstances, her uncle will only help them if she'll use her beauty to assist him in his political goals. And sent for Isabella to come to London for this season’s society debut.
Griffith, the main character in this book, and the Duke, the head of the family through the series, is the main theme in this book. Griffith. takes his role as head of the Hawthorne line seriously while loving God and his family and being likable at the same time. Like all of us, Griffith struggles with taking control of every aspect of his life, and he sees that matters of the heart cannot be completely planned out according to our will.
As in the other books in this series, you will be drawn into the family, their struggles, and triumphs and thoroughly enjoy every word.
Well written, easy to read, those who love historical fiction will love this book.
