'John Laslett has just arrived in Green Valley as the new parish minister, employed by the patron, Lady Vera Wallace. At first it seems that the grand lady is full of grace and her intention is to see to his every need. However, there is something strange about the housekeeper she has sent. Kate is efficient in every detail, but John cannot seem to break through the cold exterior. Something is wrong, he is sure, but he doesn't know what ... Kate has a secret she doesn't want anyone to know, especially the hateful new minister–the man who has taken her father's place.'

'It has been fourteen years since the end of the Great War, and Grace doesn’t think she will ever get over losing the love of her life. She is a committed spinster aunt, despite her mother’s attempts to introduce her to eligible bachelors. When a stranger comes to town looking for work, her mother is immediately alert to possibilities. Grace admits he is handsome, but their first encounter was enough to put her off him for life.

'Alex has been on the road with his three children for nearly two years, looking for work where he could find it. Times are tough and work hard to come by. Charlie Shore gave him hope he would find something long term — as long as it doesn’t involve Charlie’s sister, another opportunistic spinster looking for a man. He’s not going to fall for it.

'Things change when circumstances throw Alex and Grace together to survive.

'But Alex has a secret that could destroy them all. And now Grace has a secret—one that won’t stay hidden.

'This new title is part of the very popular 'Heart of Green Valley' series. Australian, New Zealand and British readers connected well with the author's characters, setting and stories. Though part of a series, this book and all books in the series read as stand-alone novels.' (Publication summary)
