An innocent man accused…

But as Charity hunts for the truth, she begins to uncover secrets over a decade old—secrets that will change everything.
A very thoughtful and heart wrenching story set in Cornwall early 1800's. This has everything you need for an immersive story that is full of family drama, secrets and a murder. I enjoyed the slow pace of the book and really enjoyed reading about the character and the well researched historical fiction story. I did enjoy forbidden romance and family intrigue but this one with the addition of a community that is quick to blame and judge was very well written. As a person in the medical field I always like to read about the incorporation of medical - in this case mental health and PTSD - very well written for this character. This is not just a sad story this one is also a love story that will give you hope which I found to be a fascinating read. This is a very well written book that I enjoyed reading about and I recommend.
Thank you to the author for the opportunity to read this book.
