With prestigious credentials such as the Laurel Wreath Award for Historical Romance
and the Aspen Gold Award for Best Inspirational Book, author Delia Parr endears
herself to critics and readers alike. Building upon that success, Parr returns with another
memorable story set in the lush outskirts of 1830s Philadelphia. Hidden Affections takes
readers deep into the matters of the human heart and the unexpected places that love
and acceptance can be found.
Betrayed by her husband, Annabelle Tyler wears the burden of legally being a divorcee, a
difficult position for an upstanding young woman to find herself in. While attempting to
start a new life, an unexpected turn of events once again has Annabelle married—this time
to Harrison Graymoor, the most eligible, yet elusive, bachelor in Philadelphia. Harrison
assures her that he will secure an annulment immediately, unaware that the constable has
sent word of the marriage to the press in Philadelphia. And here things continue to go awry.
Harrison’s past, a philanthropic cousin with his eye on Annabelle, and the appearance
of Annabelle’s ex-husband threaten the tentative relationship growing between Harrison
and his “wife.” For two individuals set against marriage, there are certainly a lot of second
thoughts regarding the one forced upon them.
An engaging and charming tale of an unlikely couple trying desperately not to fall in
love, Hidden Affections is perfect for fans of Kim Vogel Sawyer and Janette Oke.
