Vera Fenwick is everything a vicar’s sister should be — helpful, modest and sensible. She knows the perils of falling for a man above her station, but it does no harm to admire Edmund Herriott, Lord Meriweather — from afar. She’s perfectly content to help him restore the local rectory … and she’s much too reasonable to risk her heart.
Working alongside Vera to rebuild the church and foil a smuggling ring is restoring the confidence Edmund lost in battle. Vera may be sure she’s not suited to be an aristocrat’s wife, but Edmund is utterly confident of one thing — that this unexpected love was built to last.
