Home At Last
by Anita Higman
-From the back cover-
NEVER HAD A HOME
When her late employer leaves Bromfield Manor to her, Olivia feels secure for the first time in her life. The Bromfield's prodigal son returns, challenging her claim to the estate – and everything Olivia understands about family...and love.
“MANY WATERS CANNOT QUENCH LOVE.”
- Song of Songs 8:7
The woman his father left his fortune to is as beautiful as she is innocent, which is why Noah Bromfield offers to let Olivia stay while he settles his father's affairs. The closer he gets to Olivia, though, the more Noah wonders if this sweet beauty is the key to his future. But will his dark past destroy his only hope for happiness?
Home At Last is wonderful Gothic-style romance. It comes complete with a manor house and caretaker's cottage, family secrets, betrayals, a lonely woman, a man with a dark past, and even a dog that takes a little time to warm up to strangers.
Anyone that has ever read a Gothic novel will understand what I mean when I say that the over-the-top Gothicness is delightfully balanced with touches of humor. Anita Higman has managed to combine wisps of Mary Stewart's 1960's novels with light romance and lessons of confronting one's past with forgiveness.
This little book is a fast read. I was couldn't put it down after I really got started, and wound up finishing it in a couple of hours total.
I thoroughly enjoyed Home At Last and have a suspicion that it will be one of those books I read more than once. It was just what I needed to wind down and relax after a bit of a long day.
This Book earned a 4.5 Bark rating.
