About the Book
Three years after a shocking scandal destroyed her family and forced her into isolation, Eleanor Hayward finally has an opportunity to put her painful history and dashed hopes behind her. But reentering society is no simple task. In her cousin's glittering ballroom, Eleanor is stunned when she comes face-to-face with the man who broke her heart those years before.
Edmund Fletcher thought he had laid the past to rest until he unexpectedly encounters the woman who so nearly became his wife. Soon to be engaged to another, Edmund knows he must let go of the complicated feelings he harbors for Eleanor. However, when the Hayward scandal resurfaces and the truth behind their parting is revealed, Eleanor and Edmund are left reeling. Tormented by thoughts of what could have been, they realize it is impossible to rewrite history. But is there a future in which they might both find happiness—and true love?
About the Author
At a young age Heidi perfected the art of hiding out so she could read instead of doing chores. One husband and four children later, not much has changed. She has an abiding love for peanut butter M&Ms, all things fall, and any book that can make her forget she is supposed to be keeping her children alive. Heidi currently lives just north of Boston, in a charming old town in southern New Hampshire.
Heidi Kimball’s first full length novel A Guarded Heart is an enjoyable and heart-warming story of rediscovering what was thought to be a lost love. Although a bit confusing in the beginning with the switch back and forth between the current time and three years earlier, along with everything else that is going on in the story, once readers catch on, they will thoroughly enjoy it. Kimball’s story is heart-wrenching, as well as sweet and her characters are engaging, endearing, and delightful. This story is also about overcoming past hurts and falling in love all over again. An enchanting, light, and easy read, this is perfect book curl up with on a stormy day.
