Today I am going to post a line from
The Sound of Diamonds
by Rachelle Rea (Cobb)
This is book one of the Steadfast Love series. It is a fantastic young adult historical romance novel.
Add the books to this series to your GOODREADS TBR pile.
In Reformation-era England, a converted rogue wants to restore his honor at whatever cost. Running from a tortured past, Dirk Godfrey knows he has only one chance at redemption.
An independent Catholic maiden seeking refuge in the Low Countries finds herself at the center of the Iconoclastic Fury. Jaded by tragedy, Gwyneth's only hope of getting home is to trust the man she hates, and she soon discovers her poor vision is not the only thing that has been blinding her.
But the home Gwyneth knew is not what she once thought. When a dark secret and a twisted plot for power collide in a castle masquerading as a haven, will the saint and the sinner hold to hope...or be overcome?

A crash shook the nun's cell I had called my own since seeking refuge in my mother's homeland.
