Carolyn Miller's newest series, Regency Brides: A Promise of Hope, begins with a tale entitled Winning Miss Winthrop. You will meet Catherine Winthrop as she is visiting the tenants farms on her family's land. Sadly, when she returns home, she finds a scene she never imagined. Her father has passed away unexpectedly!
Because there is no male heir, Catherine, her mother and her sister find themselves in a place of uncertainty. Catherine's world becomes even more uncertain when she realizes her father has not left his family any money, but instead a pile of unpaid bills!
Following the funeral, the new heir is revealed: Jonathan Carlow! Jonathan is a self-made man, who unknown to Catherine had made an offer for her hand in marriage and had been rejected by her father. However, because of his connection to the family, as a third cousin, Jonathan will now be the head of the Winthrop family!
It has been three years since Catherine and Jonathan have seen each other, so you will feel the iciness when they finally meet again. Will Catherine and Jonathan ever be able to forgive the hurt and rejection they feel from the other?
Hang on to see if and when this relationship will finally be restored. You know it can only happen by the grace of God!
