Atoning for Ashes
By Kaitlin Covel
Josie had always detested black. As she watched the carriage struggle up the winding drive, the familiar sense of dread seeped into her bones in a damp echo of the rain against the window pane.
Who’s in the carriage? Why does it bring such a terrible sense of dread? Watch for my full review on Monday.
I had to give you a little more than just the first sentence. As a bonus, the second sentence gives you a wonderful sense of the pictorial language of Ms. Covel’s writing style.

About the Book:
Josie Chadwick dreams of marrying for love in Cornwall, England, but with her father’s debt threatening to destroy all she holds dear, her romantic options are dwindling. When her elder sister Delia is disowned, Josie finds herself heiress of Chadwick Park, torn between dreams and duty. After sacrificing her heart to atone for Delia’s sin, Josie clings to the hope she will learn to love a distant husband, whom she fears is incapable of requiting her affection.
Charles Radcliffe’s heart has been scarred and hardened by rejection. He fears hurting his new bride, but his fears of betrayal and rejection are stronger, making it impossible for him to trust her love―let alone the love of her God.
As Josie and Charles face their new life together, ominous events warn of dark family secrets that could shatter them both. More than a loveless marriage is at stake if they cannot stand as one. Will they learn to trust God and each other before it’s too late?
