Glimmer of Hope by Sarah M. Eden

Glimmer of Hope by Sarah M. Eden

Summary from Goodreads:
Stunning Miranda Harford once had the world at her feet. She was young, carefree, and desperately in love. But when her new husband left for London without her, her world fell apart. Devastated by his abandonment, Miranda fled their home, taking residence at her husband’s rarely visited countryside estate. For three years, she lived alone. But now, as the holidays draw near, an unexpected visitor arrives . . .

Carter Alexander Harford, Seventh Viscount Devereaux, is a man driven to succeed. His work is his life, and the position of Prime Minister of England is within reach. But in truth, Carter is a man haunted by lost love. Estranged from his beautiful wife, Carter is shocked to find Miranda—the woman he’d loved and who he believes has left him—in residence at his country home.

As plans for a holiday party move forward, the uneasy couple realizes that to avoid further scandal, they must keep up appearances in a charade of marital happiness. Thrust together by fate, it quickly becomes clear that they have both been living beneath a conspired cloud of misunderstanding. As family, career, and social pressures threaten to keep them apart, can love have even a glimmer of hope?

My Review:
*Sniff*  Sarah M. Eden pulled on my heartstrings in this one.  I think I cried more in this book than I have with any of her others.  Be prepared with a box of tissues.

This book was filled with miscommunication.  It was painful to read and yet, as the title states, there was hope.  I was impressed with the characters' ability to get past all of the pain.  There was a lot of forgiveness and healing.  

Warnings: Bring tissues

I would let my 15 year old read this book based on cleanliness.  However, I think the subject matter is definitely adult.
