Item Description...
Called home to Regency London after his brother's death, Tertius Pembroke, Earl of Skylar, must marry quickly and produce an heir. Lady Gillian Edwards seems the ideal bride: young, beautiful and innocent. But Sky is no ideal husband, having returned from the Indies gaunt, ill and plagued by a darkness that he dare not reveal-even to his betrothed. Lady Gillian had promised Sky her hand in marriage but cannot give him her heart-not when she gave it to another man three years ago. Afraid of repudiation, Gillian buries her secret so deep inside herself, no one will ever know-or so she hopes. Through lies and deceit, their marriage slowly unravels. Then Sky becomes deathly ill, and his newfound faith offers two virtual strangers a second chance at becoming husband and wife.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Sorely Dissapointed  Jan 20, 2008
I was not able to finish this book. I had high hopes for it, considering the fact that Winter is Past is one of my top five favorite books. I even purchased it rather than getting it from the library. I was very disappointed.

I couldn't get past the first 100 pages. It was like watching a train wreck. I knew it was coming, and I didn't want to read about it happening. The characters were going down paths I could clearly see were wrong. They were lying to cover things up, and I just knew they would get caught in the act at any moment. I didn't want to find out how bad it was going to get.

I had no motivation to keep reading it, so I haven't touched it for over a year. I thought I would eventually go back to it, but I really don't care to. Maybe the third book in the series will be better?
Forgiveness and Redemption  Oct 17, 2007
First of all, I would like to mention that, while this book is the 2nd published in this series, I think it really should be read 1st. You need to have it read in order to make sense of some references in "Winter is Past."

Tertius Pembroke, Earl of Skylar, returns home from the Caribbean after his older brother dies heirless. He has bouts of sickness and is quite hallow in both appearance and spirit. While he was known to carouse as a youth, as a man witness to his father's philandering (proven by his illegitemate half sister) and his mother's broken heart, he has vowed that when he does marry he will be faithful and expects the same of his spouse (even though society deamed it acceptable to take lovers).

The extraordinarly beautiful Lady Gillian Edwards finds herself betrothed to the old, cold, Tertius though her heart belongs to another--A young officer she has worried for while the country was at war.

But as their courtship moves forward, she finds him less despicable and the two actually look like they might have a future together, afterall. Until...

Well, I don't want to give it all away. Let's just say that not everyone has the benefit of a Christ-filled home. This book is a wonderful example of how He can redeem those who have not been raised knowing Him.

It is also a good reminder of one of the reasons it is good to keep yourself pure for your spouse. Because even though he might make promises, even though you pledge your love, things don't always work out the way you plan.

In response to another reviewers opinion of the explicitness of the wedding night-- It does not describe any details other than his shock as he pulls away from her. So do not fear-- the book is not as scandalous as you have been warned.

This is a book of second chances. If you are of the "hate the sin, not the sinner" kind of mind and enjoy a good book with a realistic approach in describing God's grace and redemption, than this is a book you might enjoy.
Loved this book!  Nov 27, 2006
I'm a big fan of Ms. Morren and have read all her books. I don't read Christian fiction except for her books which I feel are excellent in any genre. Dawn in My Heart was a very satisfying read- the characters were very human and believable. The fact that the characters suffered and struggled with great conflicts, both inner and with each other made the book a rich story that ended up being incredibly satisfying. Morren has become one of my favorite writers simply for the reason she delves into the depths of human existence in such a compelling way. I was sorry when this book was finished because I was enjoying it so much, but I'm glad that she's writing more books so I have more of her wonderful stories to look forward to. An excellent read- deep and satisfying- a story that truly engages the mind and heart. Aside from showing the possibilities of love between two people against many odds, Morren has written a book that questions what love is really about.
Dawn In My Heart  Nov 25, 2006
I found this book with its characters to be human and true to life. It was another book that I could hardly put down and caused me to get all of her other Christian fiction books which I have now read and found to be as engrossing. I will be recommending this book as well as her others to my circle of Christian reading friends. Mrs. Morren will quickly become a favorite of anyone who loves historical Christian fiction. Her style of writing is inspirational and sensitive with beautiful believeable love relationships and this book is no exception. I was inspired to read her books by another review such as this that found her style of writing to be exceptional.
I'm trying to think of something positive to say...  Nov 23, 2006
I have to admit that even though I read reviews often, this is my first time to review a book. I feel obligated to warn fellow unsuspecting readers about this book. Let me start by saying that I have been reading Christian fiction since I was in junior high (let's just say a long time). I think that I am an open minded person and try not to judge a book by it's cover (ha ha). The other books that I have read by Morren were well written and overall good reads. I didn't hesitate to pick up this latest book "Dawn in My Heart". After the third or forth chapter I was shocked and even checked the publisher to make sure I was really reading Christian fiction. I'm in my late twenties. I don't think that I am out of touch with reality but when I pick up a Christian fiction book, I guess I have different standards than I do when I rent a movie. The main characters aren't Christians in the beginning of the book which explains why their behavior is less than perfect...but the level to which Morren takes several issues is uncalled for. For instance, the wedding night scene is just gross and I don't think that I am alone when I say that this book does not fit into the Christian fiction category even though the characters do turn to Christ in the end. I did finish the book hoping that I would have an overall positive opinion of the book and it just didn't happen. Even in the final chapters the wife is still having an affair and is almost raped by her 'lover' before she goes home and ends up consumating her year long marriage with her husband. That just does not say romance to me. Sorry Morren, I just think you took things way too far.
