Summary
"1816. Ryder, Lord Madigan, has never got over the loss of his childhood sweetheart, Adele : the woman who abandoned him at the altar. The woman who humiliated him and left him a broken man. Now she's come home, a widow. Wrongly believing Ryder to be dead, Adele has returned to her Dorset village to reunite with her family and pick up the pieces of her life. Despite everything, she has never stopped loving the man she jilted. But can she put right the worngs of the past, and bring herself to tell Ryder the truth about why she left him - and the misery of her life since then? Ryder too is keeping secrets from Adele. If the two former lovers are to have a second chance at happiness, they must overcome their pride and admit their true feelings for each other

Review
Adele Pelham has given Ryder, Lord Madigan, the ultimate insult—she’s left him standing at the altar in 1816 with no explanation given. Years later, Adele is found wandering in the marshes, weak and feverish. Ryder doesn’t need Adele to complicate his life again. He just wants her to get better so she can be on her way with her stepdaughter, Sarah. But something seems off in the story Adele tells about the man she married when she deserted Ryder. And, despite everything, Ryder finds himself drawn once more to the lovely widow, even though he is determined to discover why she didn’t show up for their wedding, and what really happened during the years they were apart. Adele wants to keep her past a secret. After all, the details are too horrible to share. In her latest historical romance, Woods (Foxing the Geese, 2016) tells an emotional tale about love lost, abusive relationships, and second chances that will keep readers captivated until the very end. -- Mosley, Shelley (Reviewed 5/1/2017) (Booklist, vol 113, number 17, p62)
