Pearl's Promise
Title: Pearl's Promise 
Series: Gems of Grace #2 
Author: Edwina Kiernan 
Publisher: Moliant Publishing 
Release Date: May 1, 2021 
Genre: Christian Historical Romance 

A duty-bound heir. A dejected spinster. An encounter that could ruin both their families' demands for their futures... 

Horrified to see the man she had always dreamed of marrying saying his vows to someone else, Pearl Acton’s devastation only seems to confirm one of her deepest fears - that she’ll remain unseen and alone, never mattering to anyone. 

And when her family falls on hard times and seeks to marry her off to a wealthy suitor as soon as possible, her other deepest fear seems inevitable - being trapped in a loveless marriage, just like her parents. 

Until an encounter with a quiet and soulful heir, Nicholas Dalton, sparks a fragile hope that perhaps Pearl might save her family’s fortune and marry for love. 

But when circumstances on both sides of their families take drastic turns, the promise of happiness seems irrevocably shattered. 

As Pearl and Nicholas each strive to uphold their family duties, they soon discover that things aren’t quite what they seem. But is it too late to escape their crushing obligations and forge a new path - together?

Nicholas rose to his feet. “I shall away at once and send for Dr. Henderson. I shall return with him as soon as he is able to come.” He made haste toward the door. Mr. Smith stirred with intent to rise also.

            “No. Remain where you are. Rest awhile.” Nicholas paused. “Is there anything that you need before the doctor arrives?”

            “No, sir,” Mr. Smith said, weakly. “Sir, I—” He shook his head slowly. “I cannot thank you enough, sir. For your kindness.”

            Nicholas assured him there was no such need. As he stepped out into the chilly, fresh air, he was almost light- headed. Walking away, he glanced back, a heaviness on his shoulders that he didn’t know how to remove. What a woeful place poor Mr. Smith was forced to dwell in.

            As he turned the corner and saw Eirwen waiting patiently for him, a rush of comfort swept over him.

            “There now, old girl. We were right. Poor Mr. Smith is not well at all.”

            The mare looked at him as he spoke, with a deep, steady eye. Nicholas leaned his forehead against her neck and sighed. His mind raced with thoughts of Mr. Smith, of what might be done, and of his father, whose disapproval would be as severe as his manner.                       It still made him shudder slightly to remember the time not so long ago that he had overheard his father and Brooks discussing the tenants. Cretins, he had called them. Miserable parasites.

            The same indignance rose now in Nicholas’s chest as it had that night. He’d hovered outside the door, praying for the courage to go in and defend the people that his father seemed to have forgotten were so integral to their prosperity.     

Yet, he’d failed.

As he mounted his horse, the memory of injustice gave him new resolve.

            “Come, we must return and send for the doctor,” Nicholas said to Eirwen.

            With a dig of his heels, they were bounding back to the main house, Nicholas asking in silent prayer for guidance.

            One thing he knew: this time, he wouldn’t fail.
