JustRead Tours Blog Tour: Pearl's Promise by Edwina Kiernan

Pearl's Promise JustRead Blog + Review Tour

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Pearl's Promise by Edwina Kiernan, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

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? 

Pearl's Promise by Edwina Kiernan is a Christian Historical Romance from the Regency Time Period. I truly love the Regency time period. The book cover and the time period is what drew my interest in this book. Also, Edwina Kiernan is a new to me author. 

Children are to honor their parents and their wishes for them. Pearl Acton is struggling with the fact that her father wants an arranged marriage for her. She doesn't want to be in a loveless marriage, she would rather marry someone she chooses for LOVE and the wealthy Mr. Clarence is not her choice. Nicholas Dalton is visiting London as he is trying to find "his place in this world" and he has a chance encounter with Pearl. Nicholas is immediately smitten by Pearl, but then finds out she is promised to another man. Nicholas has never gotten along with his father, and he lacks confidence. Will Nicholas gain the courage to find his place and seek a relationship with Pearl? Will Pearl feel the same for him as he feels for her? Will the pair feel they have to follow the plans their families have for them or follow God's plans? 

I truly enjoyed this novel from beginning to end. Pearl wants to honor her family, but she is also determined to be her own person. Nicholas is such a caring gentleman and only wants what is best for Pearl. The pair are both aware of their family obligations, but they feel by following family obligations it wouldn't lead to happiness. Pearls Promise is Book 2 in the Gems of Grace series, but it reads GREAT as a Standalone novel. I am looking forward to reading more books in this series!
