Review - The Virtuoso by Grace Burrowes
About The Book:
Ellen Markham tells herself she's happy raising flowers and living in near penury in the Oxfordshire countryside, but when Valentine Windham moves in just on the other side of the wood, Ellen's longing for things she can never have threatens to overcome her good sense. Valentine's artistic soul, tender loving, and ducal determination tempt Ellen to trust and confide in a man who can only be endangered, should he learn of her past. For Valentine, regaining his musical skill becomes far less urgent than winning Ellen's heart.
Review by Lynda:
Valentine Windham is a hero that will steal your heart with his sensitive and complex personality. He's handsome, rich, well-connected, and privileged, but he's also a descent human being with tragic circumstances. Author Grace Burrowes does a great job with this story, and I especially liked that the world of music is threaded throughout. Ellen Markham is a heroine with beauty and depth of character. She may not be the perfect match for Valentine, but she may be his only hope!
