Christian Hill saved Dorcas Froggatt
from an unscrupulous man and as thanks, was forced into
marrying her. He goes on to fight overseas and his marriage
becomes little more than a distant memory. Ten years later,
someone is looking into that misbegotten marriage, stirring
up more than just memories.
Mistress Hill, aka Dorcas Froggatt, is
looking to marry again. She needs to confirm the rumor of
her erstwhile husbandís death. But when a member of her
husbandís family comes to seek her out, she finds there is
more to her wedding day than she originally suspected.
Through a series of misunderstandings
and mistaken identities, husband and wife learn about
themselves and each other.
The Secret Wedding was
both quick and confusing, with tendrils of plot twisting and
turning like a strand of ivy. Keeping straight the lies and
names of the people involved was difficult for both the
players and the reader. Full of action, suspense and
romance, this is not a beach read, but a book worth of
sitting down and paying attention.
