I really enjoyed this third book written by Delia Parr. Hidden Affections is a sweet love story about two people who don’t want to fall in love ever again, because they both have lost in love.
It talks about divorce in the 1800’s, which wasn’t something that was done and when it was the divorced people were shunned and couldn’t work in certain jobs.
Hidden Affections also talks about a forced marriage that neither Harrison or Annabelle want or should have happened. They are married in name only and both want a divorce as soon as you can.
I like the description of the mansion Harrison lives in and of the gowns and parties they go to. Delia is quite a storyteller and I enjoy her insights in the lives of others. She knows how to write a good romance with tender and is good at showing the story instead of telling it.
Quite a good story to read on a rainy afternoon and I recommend it. It’s a light kind of read full of happiness, joy with some sadness and heartache in it.
