In this second book in "The Eden Hall Series" you will continue to watch "Minty" Cardale embrace her new role as Lady of the Hall. Since this books picks up right where book one left off, I highly encourage people not to read them out of order.

Although Minty has been given Eden Hall after the death of her father, there is a lot of hard work ahead of her as she struggles to keep the place open to the public, while finding money to fix it up and also find time to help with the charitable foundation her father started. But Minty's biggest challenge is her bitter and resentful step-family who do nothing to help her but only to harm her. Her one consolation is the friends she has made in the village and her childhood sweetheart and eventual fiance', Patrick Sands. These two were meant for each other, but don't expect a lot of romantic moments with these two love-birds, because they are few and far between.

This story dealt with "the burden of unforgiven hurts" which can destroy a person if they don't deal with them. But the peace, love and happiness that you find when you learn to forgive and let go of the hurt is worth it all. Looking forward to seeing what will happen next at Eden Hall in "Secrets at Eden Hall", book 3. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 031025079X, Paperback)

Minty must overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles to keep her home and her relationship with the man she loves In Book Two of the Eden Hall series, Minty has inherited her beloved Eden Hall---and a host of problems. The villagers depend on the Hall for their livelihood, but there is no money to keep the massive Hall open. Members of her step-family do their utmost to undermine her reputation, and some of the staff at the Hall are up to no good. Everyone has high expectations for Minty but she is too inexperienced to avoid all the pitfalls in her new life. To make matters worse, Patrick, her true love, is having doubts about their future together. They both must learn how to forgive those who have damaged them in the past, even when those same people still have the power to destroy them.
