Gloved Heart by Charlotte Brentwood ~ Book Review

Gloved Heart  (Hearts of Amberley, #2)Gloved Heart by Charlotte Brentwood
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: Historical Fiction

Book Description:  Can she ever trust again? 

Amy Miller is struggling to come to terms with her new life as a mother, while being a reluctant guest in a rigid gentry household. A victim of abuse, she is determined to never trust a man again. 

Henry Russell has loved Amy for as long as he can remember, but his family want nothing to do with her. A chance encounter with Amy rekindles a friendship which might save both of them. 

The discovery of a secret which holds the key to Amy’s past will change them both forever, and jeopardise any chance they have for happiness. Can Henry show Amy that true love will give her everything she could ever need? 

Sensuality level: sweet (only kissing) 
Some content may challenge sensitive readers.

My thoughtsGloved Heart had a lot of depth to the plot. Amy is a young single mother. She was violated and kept the baby. Her circumstances are not ideal, her adopted parents had passed away and now she is the ward of a wealthy couple. She is not sure why they have taken pity on her and helped her out in her time of need.
Henry is the son of a farmer and has loved Amy for a long time. He doesn't care that she has a child. He knows she is blameless in his conception and longs to give her and her son a home.

This book is an emotional one. You have a young woman who feels abandoned and has a hard time believing in and trusting another. She doesn't know if she will ever be able to stand to let a man touch her and find the love she longs for. I found this book to be one of healing. There are a few plot points that surround Amy and Henry that also deal with relationships and healing. They are a wonderful addition to this emotionally driven book.

This is the second book in a series but can be read as stand-alone. I plan on reading The Vagabond Vicar in the future. I have already added to my Kindle Unlimited wish list.

This book contains content that is not graphic but sensitive to victims of sexual abuse. I received a complimentary copy. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
