The Girl in the Gatehouse by Julie Klassen
The Girl in the Gatehouse by Julie Klassen is a very good book. It is about a young lady, Mariah, who made a mistake and is banished from her father's house. She finds a home in her aunt's gatehouse where she and her companion is basically ignored by her aunt.
Captain Matthew Bryant has one goal in mind, to win the heart of his lost love by proving himself worthy to her and her father.
Then he meets Mariah when he rents her aunt's manor. She is not the woman he wants to marry, so why is he so intrigued about this girl with her many secrets?
This book is very well written and hard to put down. There is a couple of spots that I felt was too descriptive of Mariah's indescretions that I feel could have been left out though.
