When her father dies and leaves her completely destitute, Marion can think of only one thing to do—make a new life for herself.
Commencing a life of duplicity, Marion transforms herself into Mary Wood, governess. In possession of a forged letter of recommendation and cloaked in the anonymity of her new identity, she enters a life of self-imposed servitude as teacher and caretaker of young Miss Caroline Jonquil of Farland Meadows.
Her idyllic daydream vision of life at the Meadows is dashed when she finds a child desperately in need of hope, and a cold and sorrowful home haunted by the past. With her characteristic sunny disposition, Marion casts her spell upon the household and slowly brings to life the long-forgotten joy of those within.
Layton Jonquil is a man tormented by the lies surrounding the death of his late wife, but he cannot deny his growing attraction for the beautiful governess whose goodness and optimism have touched his dormant heart. Their connection grows ever stronger, and despite the impropriety of harboring feelings for a servant, Layton’s heart whispers that this is the woman he’s destined to love.
But when Layton’s fears about the past become too much to bear and the falsehoods in which they are entangled threaten to shatter his and Marion’s blossoming attachment, will true love conquer all?
This is yet another fantastic book from Sarah m Eden! I’m definitely looking forward to the next one!!
I LOVE Sarah Eden’s writings!
Her characters banter with each other as a humorous way to flirt…
For you see…
The girl likes the guy…but thinks the guy doesn’t like her.
When in fact the guy likes the girl…but thinks the girl doesn’t like him.
So FUN to read!
It makes you want to see them get together all the more 🙂
Filled with love and romance and humor– A must read for anyone who believes in “happily ever afters.”
I love Sarah’s books — this one is no exception! I stayed up way past my bedtime to finish this one. I love the messages of forgiveness and hope. I hope we get to see lots more of the Jonquil brothers in future books!
Sarah M Eden has done it again! Yet another great book!
Drops of Gold was such a sweet story. I loved the heroine’s pluckiness, her stories and her ability to weave magic into a home once lost to tragedy. The Jonquil brothers are such fun! I can imagine all of them coming together and what a beautiful sight! This was a lovely, heartwarming read.
Sarah Eden does not disappoint! Loved this storyline.
This book was a little different from the typical Sarah M. Eden book. Don’t get me wrong, it was still a nice and clean Romance (non-religious).
The themes were a bit darker though as it dived into depression, suicide, guilt, PTSD, and death.
It of course had a happy (predictable) ending, it just wasn’t as much of a page turner for me. I’m enjoying reading about the Jonquil brothers though and will continue the series.
I love this whole series of books The Jonquils are wonderful. This one is a little sad and has some dark themes in it but it does have a happily ever after ending . I can never get enough of the Jonquils.
The Jonquil series is a series that me myself, my sisters, mother, aunts, and cousins love. This series has been a big part of keeping us connected to one another despite of distance. For that, I am grateful to Sarah for creating such a wonderful series. As for Drops of Gold, it is such a sweet story and one of my favorites in the series.
