Pure is the Heart

pure-is-the-heartOn the brink of a revolution, fourteen-year-old Elise LeNoir, instructed by her grandmother, writes a letter to a distant relative. The letter finds its way into the hands of Hunter Radley, Earl of Weatherly, and the two begin a correspondence that carries them through the French Revolution, Hunter becoming Lord Westwood, and until the time Elise must flee France after her parents are arrested and guillotined. Upon reaching the shores of England, Elise makes her way to Westwood’s estate, only to arrive on the night of his betrothal ball to Lady Delia.

            Raised to love and honor God above all, with roots in Catholicism, Elise struggles with her sins and must come to terms with her faith as she seeks redemption in a country where her religion is basically illegal. She knows her sins keep her from God and will not allow her transgressions to darken Hunter’s soul. To do so, she must distance herself and fight her growing love for him. 

            Hunter put in much time and effort when he chose Lady Delia to be his wife. It was not a love match, but one of two families uniting. Out of dozens of young women in society, not one made his breath catch or his heart beat fast. Not until Elise LeNoir arrived at his home. Bound by a betrothal and plagued by the guilt of his betrayal and disloyalty toward Delia, Hunter seeks answers from his minister, the Word and in prayer.
