Annabelle Tyler is trying to start a new life for herself but things just keep getting complicated. Due to circumstances she could not control, she found herself married to an eligible bachelor. Hoping to secure an annulment quietly, Annabelle and Harrison soon find that it might not be as easy as it seems.

Hidden Affections is one of those books that takes you back to the 1800s and captures your imagination. Delia Parr weaves a tale of trust and love that you won’t be able to put down. I found that the characters were believable, and funny. I liked Annabelle’s determination and spunk in spite of circumstances. I recommend this book to my friends and family.
