"It was not true love," Elsie managed to say. "It was all deception. A man in whom I believed had nothing but greed in his heart, yet I couldn't see the truth. He is in prison now, for theft and defrauding another unsuspecting person." Unbidden tears welled in Elsie's eyes, and she cried out. "Oh, Mrs. Murray, how can I ever trust my feelings again? How can I ever know the difference between love that is true and what is false?" Elsie's experiences with a cunning charlatan have led her to doubt herself, and not even two years in the royal courts and stately homes of Europe have completely healed her wounded heart. But Elsie is now twenty-one and about to return to her homeland. Will she abandon all her dreams of finding true love? Can anyone overcome her memories of the treacherous Bromly Edgerton? Will she recognize the face of true love? In this fifth book of the Elsie Dinsmore: A Life of Faith series, readers will follow the charming heroine on a crucial, life-changing journey.
