Heart of the Crown
by Hannah Currie
Book 3 in the Daughters of Peverell series
Guys, I balled my eyes out during the reading of this tremendous story. I’m sad that this is the final book of this amazing series. Every book in the series just keeps getting better and better. I highly recommend reading the first two books in the series first because then there won’t be any spoilers.
Lady Wenderley Davis has had a tough year or so. She’s had her heart broken by a prince and has vowed to never have that happen again. However, when her friend asks her to become the temporary governess for the young Prince Ryan who just lost his mother, she feels like it might be a God thing (or Godwink or divine moment – whatever you like to call it). Wenderley has been praying for the young prince and his family for a while and is willing to do what she can to care for them. She is determined to only stay for a few weeks but with the Queen’s encouragement, she keeps staying longer and longer. She easily falls in love with young Ryan and tries to help his distant father, Crown Prince Marcos, to spend more time with him. As she wears her heart on her sleeve, Wenderley tries her best not to get too attached to the royal family but it’s difficult because she knows that she can’t stay. Wenderley also has a secret and even though she’s far from home, her past still comes back to haunt her. Will Wenderley ever be truly free from her past? Can she be forgiven for her mistake? Can she separate her feelings for Ryan and his handsome father before it’s too late?
Seriously, the relationship between Wenderley (Can I call her Wen? lol) and Ryan is absolutely adorable and so heart-wrenchingly beautiful. Obviously, if you’ve read the previous books, you understand that the relationship between Marcos and his son is complicated, but there’s one particular scene where I couldn’t stop tearing up. But my favorite scene came towards the end and I definitely had a cathartic cry. lol. I’m definitely that person. There was just something so beautiful and cleansing about that scene – the author really “preaches” some beautiful and relevant messages about forgiveness and faith – I made so many highlights near the end.
Obviously, I highly recommend this book and series. Way to go out with a bang! I’m sad the series is over and hope to read more from this author in the future! If you love stories about imperfect royals and the power of love and forgiveness, I highly recommend this series. FYI there were plenty of parts that also made me laugh and sigh.
What are you waiting for? Read this now! (unless you need to read the first two books first) 😉
