Underestimating Miss Cecilia

By Carolyn Miler


Shy, sweet Cecilia Hatherleigh has always been in love with Edward Amherst, the boy next door. Yet he’s never seen her as anything but the quiet girl in the background as he flirts with the other vivacious women of the ton.

When a near tragedy brings Edward’s attention to his family duties, this prodigal son decides he needs to settle down with a proper wife. Cecilia hopes to convince him to choose her—but God may want her to forget the wayward nobleman and put her future in His hands alone.

These two try to find their way toward happiness, but prejudice, political riots, and the changing face of England’s societal structures begin to block them at every turn. Can their struggles turn to triumph—or will their paths permanently diverge?

Book Takeaway:

Put your trust in God and His forgiveness, rather than depending on what others think of you

Why the author wrote this book:

I wanted to explore what would happen AFTER the prodigal son returned, and to see the challenges faced by the shy neighbour who secretly loves him. I set this in the time of turbulent change in English history, when men and women were demanding fairer representation in government.
