This book was easy to read and easy to love. It had just the right blend of history and romance to keep me intrigued and I wasn’t quite ready for it to be over. I wanted to stay in their world and see more of their story unfold.

Penelope and John are wounded characters with big hearts. I longed for them to find their happily-ever-after. Their fears and the world around them prove to be hardy obstacles. Their journey has its bumps and bruises, but I loved seeing how they grew and were strengthened through adversity.

God is so faithful and relentless in His love towards us. That truth and comfort shines evidently throughout this story and teaches these endearing characters that their past does not define who they are. God’s forgiveness never ceases to abound.

A Perfect Weakness is a book I highly recommend. With a deep theme of redemption and a beautiful love story, this book will undoubtedly delight many historical romance readers.

I received a free copy from the publisher. No review, positive or otherwise, was required—all opinions are my own.




The Civil War left its mark on Dr. John Turner. He turns his back on medicine and sees his unexpected inheritance in England as an opportunity to start over. But he never imagines how God intends to use his new role as lord of Ashford Hall or the beautiful woman he finds there to ease his troubled soul.

A tragic loss led Penelope Howard to bury her heart and dreams in her work for the Hall and the village of Woodley. But the arrival of the new heir stirs not only her discarded longings but her compassion as well. What burden does he carry that he can’t accept that grace covers the darkest of sins?

A deadly epidemic sweeps through Woodley revealing secrets which threaten everything. The doctor faces a choice: leave or dare to believe what the Lord whispers through the woman John has come to love.

No one is beyond redemption.
