Night in EdenPaperback - 1997
CANDICE PROCTOR Once in a great while a dazzling new writer appears on the scene with a historical romance so breathtaking that it sweeps readers off their feet. Candace Proctor is such an author. Here, in her deubt novel, she brings to vivid life a part of the Regency period rarely dramatized . . . and creates sets of characters you will never forget. NIGHT IN EDEN Bryony Wentworth's life is shattered when she is unjustly accused and sentenced to indentured servitude in New South Wales. Broken in body--but not in spirit--she fights for light, and for her life, wanting no part of the man who would save her, Captain Hayden St. John. But the mother in her cannot turn away from Hayden's needy infant and the woman in her cannot deny her passion for the rugged, enigmatic man she is bound to serve. Against the sweeping panorama of a harsh, gorgeous, and unforgiving land, two hungering souls learn to trust, to love, and to triumph over the danger that will shadow their lives--until destiny and desire become one.
