The Guardian of Secrets is an epic historical novel spanning generations. Celia, a rich landowner’s daughter, marries a man who seems to worship the ground she walks on until they are married. Then the abuse begins and she constantly struggles with thinking that he may love her, to being afraid to leave because she could lose her inheritance, until finally she is pregnant and has to leave to protect the baby. She embarks on a life changing journey and even through the lies and deception surrounding her marriage, she finds happiness again, not knowing that her husband is alive and looking for her. This was a masterfully written story and I would highly recommend it for the historical fiction fan.
