Joy Reed launches a new trilogy with this Regency-set tale. It is said that if a woman looks into the well at Honeywell House before dawn on Midsummer, she will see the face of her future husband. When Catherine Summerfield looks into the well, all she wants is a glimpse of her future. Instead she sees the face of her best friend's fianc Jonathan, Lord Meredith. And while both feel guilty for their betrayal of Catherine's friend Laura from their first meeting they have been irresistibly drawn to each other. But Jonathan feels obligated to Laura, and Catherine feels that her past makes her not good enough. A leisurely tale with a charming village setting, though characters are not always shown in the best light.
