It did start to feel like a bit much after such a delightful and relaxing read for most of the book. While there are hiden lighter aspects to the story, such as the sassy housekeeper at Graymoor Gardens, mostly this is a sober tale about the ramifications of divorce in the early 19th-century society of Pennsylvania.
However after I got past that, which took place in the first chapter, the story definitely got better.

Hidden Affections (Hearts Along the River, #3) by Delia Parr
But unbeknownst to all, her reputation is already ruined because of her previous secret divorce. I have a major problems with so called Christian authors trying to justify adultery.
The picture on the back cover of this book was all I needed to see to make me look forward to reading this book.
They are married in name only and both want a divorce as soon as you can. I found the characters difficult to identify with and connect to, so I had trouble understanding their motivations or lack thereof. That was exactly the kind of story I was expecting from Hidden Affections, and that is exactly what I got.
Because of a rather awkward situation and because proper society demanded it-the time is they are forced to marry.
I have read other Delia Parr books and have never been disappointed, and this book is right up there with her others.
Hidden Affections (Hearts Along The River, book 3) by Delia Parr
I thoroughly enjoyed Annabelle as a gentle character but with a little spunk and ingenuity thrown in. When two strangers are robbed on the stagecoach, handcuffed together, and forced to survive overnight, they never dream their futures are about to be permanently bound.
I always respect how Parr allows her characters to get to know one another on a spiritual and emotional basis before they ever have a physical relationship. I was not paid nor required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own. Set inAnnabelle Tyler and Harrison Graymoor are in a rather sticky situation. I love that she hasn’t become bitter but truly wants to do good wherever she can. Hidden Affections by Delia Parr is a novel that whisks you away and when it’s over you wish you could go back for more.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a touching and inspirational romance! Sep 06, LadyS rated it did not like it Shelves: I could certainly see the sobering effects of it in Hidden Affections. I also might add that the cover is quite lovely as the model looks a lot like Kate Hudson!
The opinions I have expressed are my own. The first half of the story was intriguing, watching these polar opposite characters, thrust into a marriage of convenience, of the most extreme form have to read the book to find out kept me wondering what was going to happen in their relationship.
I really enjoyed this third book written by Delia Parr. All opinions expressed are mine. I am very pleased to say that this book has completely changed my mind about the author and I will be coming back for more!
I didn’t care much for Harrison’s selfishness and the emphasis on society’s opinion throughout the book. Anyway, on to the book- Annabelle Tyler and Harrison Graymoor find themselves in a bit of a pickle. Unfortunately, neither Annabelle or Harrison are the slightest bit interested in marriage, but of course as all romantic fiction goes, their hearts soon tell them otherwise. Even those who have such a strong connection with God find themselves facing doubt every now and again.
