Eighteen year old Catherine Martin gave her heart away when she was fifteen years old. Without thought or question, it was given to the boy with the striking blue eyes that worked at his father’s blacksmith shop. Elijah Baldwin captured her heart and mind when he spoke freely and honestly, something Catherine is not used to in her world of society rules. Sadly, Elijah’s family is snatched from him by the yellow fever, leaving him to the Guileford family. There are worse families to be orphaned into; after all, the Guilefords are the richest family in Philadelphia. Things change when Elijah realizes his new brother and confidante turns out to be Catherine’s intended. Vincent Guileford is handsome very much like Elijah, the same tanned skin, shaggy brown hair, but that is where the similarities are lost upon the two men. Whereas Elijah is kind and caring, Vincent is cold and calculating, only wanting to possess things to make him appear better than his adopted brother. Things become complicated between the two men when they realize they both love the same woman, but Catherine only has eyes for Elijah. Vincent threatens her and everyone she loves if she refuses to marry him, a threat she surely does not think he intends on carrying through. Catherine wants to marry for love, not for riches, and especially not for social status. She will make it her mission to be with the boy who stole her heart so long ago. In Catherine's world of privilege, such a pursuit is costly and will test how far she is willing to go for her brightest hour.Brightest Hour is an epic love story set in 18th century Philadelphia....

Brightest Hour Reviews
Catherine Martin is feisty and very rebellious for a girl from 18th century Philadelphia. She’s from a rich family and they have high hopes for her to marry the son of another very rich and affluent family. Catherine doesn't like who they have chosen. Vincent may be handsome but Catherine has always felt something is not right about him. When Catherine meets the blacksmith’s son Elijah she instantly falls in love. They become best friends and even though they both feel something more for each other, they know society would never allow them to be together. When Catherine turns eighteen her marriage with Vincent is being arranged but she can’t go through with it, not only because of her love for Elijah but Vincent has changed and there is something very evil about him. If you are a fan of Shakespeare’s forbidden love in “Romeo & Juliet” or enjoy Emily Bronte’s “Wuthering Heights” with a good twist, you will like this story. I cherished Elijah and his deep love for Catherine. I couldn't stop reading the story until I found out how it all turned out. **Spoiler**However, for me, someone who reads to escape reality and loves fairy-tales with happy endings I was left unsatisfied.
