Eighteen-year-old Emily Lawrence believed that her life was simple and that the most challenging thing she would face in her life would be to convince her cousin and companion, Rosalind, to have more courage. Her life takes on complications when Mr. Adrian Williams moves into the neighboring estate. Emily's father forbids her from having anything to do with the man, but when an unexpected illness throws her into Mr. Williams company, Emily finds that obeying her father is more difficult than she imagined.

Emily struggles to understand why her father is so insistent on the matter. What happened eight years ago, when the Williams' left the estate? Is it a coincidence that Emily's mother died at the same time?

"This charming tale has a feisty heroine that could give Elizabeth Bennett a run for her money."

I'm curious as to the reason Emily's father didn't allow his wife to be buried in the family plot. He certainly is a touchy fellow. Excellent story!

Ditto. Like a couple quandaries to start a tale. Great story line...CGC

What an unbelievably hard and droll person he is...I can't say I like him overly much. He doesn't take grief well, it turns him into a crude unthoughtful boor...😐

Hmmm. I think both Emily's mother and Rosalind's father had a scandal of some sort.

I love all the drama and cliffhangers in all your books. It just gives them that extra edge that sets them apart from others and that makes them absolutely amazing.
