This British historical romance offers “a vivid tale of ambition and intrigue” from the author of Emma and Her Daughter (Kate Furnivall).
Devon, England, 1911. Orphaned and scandalized in her hometown, young Emma Le Goff hasn’t had an easy life. Now she and her childhood sweetheart Seth Jago are set to marry, and for the first time in years, Emma is truly happy. But when Seth’s criminal brother breaks out of jail, his sinister presence brings back a troubling past. Meanwhile, Matthew Caunter, the charismatic man who came to Emma’s rescue in her hour of need, has also returned to Devon.
Escaping to Canada may be the young couple’s only hope. But for Emma, the thought of leaving Matthew is almost impossible to bear . . .
Award-winning author Linda Mitchelmore continues the tale of her “captivating young heroine” introduced in To Turn Full Circle (Margaret Kaine).
