A romantic saga of pre–World War I England, from an author with “a gift for making you feel right there, in the story, with her lovely warm characters” (Sophie King, author of The Girl with the Ruby Ring).
Life in Devon in 1909 is hard and unforgiving, especially for young Emma Le Goff, who finds herself totally alone in the world after she is orphaned and evicted from her home by her callous landlord. The landlord’s son, Seth, is deeply attracted to Emma and sympathizes with her—but all his attempts to help only incur his father’s wrath.
When a mysterious fisherman comes to Emma’s rescue, Seth is jealous and seeks solace in another woman, but finds that forgetting Emma is not as easy as he hoped. And Emma is pulled between two men who each want to lay claim to her heart . . .
“Vivid and page turning with a captivating young heroine.” —Margaret Kaine
