When Dominic Renbourne is visited by his identical twin
Kyle, he steels himself for the sort of bitter
confrontation that has marked their meetings for years.
But when Kyle makes an exceptional request, and offers
some family land as a bribe, Dominic feels his defenses
failing. Unable to deny the desperation in his brother's
eyes--or the chance to finally inherit some of their
family's wealth--he agrees to an unusual charade. Dominic
will temporarily take his brother's place in the courtship
of the beautiful, if possibly mad, Lady Meriel Grahame.
The mysterious Lady Meriel is as unpredictable as was
rumored. After her recovery from a childhood kidnapping,
she turned inside to her secret world of silence and the
comfort of her lush garden. Though two elderly relatives
and an Indian caretaker have since watched over her,
Meriel can not communicate, and flees from the external
threat that Dominic presents.
Unable to dismiss Meriel's odd behaviors as insanity,
Dominic seeks to uncover the source of her pain and the
core of her complex personality. Warmed by his patient
compassion and gentle encouragement, Meriel begins to open
up to him. But the pressures of society and the growing
threat of her commitment to an asylum force Meriel to
choose between these two worlds. Helplessly in love with
her, Dominic searches for a way to help her find her true
identity, while continuing to conceal his own.
