Great Expectations meets Grantchester in this story of love
and lies, secrets and second chances, set in Edwardian England.
Beaten and left for dead in the English countryside,
clergyman and reformer Tom Cross is rescued and nursed back
to health by Miranda and Simon Thorne, reclusive siblings
who seem to have as many secrets as he does. Tom has spent
years helping the downtrodden in London while lying to
everyone he meets, but now he’s forced to slow down and
confront his unexamined life.
Miranda, a skilled artist, is haunted by her painful past
and unable to imagine a future. Tom is a welcome distraction
from her troubles, but she’s determined to relegate him to
her fantasy world, sensing that any real relationship with
him would be more trouble than it’s worth. Besides, she has
sworn to remain devoted to someone she’s left behind.
When Tom returns to London, his life begins to unravel as he
faces the consequences of both his affair with a married
woman and his abusive childhood. When his secrets catch up
with him and his reputation is destroyed, he realizes that
Miranda is the only person he trusts with the truth. What he
doesn’t realize is that even if she believes him and returns
his feelings, he can’t free her from the shackles of her past.
