Cornwall, England, 1811
Blamed for her husbandâ€™s death, Cordelia Greythorne fled
Cornwall and accepted a governess position to begin a new
life. Years later her employerâ€™s unexpected death and his
last request to watch over his five children force her to
reevaluate. She canâ€™t abandon the children now that theyâ€™ve
lost both parents, but their new guardian lives at the
timeworn Penwythe Hall . . . back on the Cornish coast she
tries desperately to forget.
Jac Trethewey is determined to revive Penwythe Hallâ€™s
once-flourishing apple orchards, and heâ€™ll stop at nothing
to see his struggling estate profitable again. He hasnâ€™t

bewilderment over this sudden responsibility. Jacâ€™s
priorities shift as the children take up residence in the
ancient halls, but their secretive governessâ€”and the mystery
shrouding her pastâ€”proves to be a disruption to his
carefully laid plans.

captivating allure of new love, this first book in the

and their search for peace, justice, and love on the Cornish
