New York Times bestselling author Mary
Balogh returns to the elegance and sensuality of
Regency England as she continues the enthralling story of
four remarkable women - friends and teachers at Miss
Martin's School for Girls. At the center of this
spellbinding novel is Anne Jewell, a teacher haunted by a
scandalous past...until she meets a man who teaches her
the most important lesson of all: nothing is simple when
it comes to love....
She spies him in the deepening dusk of a Wales evening - a
lone figure of breathtaking strength and masculinity, his
handsome face branded by a secret pain. For single mother
and teacher Anne Jewell, newly arrived with her son at a
sprawling estate in Wales on the invitation of an
influential friend, Sydnam Butler is a man whose sorrows -
and passions - run deeper than she could have ever
As steward of a remote seaside manor, Sydnam lives a
reclusive existence far from the pity and disdain of
others. Yet almost from the moment Anne first appears on
the cliffs, he senses in this lovely stranger a kindred
soul, and between these two wary hearts, desire stirs.
Unable to resist the passion that has rescued them both
from loneliness, Anne and Sydnam share an afternoon of
exquisite lovemaking. Now the unwed single mother and war -
scarred veteran must make a decision that could forever
alter their lives. For Sydnam, it is a chance to heal the
pain of the past. For Anne, it is the glorious promise of
a future with the man who will dare her to reveal her
deepest secrets...before she can give him all her heart.
