Duty
Nell Goodman is a good daughter. Her job in the local brewery is the only thing keeping her and her mother afloat. But with her mother becoming increasingly eccentric and requiring more and more attention, Nell is starting to feel the burden of her responsibilities.
Dreams
When Nell goes to George Wilmot, the brewery's owner, for help he offers her a job as a live-in servant at Wilmot Grange. And then she begins to grow closer to Devlin, George's son, and it looks like Nell's luck is finally changing.
Despair
An unwelcome discovery and a tragedy mean that things suddenly change. Devlin pulls away from Nell, her mother's behaviour is becoming worse, and there are secrets around every corner. Somehow Nell is at the heart of all the drama and yet she has no idea of the part she is supposed to play . . .
Review:This historical romance is a wonderful, gripping read. Nell is a powerful character for the time period she lives in, and her journey in this complex, unforgiving world is hard to put down! Highly recommended.
