A fun romantic novella about the classic theme of love being blind to social class.
1813, just outside Bath, England…
After her father’s sudden death and the discovery of his mountain of gambling debts, seventeen-year-old Liza Richmond and her mother arrive from London at her mother’s sister’s estate, Barington Hall, penniless and forced to live in a tiny cottage.
Liza’s mother is determined that Liza use her youth and beauty to attract a wealthy man who will provide for their family. She is over the moon when a young Duke becomes interested in courting Liza.
Liza, however, is far more interested in Will, a baker’s apprentice who shares her love of horses.
Will she obey her mother’s wishes and marry the Duke, or will Liza follow her heart?
