her Aunt Patience have a dim view of the aristocracy, who neglect those living
on their estates. England
Nicholas Stamford, the Earl, who owns the land, returns from war, plagued by nightmares and guilt from the past. He's fascinated by the outspoken young woman, who seems unaffected by his position.
Their two worlds collide, but can they ever reconcile their differences or ignore the rules of society?
Carolyn Miller is a new-to-me author. I thought she did a good job with the story and character development. Lavinia seemed a little too perfect, but I was able to get past that detail. Overall, the book was an enjoyable reading experience. I liked the cover - very cute.
I'd read another book by Ms. Miller. I'm giving this one 4 Stars.
