Having grown up on the mean streets of nineteenth-century London, Caroline St. James is used to fighting to survive.
So when her beloved mother - abandoned and ignored by her wealthy family - suddenly dies, the scrappy twenty-two-year-old devises a plan to right this terrible wrong. With nothing to lose, she sails to New York to find the man who turned a cold shoulder to her mother's suffering: Caroline's grandfather. To settle the family score, Caroline infiltrates her grandfather's privileged world, hoping to sabotage his business from the inside. But as she sets her plot in motion, she meets Jackson Montgomery, a virtuous man who is struggling to recover from a family scandal of his own. As their friendship grows, and Caroline begins to piece together the motives that led her family to turn its back, she is forced to make a decision: Should she risk everything in the name of justice? Or can she look toward the future and let love and forgiveness guide her instead?

I truly enjoyed the story. My only wish would be that it didn't end so abruptly. All in all look forward to listening to the next installment.
If you're looking for a book that's interesting,exciting and minus "get on with the story" sex scenes; then this is the book for you. I really enjoyed reading it.☺☺☺☺☺
enjoyable read with very nice twists. I switched back and forth to listening in my car to reading on my kindle when I got home. I would love to know sally s sorry as it was never fully disclosed
I thought that the book started out strong and I was really enjoying it. However, the last third of the book threw me when it kept discussing G-d and the bible. The plot weakened and turned to preaching.
Absolutely. I will check more closely before I purchase a book.

Overall I enjoyed this story. The story line was great. I was sometimes annoyed at the overuse of adjectives. A bit of an overkill. And the narrator did a good job. The male voices sometime made them sound a bit ignorant. But even so I did enjoy the story line very much.
I was completely and pleasantly surprised by this listen! Loved it! Just may be a new favorite author. Excellently written with clear character development. A great combination of adventure, suspense, romance and a beautiful journey of forgiveness. The narrator was perfection! Really brilliant. Highly recommend!
