London, 1786. Lord Henri-Antoine has returned from the Grand Tour to a life of privilege and excess. A vast inheritance allows him every indulgence, free from responsibility. Yet, Henri-Antoine maintains a well-ordered existence, going to great lengths to conceal an affliction few understand and many fear. Miss Lisa Crisp is a penniless orphan who relies on the charity of relatives to keep her from the poorhouse. Intelligent and unflappable, Lisa will not allow poverty to define her. She leads a useful life working among the sick poor.

Lucinda Brant weaves a rich tapestry of life and love in Georgian England. Her love of the era and her extensive research make you feel as if you are in the middle of the story. One becomes quite attached to the characters and it is somewhat disappointing when the end of the book arrives because you wish the story would continue forever. Alex Wyndham's narration only serves to support the complete submersion of the reader into the story.
