Publisher's Summary

Could losing everything be the best thing to happen to Annabelle Thorley?

In the fallout of her deceased father's financial ruin, Annabelle's prospects are looking bleak. Her fiancé has called off their betrothal, and now she remains at the mercy of her controlling and often cruel brother. Annabelle soon faces the fact that her only hope for a better life is to do the unthinkable and run away to Fellsworth, the home of her long-estranged aunt and uncle, where a teaching position awaits her. Working for a wage for the first time in her life forces Annabelle to adapt to often unpleasant situations as friendships and roles she's taken for granted are called into question.

Owen Locke is unswerving in his commitments. As a widower and father, he is fiercely protective of his only daughter. As an industrious gamekeeper, he is intent on keeping poachers at bay even though his ambition has always been to eventually purchase land that he can call his own. When a chance encounter introduces him to the lovely Annabelle Thorley, his steady life is shaken. For the first time since his wife's tragic death, Owen begins to dream of a second chance at love.

As Owen and Annabelle grow closer, ominous forces threaten the peace they thought they'd found. Poachers, mysterious strangers, and murderers converge at Fellsworth, forcing Annabelle and Owen to a test of fortitude and bravery to stop the shadow of the past from ruining their hopes for the future.

    "Enjoyed it"

    I couldn't put it down. It was a good story, a little different from the norm. Another view of how women had to suffer because they had no control over their lives in the past.

    Story
    "Romance, mystery, and a lot of intrigue"

    Sarah Ladd has done it again. Such a unique and intriguing story. I loved Owen from his entry into the story as well as his daughter Hannah. But Annabelle gradually grew on me as she slowly warmed and let her walls down. She became "human" in a way that seemed impossible in her limited and straight laced world of London. Her Uncle Edmund was a great surprise to me as he turned out to be a man of great depth and warmth.

    There is a lot of intrigue and suspense threaded throughout this book as well as some pretty sordid characters.

    The audiobook was also extremely well narrated. I highly recommend this one.
