Publisher's Summary

Widow Gail Saunders is struggling to support her eight-year-old son, Nicky, by running a small riding school when the Earl of Savile arrives to tell her that Nicky has unexpectedly inherited money from Savile’s cousin. Gail and Nicky spend the summer at Savile Castle, where Gail falls in love with the charming Raoul, a man as far above her in social station as the sun is to the earth. To add to her troubles, someone seems to be trying to kill Nicky. The threads of the story unwind to an unexpected yet satisfying conclusion (which I am not about to reveal here!).

I’ve loved this book since the first time I read it

I have no idea how old this book is. I read it when it was published in a paperback and I’ve bought every version over the years. The story is gripping, the characters relatable and of course the ending is just what you want. (Sigh) so sweet.

Yeah!

I fell in love with Joan Wolf’s writing decades ago. I love audio books. I am thrilled to have the two together. Hopefully, her trilogies of pre-history France and Medieval Britain will be available soon. They truly are among my top favorite novels of all time - especially Edge of Light and Daughter of the Red Dear. Thank you Ms. Wolf for so many hours of wonderful reading (and now listening.)
