Publisher's Summary

Victorian London is a cruel place for a divorcee, but with the death of Sophie Duthie’s beloved second husband, she is now a widow, and independent for the first time in her life. She might not have much in terms of means, but with the help of her music shop, she can support herself and her son, Alfie. Even though her second marriage was happy, Sophie is done with husbands. Her first marriage taught her well that fairy tales are nothing more than illusions. 

To Lord Aberley, his former wife is nothing but a scheming pariah, and unfortunately, his subsequent engagement wasn’t successful - not that he’s ever had much delusions about marriage. It is something he now wishes to avoid at all costs, but he needs an heir. It is the one duty he cannot overlook, so learning that his former wife’s son is six years old creates serious doubt about his true parentage. Seeing the child only confirms it. 

Alfie Duthie is his child.

Some acting required

First audible by this author. Nice story but it was dampened by the drawling accent of the narrator and some odd pronouncements. I know it is written by an American and read by one but really, the book is about English people.
