Cornwall England 1811
Cordelia Greythorne’s life had taken many painful and heartbreaking roads. Her situation grabbed at my heart right from the start. There were secrets alluded to also that had me curious and reading as fast as I could. Sometimes I wondered who really were the “good” guys and who were the “bad” guys.
Finding work as a governess to five children after her husband passed away gave her a purpose and an income. She came to love them all and felt responsible for their care, safety and emotions. When their only parent unexpectedly died, she found herself sent to the uncle of the children in another location. Life seemed to change so quickly. The uncle was stunned at first but settled into a different routine with the governess, tutor and the children.
But soon family secrets long hidden began to slowly surface and brought with them danger for Cordelia and those closest to her.
