“That same ache I had been feeling for weeks now blossomed inside of me, bruised, bleeding, and broken. Only now did I realize it was my heart.”
After a season in London, Charlotte Lyons is still regrettably unattached. With her family’s finances in peril, she is sent away with her sister to a bleak coastal town where she is expected to pursue a wealthy earl. She is beautiful and talented; how can she possibly fail? But when her heart is captured by someone entirely unexpected, Charlotte finds herself caught up in a web of lies and intrigue. Between hardship and sorrow, she finds more than she bargained for, and is forced to choose between the life she once wanted and a new love she never imagined.
A story of a change of heart.
This story follows an unconventional heroine, one who is not meant to be likable at first. Charlotte's change comes about as she faces hardship, as she opens her heart, and as she realizes what truly matters in life. She was blinded by her mother's expectations, a lack of love, and a crippling society. I hope you will follow her journey with an open mind and heart, and enjoy watching her change and fall in love.
