Extended description
Forced from France by her devious guardian on the eve of the French Revolution, Countess Bettina Jonquiere must deliver an important package to further the royalist cause. In England, she discovers the package is full of blank papers, the address false and she�s penniless. Stranded in a Cornish village, Bettina toils in a bawdy tavern and falls in love with a man who may have murdered his unfaithful wife. Tracked by ruthless revolutionaries, she must uncover the truth about her father�s murder�and her lover�s guilt�while her life is threatened.

Reviews:
This is a tremendously well-written and compelling story. The characterizations and settings were lovingly crafted and completely believable.

All the characters have distinct personalities, and seem utterly real.
