    Suspense! Intrigue!

    Bronte, now the Lady of Markby Estates, arrives at her new home with her husband, the Lord John Baptiste. There she meets Addison LeClaire, daughter of the estate¿s caretaker. In her new home not more than a day, Bronte receives some devastating news, someone has shot and critically wounded her husband. As the sheriff works to uncover the culprit, Bronte tries to settle into her new life while caring for her husband. It¿s not long before she begins to suspect that all is not what it appears to be at Markby. For example, it seems the caretaker¿s daughter has a secret, one that could cause a great deal of trouble if discovered. Why? What is Addison so desperate for no one to learn? Bronte also discovers something else about Addison. Though she cannot read, Addison is a talented artist with a chance to study art in Paris. So why is she still at the estate? Feeling a need to help Addison, Bronte begins to teach her to read. As the lesson¿s progress and the two spend more time together, Addison realizes she has a strong attraction to Bronte and Bronte to her. Life at the estate is complicated enough, can they even allow themselves these feelings? Dare they even hope for a chance at a life with each other? There are many questions, the least of which is¿what about Bronte¿s new husband? Suddenly into the fray comes a new development, someone is trying to warn the two women? Warn them about what? Does it have anything to do with the mystery of what happened to the previous Lady of Markby? And why someone is so determined to see the mystery remain unsolved? Gabrielle Goldsby has proven she is a skilled purveyor of words with her previous book, Wall of Silence. Once again her talent comes to the forefront in The Caretaker¿s Daughter as she weaves a tale of the lives of two women who, though from different social circles, come together, overcome obstacles and stand strong for what they want.
