Overview

Orphaned at age 8 and raised by a brutal brother, nineteen-year-old Rhian dreams of meeting a man who will love her and give a family of her own. When she is invited to join the Evans family on New Year's Eve 1913, her life is thrown into turmoil. The youngest Evans' brother, Joey, confesses he loves her. Handsome, charming Joey has never met a woman who could refuse him anything. But Rhian is suspicious of his reputation as a ladies' man and it takes time, tenderness, and persistence to win her trust. Just when she finally admits that she loves him as much as he loves her, Joey's past overshadows and finally shatters their happiness. Rhian turns to her employer, Edward Larch, who offers her the only position he can, that of his mistress. Her choice is simple and irrevocable—to forgo love and the chance of a settled family life for the sake of financial security.

Read an Excerpt

He tried to imagine himself sitting in his father's chair opposite Rhian twenty years from now, children lined up on the chairs between them. He shuddered. He was not only tempting fate but wishing his father if not dead, then certainly elsewhere and there was no way that he could ever fill his shoes. He finished his tea, dumped the tea leaves in the pigswill bin, rinsed his cup and saucer in cold water and picked up his jacket ready to go to bed.

He heard the crackle of paper and remembered the envelope Rhian had given him. He removed it from his inside pocket, opened it and withdrew a copy of the photograph he had begged her to give him the first day they had spent together. He smiled, realizing that he hadn't been the only one who thought it was time to move their relationship out of friendship and on to a more intimate footing.

Rhian looked beautiful, but also unattainable. He had the strangest feeling that he was looking at one of the picture postcards that could be bought in any newsagent's or stationers of royalty or film stars. He had never loved anything or anyone as much as he loved her. But whether it was nervousness generated by Tonia's visit or Rhian's uneasiness about his past, he had the strangest premonition that she might never be entirely his.
