In this discovery-of-love story set in early 1800's England,
"...the only measure of wealth acknowledged by love is reciprocity."
At the legendary estate of Southjoy Mission a modest country woman of no social prominence is destined to encounter a wealthy gentleman of education and superior station in society.
The sensibility of the one is brought into conflict with the excessive pride of the other during the renovation of the once elegant, now forlorn estate. Therein begins a conflict fueled by class prejudice, superstition, hidden pasts, and a betrayal of friendship.
Pitted one against the other, their clash upends the world of Southjoy Mission and threatens to condemn their own lives to an endless litany of dismay and regret.
In the darkest moments of deceit and betrayal, there awaits a resolution, but they shall not find it in themselves.
To pierce the treachery propelling their destructive contest of wills, they must discover the radiant simplicity of virtue through which love, in all its myriad possibilities, may engage their hearts.
