Headstrong and blinkered to dangers, she triggers the dismissal of her personal maid and is saved from harm by a tenant’s son, Tobias Jenkins. Her avaricious stepmother, Lady Alicia Harpham, uses this incident to add weight to her growing argument to send Hannah away, further her education and distance her from her father. Hannah finds an unlikely ally in Tobias Jenkins, who becomes her rock in the maelstrom of events. Their love deepens, but what will happen when the secret of his past is revealed?
