Sir Maxwell Barrington and Sarah Asselbrough married in May 1912. It was a marriage he had not wanted, but his father had gambled the family fortune away, so if Sir Maxwell was to save Christleton Hall and the estate - his inheritance - he had no choice but to marry for money. Sarah was well aware of this, but lived in hope that Maxwell would one day love her as passionately as she loved him. Born in the poorest slums of Liverpool, Ruby Mansell is viciously attacked, which alters her life forever. Befriended by Lady Sarah, she's taken to Christleton Hall where she lives in luxury she never dreamed of. But as she grows into a strikingly, beautiful young woman, she's torn between loyalty to Lady Sarah and her love for Sir Maxwell - a love that brings her heartache she could never have imagined.
