Shy young Caroline Singleton has come from England to Ireland in 1915 to work as a governess at Thornley Hall, the country home of Lord and Lady Wilcox. But the beautiful, willful housemaid Grace Sheridan, with her fierce dedication to Ireland's freedom, opens Caroline's eyes to desires she has never imagined.
As their friendship blossoms into a passionate secret romance, Caroline finds the greatest happiness she has ever known. But will Grace's involvement in the upcoming Easter Rising in Dublin prevent the possibility of a future together?
In this provocative lesbian historical romance, Caroline grows from a solitary young girl mourning the death of her brother in World War I to an adventurous young woman accepting and embracing her unconventional nature—but is she ultimately prepared to take the risk to be at her lover's side in a time of danger?

This is the second same sex romance I have read. Last time it was about the male gender.Both times I have been very pleasantly surprised! Caroline leaves her homeland to go to Ireland. She is to be a governess to young Amelia.After the death of her brother, Ralph, she had to leave. Why not? He was the only thing that kept her around.When she gets to her new place of employment she finds the Lady Wilcox to be a bit cold, but Amelia is a very pleasant young lady.She finds one maid in particular to be very intriguing and often finds herself admiring her...what might come of this new and interesting friendship? I think romances like this are always so much fun to read because on top of the love interest you have to get past the "do they feel the same about me" in a whole different way then a heterosexual relationship. Highly recommend to everyone, regardless of your sexual preference!
