image - book coverThe story is set in the 1840’s and revolves around Mariah and the family secrets that surround her.

When her mother dies her father revels that she is a bastard child and that he wants her out of the family house, his responsibilities have ended.

After moving in to the maids family home she gets involved with problems caused by their eldest son.

The story is the triumph of Mariah’s recovery, finding out the secrets of her father and brother, and of sweet retribution.

The author has written a tale that seems so real and shows so much human emotion.

It’s a book to be read and not put down.

You appreciate what woman had to put up with in that era – men dominated,woman obeyed.

Worth while reading.
