Laura Jennings, a young widow, has tried to accept that motherhood is not an option for her in her present situation. Her maternal feelings are usually satisfied by her arrangement with Spencer Jeffries, the owner of Rosemerryn farm, to look after his adorable six-year-old daughter, Vicki. The villagers of Kilgarthen are convinced that it is only a matter of time before Spencer and Laura marry, and sure enough, Laura and Spencer soon fulfil their expectations.
But the couple do not have a smooth start as newlyweds. Are they trapped in a loveless marriage or just too stubborn to acknowledge their true feelings for each other?
An involving and entertaining sequel to Kilgarthen from the masterful Gloria Cook, perfect for fans of Katie Flynn and Anna Jacobs.
