Charlotte Drummond knows she has a duty to obey her father. Girls, especially well-bred upper-class ones, are expected to be submissive to the men in their lives.
But Charlotte's father is a cruel man, viciously beating her and her brothers for the slightest reason. He even wants to marry her off, at just sixteen years old; to a man she does not love. Lion-hearted Charlotte wants to defy him but to protect her brothers from his fury she agrees to become the wife of Brooke Armstrong.
Only when tragedy strikes will she will be able to admit that she loved him from the moment they met. But will it be too late?

This story is slow and very boring. There's nothing for the characters to overcome, just little problems here or there and never just one train of thought. There are also VERY dull and weird sex scenes. The author romanticizes domestic violence and rape. I am not anti-violence, or anti rape in stories, sometimes they work well, but the author writes Charlotte, the main character, oblivious to the fact that these things are going on and even accepting these things as her fault. It drove me crazy how stupid Charlotte was. This book was frustrating and slow. I had to put my iPod on 2x speed in order to get through it. I've read and listened to thousands of books and I recommend...DO NOT waste your money!

Carole byd who reads this one is fabulous!!! The story itself is over long but I loved it...mostly because Boyd makes each character an individual voice and holds my attention as if it were a play at the West end in London.
