Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling legend and author of the Survivors' Club series comes a cherished novel about the risks and the compromises that come with falling in love....
Governess and mistress - he wanted her as both....
The illegitimate daughter of an English lord, Sian Jones abandoned her heritage to live in a stalwart coal-mining community in South Wales. Empowered by their cause, she's engaged to be married to the leader of a revolutionary movement that is bracing itself against the tyranny of English mine owners. But Sian's principles are unexpectedly shaken when she accepts a job as governess under Alexander Hyatt, the mysterious marquess of Craille, the oppressive symbol of everything she has come to resist.
She never expected Alexander to upend all her expectations. He is sympathetic to her cause. He is a loving father. A man of wealth and position, he is fatally attractive. And he is offering his heart to the independent woman who has illuminated his life. Now, caught between two worlds and between the promises and desires of two men, Sian must make a choice that will define her future - one that can only be made in the name of love....

Wonderful writing frustrating characters

Some times I got so frustrated with the stubbornness of the heroine that I would stop listening to the book to process my irritation! That is my only complaint really. Mary Balogh's writing is always a treat. The character development was solid and constant. It is a great listen or read for anyone that enjoys this genre!

Mary Balogh's best!

A lot of research went into this book. The writing was excellent and the characters well-developed. It's better than most romances. This is my favorite of Mary Balogh's books.
