Jane Freemont is British young lady with a very big problem. She is modern girl...but she lives in early 19th Century. Jane has a critical, inquiring mind that is always ready to state her honest opinions--no matter whom she may inconvenience. This causes the young gentlemen to run away for her--for men surely can welcome women's criticism so much more than they do. But that's their loss.This book is available in e-format, so the give-away is International.
Jane's older brother, and only living relative, has sent her to live far away where he believes her critical and inquiring mind will no longer create problems for him. But as Jane arrives in beautiful Ravelston, she becomes determined to discover the fate of another, yet much less privileged, young woman who has mysteriously vanished. In Ravelston no one seems to care about what happened to Mary Hale, who was seen as unimportant because she was poor. But Jane will risk everything, even her future, to find out the truth.
And she will discover that powerful love, unaccepted in oneself, can be the cruelest thing there is.
