Benjamin Romilly, Earl of Furness, shut himself off from the world five years ago when his wife died in childbirth. He leaves his young son to run riot as he cannot bear to look at the living reminder of his beloved wife.
Miss Jean Saunders had a difficult childhood and when she hears of the possible neglect of a young boy by his father she sets off to rescue him without much of a plan.
With Jean’s arrival to his home and his meddling uncle, Benjamin is dragged back into the world and is he disconcerted at the effect this emotional, witty, independent woman has on him.
With a colourful cast of characters, particularly a mischievous five-year-old, this is a charming read that leaves you curious for more of this author’s work.
