About this ebook

 Captivating tale. Perfect for fans of Poldark, Tracy Rees, Fiona Valpy & Dilly Court.
The daughter of the house is often overlooked …
Evelyn Pendragon is spirited but lonely, and largely ignored by her parents whose attentions are taken up with her brother, Nicholas: the expected heir to the family’s Cornish estate and the one who will carry on the Pendragon name. 
Stifled by her aristocratic existence, Evelyn finds companionship in an unlikely place when she befriends Drake Vennor, an apprentice gardener on the estate.
But When Evelyn’s life is thrown into turmoil by a tragedy, she realises just how much she has come to rely on Drake. Will family expectations and the burden of the Pendragon name mean she must turn her back on him when she needs him the most?

This is a romance that tells the dark side of being a strong minded woman in Victorian times. The early life Evelyn enjoyed until her brother's death is contrasted by her life after. The horror she is forced to endure is lightened by her long term friend Drake. As things improve for her, Drake suffers. This alternate mirroring of their lives continues until the end of the book. You will weep with Evie, grieve for Drake and cheer at the downfall of those who hurt them. Good and evil fighting it out. A romance with a huge difference.

Evelyn is the second child of a noble family. Being female and the second born, her parents don’t take an active interest in preparing her for anything but marriage. When tragedy strikes this all changes. Suddenly Evelyn not only has her parents attention but their focus as well. This story follows Evelyn from childhood into the woman she becomes. It’s a lovely story that will keep you turning the pages. The trials and tribulations that Evelyn goes through are heartbreaking but she persists to take control of her destiny. A wonderful read that you won’t be able to put down.
