Downton Abbey lovers, launching it onto Amazon bestseller lists twice before it
even released. A blurb from the book!
The year is 1838, and seventeen-year-old Julia
Elliston’s position has never been more fragile. Orphaned and unmarried in a
time when women are legal property of their fathers, husbands, and guardians,
she finds herself at the mercy of an anonymous guardian who plans to establish
her as a servant in far-off Scotland.
With two months to devise a better plan, Julia’s
first choice to marry her childhood sweetheart is denied. But when a titled
dowager offers to introduce Julia into society, a realm of possibilities opens.
However, treachery and deception are as much a part of Victorian society as
titles and decorum, and Julia quickly discovers her present is deeply entangled
with her mother’s mysterious past. Before she knows what’s happening, Julia
finds herself a pawn in a deadly game between two of the country’s most
powerful men. With no laws to protect her, she must unravel the secrets on her own.
But sometimes truth is elusive and knowledge is deadly.
