But a disaster puts James in charge of arranging care for his aging parent and assuming his responsibilities as heir to the family fortunes. Life seems utterly bleak until Marguerite Voisson arrives to interview for the position of housekeeper.
Marguerite lost her family to a revolution but lives life with an optimist’s conviction that the best is yet to come. As she takes charge of the burned out ruin that is the Braedon family home she discovers bits and pieces of James’ past that both delight and sober her. And persuade her that James Braedon could be the love of her life.
