Sylvia Penhurst is forced to bear the burden of her unhappy marriage,
her ardent temperament subdued by her husband's cold unfeeling
behaviour. Then suddenly to her yearning, caged heart comes love, love
of the kind her husband cannot or will not give.
The temptation to surrender to her passionate nature is too much but her
happiness is short lived. For Sylvia has a small daughter and she
realizes too late that in reaching out for a moment's happiness she has
destroyed a child's world.
A captivating love story from the 100-million-copy bestselling Queen of
Romance, first published in 1953, and available now for the first time
