Original Title: Tilly Alone
'How many times can we love?' The question haunted beautiful Tilly Trotter, bereft after the murder of her beloved husband Matthew by warring Comanches. Summoning her courage, she fled America for the familiar English countryside. Tilly was Lady of the Manor now, richer than she had ever dreamed possible.
Yet it was love for her children, delicate Willy and Mexican-Indian Josefina, that helped her endure the slander of vicious townspeople. Indomitable, she never faltered in the face of adversity. And still she honored her promise of faith to a dying husband. But the flame of a childhood love rekindled, forcing Tilly to answer her greatest question. With gentle Steve McGrath, she could leave tragedy behind her. She could love again, as she had never loved before.
