With the dazzling storytelling that has become her trademark, acclaimed author Connie Brockway sweeps readers to Victorian England—a glittering world of titled society and scandalous secrets—in the enchanting tale of a woman who commits the most startling indiscretion of all: she falls in love.
Letty Potts, a petty schemer by necessity, has decided to go straight. But after narrowly escaping the wrath of her partner in crime, she finds herself at Paddington Station with nothing but the gown she’s wearing and another woman’s train ticket clutched in her hand. Masquerading as the redoubtable “Lady Agatha” of Whyte Wedding Celebrations, Letty arrives in the remote village of Little Bidewell, where she is to arrange the nuptials of a young society bride.
Amid the dizzying whirl of pre-wedding festivities, nobody suspects Letty’s secret—except Sir Elliot March. A war hero who has forsworn love, Elliot senses something decidedly amiss about this outspoken young woman, yet she awakens in him a passionate yearning he’d thought was lost forever. Soon, though, a desperate deception embroils them both in a web of scandal and danger as Letty’s past catches up with her, threatening not only her life but Elliot’s—and their love.
