Kate Elliss tries to be fair to everyone but no one seems to return the favour. When she is left in penury after her father's death, she seeks employment to support herself and her two faithful, elderly servants. Unused to servitude, and with an attitude somewhat inappropriate to her position, she realises that she has found her house of dreams - unfortunately it belongs to her employer (who is mystified by her polished and sophisticated gifts). Then her vengeful brother Daniel turns up and her situation becomes even more precarious.

'Jean Morley is a spellbinding storyteller. I could not put this novel down until the last page!' - Charles Muller, Diadem Books.
