A family saga from the bestselling author of A Daughter's Gift and The Servant Girl.
She's no more than an unpaid servant. Lorinda is only a child when tragedy deprives her of her true family and, sent to live with her aunt in her boarding house, she grows up desperately craving affection. And although she finds friendship -- and even love -- in the boarding house, she finally sees a chance to escape her drab surroundings and unkind family. But is a marriage of convenience better than a love that's true?
