Throughout her young life, Fiona Macfadyn only knew loss. Her mother escaped to Virginia when she was only five in fear of losing her to her Highland father. They resided with a bitter aunt until her mother's second marriage and ultimate demise following childbirth. Her older brother, who was left behind in Scotland to train as a guard and future laird, managed to secure funds for her to attend a finishing school. However, her life proved difficult because of her inability to fit in with high society until her brother rescued her upon graduation. She returned to England and while her brother continued with an unexpected shipping business deal, becomes the victim of the devastating societal expectations of the ton. Her ultimate goal of returning to the Macfadyn Keep in Scotland was once again delayed by an older laird's interest in handfasting for a share in their land for water rights, followed by a devastating illness. Can Fiona, despite her many beaus, find someone who will truly love and respect her and not only for her family's possessions? Can she overcome an impoverished youth for the self-confidence she needs to forge ahead in life? Join Fiona, who through hardship and misfortune, ultimately must make choices that will affect both hers and her family's future for years to come.
