AbstractHistoryArchive Description

An illegitimate peasant girl faces cruelty and hardship in 19th century Dorset. When her mother and stepfather perish in a fire, Siana Lewis finds herself destitute, with a younger brother and sister to support. Although her prospects seem bleak, Siana's beauty and intelligence will attract the attention of three men. Daniel, her first love - the man who will betray her. Francis Matheson - the village doctor, who admires Siana's determination and thirst for knowledge. And Edward Forbes, the local squire. A sensual and devious man, Edward is used to getting what he wants. He desires the beautiful peasant girl from the moment he sets eyes on her - and he's determined to have her. Whatever it takes. - From author's website
