AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Having lost her father, Thea Goodson is alone in the world.

'It is true she has a husband, but Ernie is a brutal man, more inclined to use his fists to keep Thea in line than to build on their marriage. And besides, Ernie Goodson has secrets – secrets that even his wife cannot share.

'But in Victorian Yorkshire, appearances must be kept up, so Thea goes on powdering her bruises and forcing a smile as she toils in Ernie’s home and tobacco shop. There seems to be no other option.

'That is, until a handsome and well-bred stranger arrives to set up shop next door…

'Can Thea escape her misery and break from the conventions of society? Or will the clutches of her abusive husband confine her forever?'
