Agnes Berry-Clay might have been born into rags but she is growing up with riches.
Given away as a baby by her real mother, she was rescued and raised by her darling Papa and distant Mama. Agnes wants for nothing, except perhaps a little freedom.
But as times goes on, her life at Windmarsh Court changes. New arrivals and old resentments push Agnes to the peripheries, and finally the consequences of one fateful day shatter her dreams for the future.
Heartbroken and surrounded by the threat of scandal, Agnes is faced with a terrible choice: stay and surrender, or flee and fight to keep her freedom.

How easily a young woman in the 19th century could start with everything and descend into poverty. Agnes thought she could cope on her own when circumstances at home forced her hand. How wrong she was and but for the help of some past acquaintances things could of proved fatal. Great characters you either loved or hated.
The Author, Evie Grace. Another great story from this author. She has certainly done her research and tells of the harsh life of the poor people in this era. Looking forward to the next one
