Publisher's Summary

Since losing their parents, Kate and Andrew Dunbar have been living with their cold-hearted aunt and uncle within the vaults of Edinburgh's South Bridge. Worked relentlessly, Kate has little chance to secure a different way of life for herself and her brother.

Then one day Richard Hope walks into her life. An upper-class student training to become a doctor, Richard knows that he and Kate come from very different worlds. Instantly smitten, Richard vows to do whatever it takes to spend his time with her. But as the romance develops, not everyone is happy for the young lovers.

Can their fragile relationship survive the pressures of family betrayal and society's disapproval, or will they be forced to part?

    "what an ending tissue please"

    lovey story and very sweet. I like tbe reader, this was at times hard to listen to so sad - at times not your feel good listen to, more a Dickens with some sex story.

    "The story that wouldn't end."

    This book was aptly named. One sweet moment is right. Everything else was downright depressing.

    "NOT what I expected... or desired..."

    If you enjoy historical romance novels that are well-written, but lighthearted and predominantly happy, this one is NOT for you. 95% of the novel is spent recounting tragic, deeply disturbing, even sexually depraved events, steeped in a sense of loss and inescapable sadness. The ending -- a rather distant commentary on social progress -- is, to me, not worth the emotional turmoil the reader has, by that point, borne. Also, the cookie that is tossed the reader in terms of a - somewhat - happy ending is utterly insufficient.

    That being said, the book probably accomplishes what it sets out to do, (though with a bit of a sledge hammer approach). It is well read -- excellent narrator. I just wished fervently that I hadn't bought it. Way too disturbing/depressing!
