Set in the reign of Queen Anne, this is the bold yet touching story of Magda, a young girl partially disfigured by a childhood riding accident who grows to an otherwise beautiful womanhood.

Her savage stepfather Sir Adam Congrayle tricks handsome young Esmond, Earl of Mornbury, into marriage with Magda without first allowing them to meet. And the night of the wedding, when Esmond sees Magda for the first time, brings its inevitable crisis…

Brilliant

Absolutely brilliant! The reader was excellent, she really brings the life in the characters out! This has been my favorite all time Denise Robins book since I first read it over 20yrs.
