Pengarron Pride Summary

Eight years after being forcibly wed to Sir Oliver Pengarron, Kerensa Trelynne is the established lady of the manor, happy in the arms of the man she loves and the devoted mother of three children. But she never forgets her roots, maintaining the friendships of her youth, including that of Jenifer Dranncock, a local fisherman's wife.

On first seeing Jenifer's son, Bartholomew, Kerensa is horrified by his resemblance to Oliver and suspects the worst. But a secret encounter with Samuel Dranncock puts her mind at rest, even though she learns a truth she must never divulge. Then Samuel's tragic death at sea and Jenifer's desperate situation causes Kerensa to wonder if she should speak out, whatever the consequences for her own family.

    Jessica Trenchard is a spirited and, at times, wayward girl - to the point that her father, Clem, is considering remarrying, just to provide her with a suitable role model. But Jessica's tender care of the distressed and speechless girl she discovers in a field shows that she isn't just a fun-loving tomboy. Her compassion touches the heart of Kane Pengerran, eldest son of the Trenchards' landlord, who has reasons for his own for desiring the love of a sensitive woman.
