Lady Rose Sherbour was rendered mute after seeing a traumatizing event as a young girl. But that didn't stop her from having a wonderful summer with the stable boy. They were able to communicate without words. Even though they were very young, she could sense the connection between them even then. But he just disappeared one day and Rose has no idea what had become of him. Now speaking again and moving about in society, Rose runs into her stable boy at a most unexpected place.
Charles Holland never imagined that he would see Lady Rose again. When she shows up to stay at the home of his employer, he realizes that his feelings for her haven't changed in all the years they have been apart. When Rose asks him to help find information about her mother, Charles can't refuse.
Will the difference in their stations keep this unlikely couple apart?
Once again Barton put together a wonderful story! It's not often that we see a story where the H/H have such class difference. But once again, Barton was able to pull it off. I always love her stories because they always contain some mystery in which the H/H need to solve. That just enhances the story as it puts them into situations in which they normally wouldn't have found themselves in.
I've loved this series, but I think this is the last one....so sad!! I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next!!
