To say that Henry (Hal) Pelham, eighth Baron Ansford is haunted would be an understatement. His life has been but one tragedy after another. The only truly good thing in his life is his daughter. Sadly, he can't seem to even get that relationship right.
Enter Miss Galatea (Tia) Wyndham and her mother. Their lives have also been turned upside down. They've lived in the poorhouse, but the experience has not soured them. Instead, they each see the good in others and the joy in the mundane.
Set in 1822 England, this lengthy standalone novel has interesting characters, a likable heroine, who is both innocent, strong and honest, and a redeemable hero who deserves a second chance at happiness. In addition, there is a sweet child (Polly Pelham) who needs to be loved, and some wise words from a supportive mother, Mrs. Wyndham. The plot is easily woven together and well written with a steady pace. The sweet ending includes an epilogue, but it could have been better. It lacks something that just keeps if from being satisfying.
