Widow Lilian Fairclough runs a foundation for indigent women with the help of her children, Lottie, Amelia and son Silas.
Silas is in America to try to broker a deal to make money, but the ladies are struggling to run the foundation and their home.
Jasper King, an old family friend is in town after recovering from a terrible injury. He sees Lottie alone in a bad part of town and is determined to rescue her and she is determined to protect their clients.
He comes to her rescue and she returns the favor several times. She badgers him to have surgery on his leg, and he gives him, believing it won't help and is surprised by the result. The tale has villains, innocents, angst, romance and joy, along with colorful characters.
I requested and received a NetGalley Arc to peruse.
