On Christmas Eve, a group of costumed mummers—or actors—arrive at Torlinghurst where they will perform for Jack Beaufort, the new Duke of Cranmore. The mummers have gone from manor to manor in hopes of getting paid for their shows in drink, pies, and pennies. But among them is an impostor who only wants revenge.
Justina Travers has been in mourning for three years. Her beloved fiancé Simon perished in an ambush at the hands of the French. She believes the one survivor of the attack—“Lucky” Jack Beaufort—committed treason against his country and led his men to their death. Hoping to end Jack’s luck for good, Justina uses the mummers’ play to sneak into his home, but there she uncovers a dramatic twist that shakes her convictions…and just might melt her vengeful heart.
