Lady Elizabeth has a past she wants forgotten after she is ostracized by Society when it becomes known that her fiance and father have conned many of their wealthy friends out of large sums of money. After losing everything , Lady Elizabeth seeks employment and refuge with the only friend who stood by her, and works as a clerk in her newspaper office. Hearing a young gentleman giving a very poor speech ( which he hopes will get him into parliament),, she offers to train him in public speaking and presentation. Lord Linfield finds this Lady has many talents that debutantes don't possess-- from caring about the poor population, especially children,extensive knowledge of politics and strong views on reform. A great read, well resourced and written. Recommended to all who enjoy historical romance and Abigail Agar !!!!!
