Another wonderful story from Susan Anne Mason.
This one is set in England and involves a young man who was raised as a servant – but becomes one of the aristocracy. It paints a good picture of the differences between those two positions at this time in history. The bigotry and power-grasping of the upper class, the poverty and powerlessness of the lower classes. But there were sorrows and trials no matter which class one was born to … or raised to.
Stablehand Nolan Price had always wanted to know who his father was … until he did. Kitchen maid Hannah Burnham’s world came crashing down when Nolan was discovered to be the Earl of Stainsby’s heir. Together they decide to take matters into their own hands, but things don’t turn out at all as they’d hoped. While Nolan gets to know his father, Hannah reconnects with her family, some of whom she never knew. Getting the two of them back together will require a lot of hearts to shift in an era where that wasn’t common.
A story well worth reading.
