(From the publisher):
Emily Whittaker’s life in Lincoln is one of good works; and the closest thing to romance in her experience is her luke-warm relationship with Dr. Boyle. A new friendship with Nathalie Fanshawe brings interest to her life, and makes possible a welcome visit to the sea-side.
On her return to Lincoln, she finds that Canon Trimmer and his family have moved into the cathedral close and visiting them is Mrs. Trimmer’s brother, Sir Gareth Blades. The baronet seems to be a very figure of romance, and, to Emily’s amazement, he appears to be attracted to her.
But the arrival of Annis Hughes convinces Emily that there is a side to Sir Gareth that is a mystery to her and the discovery of a connection between the baronet and Mrs. Fanshawe leads Emily to think the very worst. Is Sir Gareth the gallant gentleman he appears, or a heartless rake? Would Emily be better off settling for Dr. Boyle after all?
