About the Book

Although born into the British aristocracy, the Honourable Sophia Lucienne Rochford was raised in obscurity first in a French convent and then in a Parisian brothel. Like a wilderling—a cultivated flower that manages to live in the wild—Lucy has survived her terrible early years in France. At sixteen, she is restored to her rightful place as the daughter of the Rochford family in Edwardian England, but a devastating betrayal by her father fires her determination to seek wealth and independence at any cost. She learns the ways of society and ignoring the existence of love and she succeeds in her aim. She catches the eye of the handsome and noble Count Alexis Zemski, who swears his love and agrees to marry Lucy even after learning of her past. As World War I shatters Europe, Lucy begins to learn what life and love are all about... but makes many tragic mistakes before she comes to terms with her true self. Earthy, cruel and beautifully told, this is the gripping sequel to The Chatelaine.
