She’s certain that she would never consider Mr. Brightford, a man whose sharp tongue and constant frowns make it hard to endear him to her. Amelia’s best friend, Lottie Harrington, is sure she’s found the man she wants to marry – but her hopes are about to be destroyed, causing pain and chaos to herself and to the people around her.
