A magnetic read that calls you back each time you try and leave it for you must know Emily’s fate. As is usual in this area we have lots of drama and tragedy as Emily grows, eventually leaving home in unhappy circumstances and then making good in various wealthy households until she falls for a man she really should not have fallen for! Rosie Clarke is such a good author, do try her.
