A historical romance with a modern sensibility. Sarah Whitford has it all - love, wealth, social status, a beautiful house in the Maryland countryside - but not what she wants most: the right to determine her own destiny. Her life is controlled by men - her fiance, her father - and her encounter with the obnoxious new overseer doesn't make her life any easier. But her despite her initial aversion to him, she finds herself offering to teach him how to read. As she comes to know him, she finds that he may not be so objectionable after all, and that he may hold the key to allowing her to live life on her own terms.
