Description of Book:
Charlotte Worthington, a delightfully spirited, red-haired beauty, returns to her beloved aristocratic home farm in Surrey to attend to her dying father. She leaves behind her fiancé, the handsome, debonair, Gareth Silversmith, in London. On her way home, a horseman stranger helps her to rescue a lamb caught in a wire fence. He turns out to be her father’s rugged farm manager, Hamish Oakford.
The chemistry between Charlotte and Hamish is undeniable, but financial and social status, and indeed, the engagement ring on her finger, keep Charlotte and Hamish at arm’s length of each other. Nevertheless, Charlotte finds herself reluctantly, but powerfully drawn to her father’s employee.
The pair join the local farmers in fighting against the railroad plan that is set to rob them of their farms. Gareth Silversmith arrives unexpectedly at the farm to encourage Charlotte to go back to London with him. Hamish soon discovers more about him than he should.
The death of Charlotte’s beloved father throws her into a turmoil of bereavement and vulnerability and indecision. Will Charlotte marry the man she really loves..?
