Peta is 19 years old and what you would call a free spirit, taking after her upbringing. When she is orphaned, she is placed in the care of her stepfather’s younger brother. Not happy with this change of events and her carefree manner, the ”uncle” is disapproving and the two are off to a rough start. Yet living together eventually leads to new types of emotions as things between this man and the pretty wild girl heat up. The love story dating back to the 20th century was written under Susan Barrie, a pseudonym of the master of romance, Ida Pollock.
A must-read for fans of literary romance and surprising twists of fate.
