Lady Anne Hawthorne is the daughter of English aristocrats whose land and wealth is in Ireland. Anne, born in Ireland, is torn between her love
of her birthplace and its people and her love of her English family and their
traditions. Worse, she is attracted to two men, an enigmatic, mischievous
Irishman, and an intriguing, handsome English marquess, also a landowner in
Ireland. When she feels obliged to take action, she finds her romantic vision
of Ireland is not what actually exists, and her choices may endanger everything
and everyone she loves.
