IN PROPER VICTORIAN BOSTON, ONE WOMAN DEFIED HER HERITAGE FOR A DARING CHANCE AT LOVE!
Beautiful Sydney Talbot was the belle of Back Bay society, accustomed to every luxury. But she had a noble ambition--to help less fortunate women, the poverty-stricken workers from the mills. Day after day, she toiled in a free clinic, desiring only to become a doctor--until a raging blaze brought Fire Captain John Rocco into her life.
He was a handsome, adventurous man, who soon offered his bold heart to Sydney. She feared that her family would never permit her to marry a common man and scandalize the hallowed Talbot name. But she could not forsake John, the man who touched her soul, and inspired a magnificent, powerful love!
