Enchanting Victorian Novel Of Love And Intrigue
"YOU'D BETTER KNOW, HERE AND NOW, THAT YOUR AIRS AND GRACES DON'T CUT NO ICE WITH ME, NO MORE THAN YOUR FANCY WAY OF TALKING DOES. IF YOU'RE A SERVANT HERE, I'LL THANK YOU TO ACT LIKE ONE."
Miranda had been so gently reared that now, orphaned and penniless, a servant on Ynys Noddfa, the huge Welsh estate of the Glendowers, she scarcely knew how to behave.
Nothing, however, could dampen Miranda's proud, headstrong spirit. She refused to cringe even before the forbidding master of the house, Gethin Glendower. In fact, Mr. Glendower seemed to enjoy Miranda and allowed her many privileges, much to the fury of the other servants.
Suddenly weird and frightening things began to happen. And when Gethin's ailing wife appeared to have been poisoned, Miranda began to wonder about the master of Ynys Noddfa and his strange marriage.
What really terrified her was that Gethin had confessed he cared for her--and she could not deny the feelings she had for him.
Then a mysterious death threw the household into a frenzy. Now Miranda was afraid she had fallen in love with a murderer...
