Ruthlessly ambitious Ambrose Constantine is determined that his daughter, Annabel, shall marry into the nobility. A self-made trawler owner and fish merchant, he has only his wealth to buy his way into Society.
When Annabel’s secret meetings with a young man employed at her father’s offices stop suddenly, she finds that Gilbert has mysteriously disappeared. Heartbroken, she finds solace with her grandparents on their Lincolnshire farm, but her father will not allow her to bury herself in the countryside and enlists the help of a business connection to launch his daughter into Society.
During the London Season, Annabel is courted by James Lyndon, the Earl of Fairfield, whose country estate is only a few miles from her grandfather’s farm. Believing herself truly loved at last, Annabel accepts his offer of marriage. It is only when she arrives at Fairfield Hall that she realises the true reason behind James’s proposal and the part her scheming father has played.
Through the years that follow, Annabel will know both heartache and joy, but the birth of her son should secure the future of the Fairfield Estate. Yet there are others who lay claim to the inheritance in a feud that will not be resolved until the trenches of a bitter world war.

Visited Gunby Hall last week and saw the book on sale in the NT shop. Sought it out on Audible and have been transfixed by this story ever since. If you love a saga and the story of sacrificial, rescuing love then listen to this.

This book is the best of Margaret Dickinsons I think. It is full of ups and downs twists and turns. The plot seems tot change and the noration is perfect which makes the story line work even better. The fact that the things that go on in the book really did go on in the aristocracy of years gone by. I highly recommend this book you won’t be disappointed.
