Beth thought she had been rescued from a life of servitude by an offer of marriage from gentleman farmer Edgar Collins, but her future would be bleaker than she could ever imagine and married life was far from bliss....
When the legitimacy of her twin babies with Edgar is called into question, the tiny infants are taken from Beth and sent far away. James is adopted by Edgar's uncle, the very wealthy Lord Redfern, master of Redfern Abbey. But little Daisy is sent to a cold-hearted childless couple who raise her to be a maid rather than a daughter.
When Daisy, at 16, finally escapes her hard life with her adoptive brother, Boyd, they arrive at the abbey to seek work and refuge. Little does Daisy know that her flesh and blood is the next in line to be Lord of the Abbey. There is a strange connection between Daisy and James, something they can neither explain nor ignore. But will the truth be discovered in time?

Back in time
sort of middling or just above. The story moved a a gentle pace giving a true feeling of what life was like for young people, and for girls, in particular, at that time.
The most memorable part for me was when the heroine was unjustly forced to choose to give up her daughter in order to at least keep contact with her son, and then lost him too.
