Two families torn apart . . .
Two hearts drawn together . . .
One impossible love
Olivia Hewes’s one dream is to make Chatham Manor’s wool-producing venture profitable. If she fails, she’ll be forced to trade her independence for a loveless marriage. Her most threatening competition comes from neighboring estate owner Randolph Sherbourne.
Sherbourne is a beloved benefactor of the town of Otley—beloved, that is, by all except his nearest neighbors: the Hewes family of Chatham Manor. Tormented by the recent death of his father, Randolph has little time to spare for the centuries-old feud between the two estates.
When Olivia and Randolph cross paths unexpectedly, they’re drawn toward a forbidden love that will mean betraying both their families. But when they discover the shocking truth about the death of Randolph’s father, their future happiness seems doomed.
