Summary
Taking a job as a Victorian lady's maid in the household of baroness Tansor, nineteen-year-old orphan Esperanza Gorst hides the truth about her mission to uncover her mistress's secrets about a past injustice that has affected Esperanza's own life. By the author of The Meaning of Night
Summary
In the autumn of 1876, nineteen-year-old orphan Esperanza Gorst arrives at the great country house of Evenwood to become a lady's maid to the twenty-sixth Baroness Tansor. Esperanza is no ordinary servant, but has been sent by her guardian, the mysterious Madame de l'Orme, to uncover the secrets that her new mistress has sought to conceal and to set right a past injustice in which Esperanza's own life is bound up. At Evenwood, she meets Lady Tansor's two dashing sons, Perseus and Randolph, and finds herself enmeshed in a complicated web of seduction, intrigue, deceit, betrayal, and murder
