When Addie left her sheltered Mississippi life to become governess to Ceddy Whitfield, she never dreamed she’d be undertaking her most challenging role yet. But after a brutal attack on her peculiar charge and a break-in that threatens the serenity of Whitfield Manor, Addie’s coveted new life is set on a dangerous course. What could a little boy have that thieves are so eager to find?
The importance of looking beyond the outward appearance to find the true worth of others.
Why the author wrote this book:
I wanted a very different storyline and setting for Tiller McRae's daughter and for the final chapter in the McRae family's tale. I decided a chance meeting with a treasure hunter and a brush with danger would suit her well.
