About the Author:

Janet Woods' previous books include ""The Stonecutter's Daughter ""and ""Where Seagulls Soar,""""""


Who is Sara Finn? Is she the baby sister long thought dead by the Honeyman sisters in Salting the Wound (2010)? Adam Chapman sets out to determine if the baby exists and is truly the love child of sea captain Erasmus Thornton. Sara is happy to find a good position as a housekeeper at Leighton Manor in Dorset County. Her early life is a blur: first the home she hardly remembers, then the farm where she labored incessantly, followed by the workhouse, and lastly her position as an unpaid maid for a reverend by whom she was summarily dismissed when his oldest son tried to kiss her and she slapped him. Adam finds Sara at Leighton Manor and immediately falls in love with her, not knowing for certain whether she is the woman he is searching for. Once again Woods gives her readers an appealing historical romance with intriguing, multidimensional characters. --Booklist, 1st May 2010
