Second in the series 'The Strongs of Summerleas Farm' and sequel to 'The Worst of Lies'. A story of second chances... In the mid-nineteenth century, marriage meant 'till death us do part', exactly as promised before God; no chance of divorce, no way out. Hampshire, England, 1842. When Mary Strong reluctantly gave up the chance to escape her empty marriage and run away with Francis, the man she loved, she never expected that she would see him again. So when, ten years later, he returns to the village, Mary's feelings are thrown into turmoil. But when Francis tells her that her husband, George, is being unfaithful with his sister-in-law, Annie, she sees a chance to finally get what she wants. This time, though, she cannot simply run away but must find another means to be free from her loveless marriage. And that means joining forces with Annie, who has only ever despised her. But in her quest for happiness, has Mary underestimated how deeply her unorthodox plan will divide the family and is she prepared for what she will subsequently find out about the beautiful and mysterious Frenchwoman, Geneviève, with whom Francis has spent the last ten years? And when she is finally forced to make choice, will she find the courage to grasp her second chance?
