About this title

Synopsis:

The Hardwicks of Morholm find the security of their comfortable and affluent existence shattered by the death of their patriarch, Joseph, and the arrival of their beautiful, orphaned cousin. Gentle, naive, and generous, Mary works as a catalyst on the introspective family circle: George, attractive and unpredictable, unwilling to face the responsibilities of his inheritance; James, his ambitious younger brother; Julia, their sullen and bitter sister. From the stately grounds of Morholm in the rural Fenlands to the crowded streets of London, from the glittering ballrooms to the tawdry bordellos, this is a panoramic portrayal of people, places and a bygone era.

From Publishers Weekly:

In his debut novel set in 18th century England, 23-year-old Wilson engagingly portrays some complicatedromantic entanglements. FollowingJoseph Hardwick's death, his cosmopolitan son George grudgingly relinquishes a life of self-indulgence and returns from London to assume control of the family's country estate, Morholm. Although perturbed by the odious responsibilities he has acquired, George is gladdened by Morholm's most cordial tenant: his cousin Mary, a girl of quiet integrity. Unfortunately, opportunistic Thomas Jarrett mesmerizes her and Georgejealously flounders in cynicism, frustration and dissipation. Simultaneously, George's gentle friend, Henry Milton, obsessively longs for a lovely but pretentious young woman who callously scorns him in favor of a wealthy suitor. When Mary and Henry realize that genuine love consists of more than infatuation, they finally find contentment with others of similarly noble character. Wilson intelligently explores class differences, morality and motivation, adding a dash of suspense to keep readers engrossed.
