Returning to the story of the Westmoreland family, #1 New York Times bestselling author Judith McNaught has written the novel her fans have been clamoring for since Whitney, My Love - a marvelous tale that sweeps from the wilds of America to the elegant ballrooms of 1820s London, taking a beautiful, spirited girl on a glorious romantic adventure.
A teacher in a school for wealthy young ladies, Sheridan Bromleigh is hired to accompany one of her students, heiress Charise Lancaster, to England to meet her fiancé. When her young charge elopes with a stranger, Sheridan wonders how she will ever explain it to Charise's intended, Lord Burleton. Standing on the pier, Stephen Westmoreland, the Earl of Langford, assumes the young woman coming toward him is Charise Lancaster -and informs her of his inadvertent role in a fatal accident involving Lord Burleton the night before. And just as Sheridan is about to speak, she steps into the path of a cargo net loaded with crates!
Three days later, Sheridan awakens in Stephen Westmoreland's London mansion with no memory of who she is - the only hint of her past, the puzzling fact that everyone calls her Miss Lancaster. All she truly knows is that she is falling in love with a dazzlingly handsome English earl, and that the life unfolding before her seems full of wondrous possibilities.
