Rebecca North is getting married today. . .or is she? A childish promise from five years before when she saved the life of an English soldier during the Revolutionary War comes back to haunt her. Who is this Nicholas Wythe, Lord Foxbridge, whom she promised to love and honor? She must discover the truth as they travel across the sea to England and Foxbridge Cloister and a world that is not ready for such a Lady Foxbridge. Maybe she and Nicholas can fall in love. . .for real this time, but not if the duplicity raging around them destroys them both first.
