True love sometimes comes at a price.

East Kent, 1830.  Catherine Rook takes her peaceful life for granted. Her days are spent at the village school and lending a hand on her family’s farm. Life is run by the seasons, and there’s little time for worry. But rural unrest begins sweeping through Kent, and when Pa Rook buys a thrashing machine it brings turbulence and tragedy to Wanstall Farm. With the Rooks’ fortunes forever changed, Catherine must struggle to hold her family together. She turns to her childhood companion, Matty Carter, for comfort and finds more than friendship in his loving arms. But Matty has his own family to protect, and almost as suddenly as their love blossoms their future begins to unravel. With the treat of destitution nipping at her heels, Catherine must forge a way out of ruin . . .


‘An intriguing tale of family relationships and of finding love a second time around . . . I’ll be sure to look out for the next book in the series.’
Val Wood
