While she was working for Lord Paxton, who was dying, she read to him and help take care of him. He would tell her and her son all about his son, David .
Now since Lord Paxton has passed away, alone per his wish, Mary is surprised that he left Darnley to her. It was so unexpected but gracious. She knows her son will be better and not breathe the putrid air of London's air.
David Arlington is hurt and morning his father then gets the added news that Darnley. He believes that Ms. Milne is a schemer and defrauded his father but would not do the same with him. That is until he meets her.
Follow along as Mary and David fall in love while reminiscing about his father, what is was like growing up at Darnley, and how Stevie (her son) would find growing up there

Love this story as it starts out with Mary and she's on her way to the lawyer. She fears more bad news and is quite happy with the news he does share.
She is to get the lodge where she had been a companion to the Lord Paxton when he was alive. She'd read to him and play card games, etc. She also was able to bring her young son with her and he loved it there especially because his breathing problems were more better there.
When they were sent away due to his illness they returned to the city where she had no income and they lived on the edge of poverty.
Story also follows Lord's son David who was the heir. HE's upset because he loved the lodge where the men would assemble and hunt and ride. He didn't make it back last Christmas and he had a letter from his father to attend this year although he's dead.
He travels there, rescues a woman walking towards the lodge and as she sprained her ankle he helps her. He then learns who she is, the one who will take over the estate and his inheritance will pay the bill.
Love the connection they have to the lesser people in town and how they are able to tend to them.
There are some misunderstandings and you wonder if she will up and leave it all behind......or if he will just give in and give it all to her....
Their bond as they spend time together has grown to more than like one another.
Love this story and how it took me away from my problems for just a few hours. What a treasure.
