Proper English governess Eleanor Morgan flees to the colonies to escape the wrath of a brute of an employer. When the Charles Town family she’s to work for never arrives to collect her from the dock, she is forced to settle for the only reputable choice remaining to her—marriage to a man she’s never met. Trapper and tracker Samuel Heath is a hardened survivor used to getting his own way by brain or by brawn, and he’s determined to find a mother for his young daughter. But finding a wife proves to be impossible. No upstanding woman wants to marry a murderer. – from author’s website
The storyline to the book felt very much like another book I had read several years ago – so much so that I was tempted to put the book down. It was only about half way through the book that it started sounding unique from the book I had read previously and I started enjoying it. There was nothing that really stood out for me as something super special about the story. It was a nice little story but it wasn’t that memorable.
