about this book: By 1804 the pretty young English girl, Kate, had lost both her parents, and came under the guardianship of her aunt and uncle, who paid her remaining school fees. Upon finishing at her boarding school, she went to live with them. But it soon became clear that they found her a nuisance and wished to marry her off as soon as they could arrange a coming out ball for her.

Kate, however, had become attracted to the handsome gardener, Barnes, whose flirtatious manner introduced her to feelings she had never previously encountered. But she knew that Society would simply not countenance such a relationship, and sadly tried to forget Barnes and agreed to marry a more suitable match.

After the wedding, however, she finds that her new husband is not the man she hoped he would be, and she is very unhappy, stranded at his country home with his very stern mother, while he continues his womanising ways in London. When he returns from London Kate catches him in a compromising situation with one of the servants, and she decides to leave him and flees to the home of a sympathetic friend, where she again encounters Barnes.

She realises that she still has strong feelings for Barnes, but knows that if she leaves her husband for the gardener, her place in Society will be gone for ever and she will be known by all as a 'fallen woman'. Can she bear the thought of being ostracised, or will she accept her fate as an unhappy, but 'respectable' married woman?
