about this book: When Lady Margaret Hutchinson entertains the young and handsome Captain Hargrove while Major Jonathan Hutchinson is away at war in Africa, the child conceived as a consequence can only cause a scandal and the downfall in society for Lady Hutchinson. Set in Victorian Oxford, Poppy begins her life abandoned and subjected to a life of cruelty and misery under the guardianship of the wicked Sidney and Dora Woods in the quiet hamlet of Hurst, on the outskirts of Oxford. Befriended by the Greenfield family who endeavour to make her life more bearable, an unbreakable bond between Poppy and Ella Greenfield is created and they become like sisters. Ella's older brother becomes Poppy's childhood sweetheart, and makes it his duty to protect her from harm whenever possible. When a tragedy strikes, Poppy is forced to leave the hamlet and go in search of work. Her journey into Oxford and a meeting with an old, destitute woman brings Poppy closer to her roots. How far is Lady Hutchinson prepared to go to conceal her dark secret, and when Poppy's childhood sweetheart falls for the flamboyant Angelina Bellini, will she ever find true love again?

Poppy's courage, and determination give her an inner strength, and her compassionate nature portrays how after years of neglect and hardship, her heart remains full of love.
