Summary

Summary

I met a lady in the meads /Full beautiful, a faery's child. /Her hair was long, her foot was light, /And her eyes were wild. -John Keats, "La Belle Dame Sans Merci" Keats' famous poem might be describing Lady Meriel Grahame, the enchanting heroine of this passionate tale set amidst magical gardens. An equally appealing leading man, a thrilling love story, and a rich historical milieu make this novel positively irresistible. More pagan than lady, Meriel spends her days running barefoot through her English estate, cultivating her flowers and her mystical connection to nature. She is mute and, according to most people, mad. But handsome Dominic Renbourne, who has been sent by his twin to court her, senses in Meriel a kindred spirit. He manages to inspire her trust, and against his better judgement, her passion. Award-winning, New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling author Mary Jo Putney lives up to her reputation for creating strong, intelligent characters. Barbara Rosenblat's stimulating performance will awaken all your senses, if not the wild child in you.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“When switched identities, arranged marriages, and even the mildest case of insanity meet, a novel is bound to be an absolutely entertaining hoot. As well as creating sympathetic characters and their realistic development, Mary Jo Putney has a talent for capturing the complex rivalries of siblings.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“With many deep emotions and a powerful story, Mary Jo Putney spins a tale worthy of her Fallen Angels series. The brothers’ conflict and its resolution, and the secret of Meriel’s silence and ‘madness,’ are deeply moving and completely capture the reader. Ms. Putney delves far into the reaches of the heart to thrill her fans.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, 1999 Best Regency Historical Romance Award winner)
“Putney depicts high society, the problems of women, and the insane of Regency England. She is at her best with characterization: readers watch many people grow and relationships change in a relatively short time. With lots of romance, some comic touches, a villain, and a touch of mystery, this novel provides good entertainment.” School Library Journal
“Rosenblat animates Putney’s tale of madness and deception…In Rosenblat’s voice Dominic speaks with gentle intensity, and Kyle’s voice hardens to leaden precision. Only a master of articulate narration could so delicately have caught the nuances of this romance.” AudioFile
