this book is interesting. constance is trapped in an unhappy marriage. though initially the match was a good one, her husband has begun drinking and turned into a jealous and at times violent recluse. at this point, only the love for her children keeps constance going. things take a rapid turn, however, when she is thrown into company again with lord hardstock. not only has this gentleman some tender affection for her, but also does he supply her with miss bailie, a young woman to serve as both companion to herself as well as governess to her children. with a new member in the household, things get shaken up a bit.
