But their first encounter leaves them both with the certainty that something momentous has occurred. Before long, they're engaged in a forbidden liaison - one that will have profound ramifications for Kitty's personal life and Charles's brilliant political career. As their love affair plays out on the world stage, scandal and a scorned husband's revenge conspire to destroy everything Charles has worked to achieve for the Irish. Set against the tumultuous backdrop of late-nineteenth-century England and Ireland, Dorothy Eden's most ambitious novel weaves a passionate, heartbreaking story of a larger-than-life man and woman whose only crime is falling in love
