Kate had worshipped her foster brother, David, since she was a child. Now, he was returning from the Napoleonic War broken in body and spirit. Kate discovered she might be older, but she was no wiser, and she could not stop the transformation of childhood infatuation into the love for the only man in the world for her. David had become a bitter, angry stranger. She could only hope for the miracle that would help her erase the soul and melt the heart of the man who no longer seemed to have one. David had returned to attend his father's deathbed. The shame of his illegitimacy burned within him and the members of his adoptive family had always held him in contempt. All, that is, except for Kate, the little girl he had come to love as a sister so many years ago. Now, though, his feelings for her were far from brotherly. Would David and Kate finally be able to express their deep love for each other?
