A novel by

 
 
A beautifully evocative eighteenth-century saga, by the bestselling author of A Time to Love. It is 1755 and the wealthy Bradbury family has taken a house in the spa town of Bath for the season. Lady Hermione Bradbury has recently given birth to a long-awaited son, who is being suckled by wet nurse Suki Brown. Suki's own son, Jack, the result of a springtime romance with one Captain Jack, is a thriving, happy baby, in stark contrast to the Bradbury infant William, who dies suddenly. On the spur of the moment - and because she needs the work - Suki pretends that it is her Jack that has died. And so she remains with the family while she embarks on a year-long quest to find her handsome Captain. Captain Jack, a man with a mysterious past as a successful highwayman, sets sail for the West Indies shortly after being confronted with a paternity claim and Suki believes all is lost for ever. But as a slave on one of the Bradbury family's ships, the Bonny Beaufoy, Captain Jack - once impervious to the plight of the slaves around him - begins to prove that he is a man capable of the full gamut of human emotion. If only young Suki knew...
