Today’s Free Kindle eBook: Lisa
It’s time to step out on your own…Amongst the misty splendor of the English moors, Lisa tries to reconcile herself to a future without hope. A foundling raised by elderly and hardened relatives since she was nine, all she knows is the wild country of sea gorse and bracken surrounding the isolated Price farm. Enchantingly unaware of her own beauty and wit, her simple life is built around horses and dear, humble Toby, who is only two years older than her.Lisa’s early childhood is a mystery, a time she cannot remember and rarely tries to recall, having been brought up on a fragmented story about her mother dying in a terrible accident and her father paying her aunt and uncle to raise her.When Aunt Sarah suddenly announces it is time for Lisa to marry or make her living elsewhere, deep panic sets in. For the one thing Lisa does know is that she lacks the necessary fortune that would have provided her with a suitable marriage.When no other opportunity presents itself, she finds employment with village storekeepers, but they have snared a frightful and wicked secret, one which ultimately almost costs Lisa her life…It is with a stroke of luck that then she finds herself at Hartsite, a stately house where she dares to dream of wealth, happiness — and romance, alongside the handsome Jarrell brothers, sensual Eric and thoughtful Mark. Yet their cruel sister Carrie, a bitter widow, considers Lisa an ignorant country fool and will stop at nothing to get her out of the home.Growing closer to the Jarrell brothers, Lisa faces deeply difficult questions about her own past. As Carrie’s mental health deteriorates, tragedy strikes and gruesome truths that have remained hidden for years are unearthed…Can Lisa finally find peace and become Mistress of Hartsite?Praise for Joan Van Every Frost ‘A moving saga of fiery passions’ – Holly KinsellaJoan Van Every Frost was born in 1929 in California.
