Paperback / softback
Cornwall, 1801. In the wake of her mother's death, Pandora Woodville is desperate to escape her domineering father and finally return to Cornwall.
Posing as a widow, she safely makes it across the Atlantic, bright with the dream of working at her Aunt Harriet's school for young women.
But as Pandora is soon to learn, the school is facing imminent closure after a series of sinister events threatened its reputation. Acclaimed chemist Benedict Aubyn has also recently returned to Cornwall, to take up a new role as Turnpike Trust Surveyor.
Pandora's arrival has been a strange one, so she is grateful when he shows her kindness.
As news of the school's ruin spreads around town, everyone seems to be after her aunt's estate.
Now, Pandora and Aunt Harriet must do everything in their power to save the school, or risk losing everything. However, Pandora has another problem. She's falling for Benedict. But can she trust him, or is he simply looking after his own interests?
