In the late 19th Century, England was effectively split into two ‘countries' - that of the aristocratic and rich, and all those below them. One day William Jones, the young son of a rich merchant, pays a visit to his former governess Mrs Stowmar. When he arrives, there is an instant connection between him and Emma, the hard-working and beautiful young maid who works there. After several chance encounters their attraction deepens, but their difference in social status is something which cannot be ignored. With William's father refusing to give his consent to their relationship and intent on arranging a marriage for him with Eleanor, the daughter of a Viscount, there are an increasing number of obstacles standing in their way. In a society where the relationship between a humble maid and a gentleman is forbidden and one is expected to marry within their social rank, can Emma and William's love survive?

Now in my mid-twenties, while I no longer try to pet any unwilling amphibian in my path, I am still more likely to be diving headfirst into a sea of shounen goodness rather than weeping my way through romantic dramas. However, one lusciously... read more
