  • "Meridon knew she did not belong in th edirty, vagabond life of a gypsy. At night in her dreams the copper-haired young girl rode a great horse across the wheat-rich fields and graceful gardens of one of England's ancient estates... and in her dreams, she was mistress of all this land. The vision burned in her heart, even in the midst of the Salisbury FAir of 1805. In this harsh life, Meridon clung to her beloved sister Dandy, and became an expert rainer of horses. But Dandy always wanted more, and her greed left Meridon heartbroken and lost, following the wind and theurgings of her dream as she rode in the moonlight past the rusted gates, up the winding drive, to her home... clutching the golden clasps of the necklace that was her birthright... home at last to Wideacre."
  • ""Here is a dark, passionate tapestry of a young woman's struggle from poverty to wealth . . .of a rebellious heart's tempestuous journey toward love ... set in the savage contrasts of Georgian England, a time alive with treachery, grandeur and intrigue."--Back flap."
