‘Congratulations, you are now officially out in society.’

The words made her spirits plummet. Out in society. On the market. And firmly set on a well-worn path that had only one destination. Marriage.

London 1865

When one act of rebellion costs Lady Margaret Montagu Douglas Scott her place in society, her life is swept onto a new course. One that will test her courage and resilience.

From the drawing rooms of Victoria’s court to the grand country houses of Ireland, and the bustling streets of New York City; Margaret embarks on a journey of self-discovery where she will meet like-minded, and equally spirited, companions who shape her world.

But as she navigates the challenges of forging her own path in life, will she find the greatest courage of all, to follow her heart against all odds...?
