Emmaline has always understood from her mother that, as the eldest of four daughters, she must marry. But it seems that no proposals are going to come her way. Until, at a crowded ball, Julius makes his way to her side and waltzes her off. The next morning he makes it plain that he wants to marry her and will marry her no matter what. So Emmaline finds herself travelling to England from America to join her husband-to-be, her hopes as high as they have ever been. What greets her when she arrives, however, is a strange house full of odd guests and eccentric servants. It is a far cry from the glorious place that Julius had described to her. Indeed, as the days go by, her fiance seems to change beyond recognition and Emmaline becomes more and more unhappy. Is there any future to their relationship? CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE AND/OR ADULT THEMES.
