When Phoebe was young her mother died leaving her to the care of a much older half brother. His wife uses Phoebe as a maid-of-all-work. Phoebe works hard with nothing in return. Her sister in law is not nice to her and the children have no respect for her. But all of that is nothing compared to the man to whom her sister in law is trying to marry her off.
Phoebe has no time for social life and therefore has no friends. Miranda (from Marcia Schuyler) helps her out one time and a friendship blossoms between the two. But Phoebe's sister-in-law does not think Phoebe should have time for friends.
The over-worked, lonely girl struggles for a while before falling sick. Miranda works hard to free Phoebe but the sister-in-law stands in the way.
Will Phoebe find freedom, friends, and real love?
This is not one of my favorite books. It's good and I like it but it is not one of my favorites.
Miranda of course was great! She goes to great lengths to help her friend.
This book was a nice addition to Marcia Schuyler and if you liked that one you will have to read this one.
It can be found on Amazon and eBay.
