When Stephen Kenyon, Duke of Ashburton, receives the news that he has, at most, six months to live, he bolts. For the first time in is life, he flees his home and responsibilities. In his travels he encounters a group of traveling actors, and, slowly but surely, he finds he is attaching himself to the spirited, caring "family" and especially to the adopted daughter Rosalind. Their love, under the cloud of his pain and imminent death, forms the backdrop for this appealing, sensuous, and sensitive story of love--its loss and its discovery--and above all the importance of family, whether acquired by birth or by accident.

Since my introduction to varied and wonderful world of historical romance, 2 years ago. I have read many books, never going places without one in my hand or on my person. Some have been stories to make you laugh and cry, to make you cheer and pray, to make you bark out laughter at a character's cleverness, and un fortunately some have made me mad with disappointment. Leading me in with a promise of an intriguing story and character's with promising potential, but this book....... HAS DELIVERED!!!!!! I love the character development but she doesn't dwell on the tragedy of our Rose's past or get's side tracked with the intriguing side characters she stay's on track and gave me one of the best experiences EVER!!!!! this book, the love, the adventure, the strength of both heroin and hero; which he most certainly is, the joy it brought me and the tears all granting me one of the greatest emotional experiences over a story, as I said before, ever. If your looking for a moving well written story with great depth and great characters please read this book I beg of you!!!! It is worth it! I'm even buying it so that I may read it again whenever I desire, and boy do I desire.
