This two-part adult fairytale by the author of The Secret Garden combines a charming Cinderella tale with an ironic look at class structure and the Edwardian marriage market in turn-of-the-century London. Emily Fox-Seton is distantly related to aristocracy, but she is struggling to make ends meet. When she agrees to serve the aristocracy in their beautiful garden estates, she is surprised to receive the attentions of the Marquis of Walderhurst, a man who is being widely and openly pursued for marriage.
