|About the Book|
Rebecca Stevens, the vicars daughter, never worried about fashion or fripperies. She was too busy keeping house for her father and helping him write out his sermons. She attends her first country-dance when she is fifteen years old and discovers that her dress and manner are lacking in sophistication compared to other girls her age. She suffers embarrassment when the young and handsome Viscount Shelby mistakes her for a child. Her humiliation is witnessed by the Earl and Countess of Ingall and in sympathy, they hire her as a companion for the countess. Over the years, under Lady Ingalls tutelage, Rebecca transforms from a timid country girl into a lady that can rival any debutante and draw the notice of any man, but can she attract the nobleman that once called her child?
