Publisher's Summary

Lorna Barnett is tired of playing the role of "good girl" that her mother has always lived, and that high society prizes. It isn't until she meets Jens Harken that she realizes she yearns to be cherished for herself. Although Jens is a servant, his strength and intelligence put all the society men she's met to shame.

Jens knows their love is forbidden, but he can't keep away from the spirited, headstrong girl who's stolen his heart. His boat-building skills are his one way to break into society, and when he designs his first boat for Lorna's father, it seems that perhaps they can make a life together.

Then their love bears fruit that cannot be ignored - one that makes their love evident to the world, and threatens to keep them apart forever. Unless Lorna can find a way to make a stand for the man she loves, and defy the society in which she lives.

Beautiful Story

Set in 1895 in Minnesota. Lorna is the daughter of rich socialites who is tom-boy-esque, loves to sail, and finds female past-times of the period menial and boring. Jens is the kitchen handy-man who also has a passion for boats. He is the Norwegian son of a boat builder and has the dream of opening his own boat works. Lorna pursues Jens, who initially holds her at arms-length but finds her charming and irresistible. The two fall in love and Lorna becomes pregnant. Her parents refuse Jens' marriage request and send Lorna away to a convent where she is effectively brainwashed.

It's all very frustrating and sad because Lorna and Jens seem to have found true love and the potential for happiness but her parents rip it away. The chemistry between Lorna and Jens rings true.

Emily Sutton-Smith was amazing with the delivery of the story

Wonderful

One of my favorite books that she's written ever. Don't particularly care for the narrator but it didn't take away from the story. She is the best writer it's ever been.
