Love isn’t something you find. Love is something that finds you . . .
When teacher Leo Tyndale moves to the small English town of Sandercombe after five years in India, he does not expect that his time at the local school will be a long one.
But a brief encounter with the beautiful—and fiercely independent—Hestia Royce soon has him changing his mind.
As he settles into his new position, Leo finds that his mind increasingly wanders to Hestia.
She is known by his pupils as “the strange woman”, who left Sandercombe to be married, and returned without a husband to a town rife with rumors. Leo can’t help wondering what happened . . .
Soon his feelings for her grow, though she is reluctant and soon the rumours about their supposed relationship swirl around Sandercombe.
Leo knows Hestia feels the same.
Will they ever be able to admit it to each other?
Or will Leo return to India forever?
