Elanor Tisdale’s mother recently remarried, and it has turned their family’s world on its head.
Starting out life as a happy, middle-class, run-of-the-mill family, tragedy struck, changing their lives forever. Forced to grow up too quickly, Elanor found herself one of the main caregivers to her two younger siblings, caring more about their happiness and comfort than her own. After the wedding, the Tisdale family moves into Arthur’s somewhat cold and lifeless manor house the size of which is beyond their wildest dreams.
As often is the case, however, this new lifestyle comes with new rules as well; and they are not easy for the three Tisdale siblings to swallow. Elanor’s new stepfather hires a tutor to help the siblings adjust to their new lives and teach them about the expectations that will be placed upon them. The darkly handsome and mysteriously quiet Jasper Cole enters the household unaware of all the forces at play within the new family.
Can the Tisdales change a household that lives too far in the past? Will Elanor be able to move beyond her earlier heartbreaks to open her heart to love? Or will traditions and old-school expectations tear them all apart?
