This is a bizarre book. The current Lord Loveall rescues a baby from a hound on his way home one night. He then decides to present this baby as his only heir. He marries his dead sister's governess and brings up Rose as his own. Rose is brought up with 2 servant children as her only friends. Then her world comes crashing down when it is discovered that she is a he.
He is thrown out as an imposter and is banished from Love Hall.
The story as far as this synopsis goes is intriguing and interesting. Full Stop!!. I had a diffcult time getting through this book. There are times when it just does not make any sense at all. The story line gets more and more bizarre and completely unbelieveable. The characters do things that just don't make sense, starting with throwing out Rose for no discernable reason.
That said I did finish the book
