But she had sacrificed that calling when she married the dashing and sophisticated Aubrey St. Clare. When they return home to London, however, Aubrey has changed.

And even more menacing, Aubrey has met the sinister Dr. Damien Adar, whose hold over him is fierce and frightening....

From Library Journal:

In this Victorian romance, Susanna Pleydell loses her husband to drugs and her dearly loved child to her husband's neglect. She develops an obsessive hatred for Damien Adair, the physician she holds responsible for both tragedies. She tries to forget by taking up a nursing career, eventually going to the Crimea. There, working beside Dr. Adair, she finds herself attracted to him despite her hatred. The ending is predictable. This is one of the better Holt novels, with a well-drawn historical background. Susanna does not always make sense, but she is a strong and loving woman whose friendships ignore class boundaries. Literary Guild main selection. Marylaine Block, St. Ambrose Coll. Lib., Davenport, Ia.
