Maggie of King Street hoped singing with the Royal Italian Opera might provide her with a way to escape a dangerous man from her past. Although Maggie's singing skills fail to secure her a job with the opera, they do provide an introduction to Charles Crossham, Lord Edgington. Because of a wager, Charles needs an unsophisticated, unrefined woman whom he can successfully turn into a lady. Hoping it might be the break she desperately needs, Maggie accepts Charles' offer, and she is soon ensconced in a new home and being trained in all the social graces. But all her hard work is threatened by Maggie's desire for her new employer and a vindictive villain, who will stop at nothing to destroy her chance at a new life. Joyce's quietly chilling sense of suspense, expertly crafted Victorian London setting, and two beautifully nuanced, wonderfully complicated characters provide the key ingredients for a deliciously dark, superbly written tale of love, honor, and redemption. John Charles
