From the Publisher:
Evan, Tessa, Linnet, and India: four remarkable women. Three generations of Hartes. One indomitable family whose loyalty binds them together and whose enemies want to tear them apart. Evan Hughes, Emma's American great-granddaughter, is trying to integrate into the powerful Harte family. She is caught between her estranged parents, her new family, and new love. But a dangerous enemy hovers in the background. Tessa Longden, Evan's cousin, is battling her husband for custody of their daughter, Adele. When Adele suddenly goes missing, Tessa is forced to seek help from her half-sister Linnet--a woman who has been her rival all their lives. Linnet, the most brilliant businesswoman of the four great-granddaughters, is desperately trying to show that she is the natural heir to her mother, Paula. And India Standish, the traditionalist in the family, falls in love with a famous British artist from a working-class background. Madly in love, India is determined to marry him, no matter what her family thinks.

Annotation:
The trials and tribulations of Emma Harte's descendants continue in this fifth volume of the Harte family saga, which began with the blockbuster A WOMAN OF SUBSTANCE. American Evan Hughes has learned that her father is an illegitimate descendant of Emma Harte, the legendary family matriarch and founder of the English department store where Evan currently works. Should she share this revelation with her estranged father? And what of her romance with Gideon, another Harte great-grandchild? Meanwhile, Emma's great-granddaughter Tessa is engaged in a bitter custody battle for her daughter Adele when Tessa's soon-to-be ex kidnaps the little girl. And Harte descendant India Standish defies her family when she decides to marry a man of whom they do not approve.
