Janet quickly forms a special friendship with Dorothea, William’s unhappy wife, who he is reputed to have poisoned.In order to maintain her charade and a roof over her head, Janet has to cope with a very different lifestyle while remembering two cover stories: that put about by Lady Gabriella to save face and her own invention to account for the missing years. The prodigal daughter is relaunched into local society and blunders through a variety of situations.Janet gradually adapts to her strange circumstances and settles into Georgian family life, but William eventually discovers she is an impostor and blackmails her into agreeing to marry his sister’s original suitor. Matters come to a head with a family tragedy....
