I decided to take a chance on this book because I was getting a little bit tired of the mainstream Zombies, Vampires, and the typical BDSM Erotica garbage that has been flooding the market lately.
Without giving too much away, this story takes place in England in the 1800's. The main character is a female named Xzan Winslow, the oldest of 8 children. Her father loses everything, so she has to do her best to help out by working as a maid for the neighbors as well as sewing for the people of the town. She is quickly married at the age of 14 to a much older man who is about to inherit a fortune from his father. Xzan thinks that she is helping her family out financially by marrying him.
But things quickly go sour when her new husband abuses her and forces her to become a virtual prisoner with no contact with her family. Soon she is pregnant, but loses the child due to the abuse.
Not long after, her husband is shot while gambling and this creates an opportunity for Xzan to sell the estate and goto America so that she can avoid her father ever forcing her to marry someone again!
This is where the story gets really good!
