Description: Adela Wyss, a 25 year old spinster, would like nothing more than to spend time building her trinkets. Her mother and father have something else in mind: marriage. Adela is a rebellious girl who constantly turns away suitors with her sharp-tongue leading her parents to arrange a marriage with a French Lord turned recluse. The story follows Adela’s stay with the Lord Lautrec as they get to know each and Adela finds that perhaps the only thing to be worried about is the Lord’s health.
