When Beatrice Braxley was a child, she always envisioned her life a certain way. At first, she imagined herself becoming a lady like her mother, stoic and respected, nothing ever able to put her down. But when she realized that her mother had more of these down turns than she could handle, mostly because of her own mistakes, Beatrice decided to rebel.
There was a time in her twenties and early thirties where her disobedience caused quite the dissension among the family, but it passed as most things do, and she ended up back at the family manor — miserable and with a secret. As she got older she dug herself out of despair to become the honorable lady of Braxley manor. Beatrice was head of their centuries old family business while her sister Anne started a family.
After her sister’s untimely death, Beatrice is persuaded to journey to Scotland with her estranged niece and here she discovers a part of herself that was lost long ago. Would Beatrice find someone to fill the gap in her life she never knew was there?
An old woman with a lifetime of experiences, but here she finds her life truly beginning in the city of Aberdeen.
