This is the moving story of one woman’s struggle against great odds, with a need to belong, and a heart tragically divided. Having spent her childhood with a cold, unfeeling stepmother, Lily Clair finds her life changed forever when she is sent as a general maid to old friends of her family. At first she finds the routine rather dull, but this soon changes when the handsome Joel, son of a wealthy entrepreneur, comes on the scene. For the young and vulnerable Lily, meeting Joel is the best thing that has ever happened.
Riding high on the crest of her new-found happiness, Lily is not prepared for the violent attack that comes in the night, and neither is she prepared for its devastating, life-changing consequences. But live with those consequences she must, as with a heart torn, she must deal with one hand of fate after another.
Building to an unforgettable climax set against a plague-ravaged rural England, Lily Clair’s is an unforgettable and touching story of one woman’s search for love and fulfillment.
