Content descriptions

General Note: "One woman - two loves..." -- Cover.
Summary: "Dorset, 1917. If it's not enough that a girl from a good background is forced to work as a maid, Livia Carr is then violated by the master of the house and becomes pregnant. Her only course is to marry the son of the house, Richard Sangster, a World War One hero who has returned home an invalid. He is not expected to live, and he offers Livia and the child legitimacy, as well as his name and estate. Livia grows to love Richard, but even though it's expected, his death comes as a great blow to her. Into the breach steps Livia's first love, and Richard's friend, Denton Elliot. But will he desert her when the secret of the child's parentage is revealed to him . . . ?"--Jacket.
