The illegitimate daughter of an English lord, Siân Jones abandoned her heritage to live in a stalwart coal mining community in South Wales. Empowered by their cause, she's engaged to be married to the leader of a revolutionary movement that is bracing itself against the tyranny of English mine owners. But Siân's principles are unexpectedly shaken when she accepts a job as governess under Alexander Hyatt, the mysterious Marquess of Craille, the oppressive symbol of everything she has come to resist. She never expected Alexander to upend all her expectations. He is sympathetic to her cause. He is a loving father. A man of wealth and position, he is fatally attractive. And he is offering his heart to the independent woman who has illuminated his life. Now, caught between two worlds, and between the promises and desires of two men, Sian must make a choice that will define her future -- one that can only be made in the name of love.

An interesting and well written insight into life in Wales in the 1800's, attitudes of people who want change but feel there are different ways to do so.

Published in the 1990s, this stand-alone book by Balogh is more serious than her recent series. It sheds light on what life was like in 1839 in Cwmbran, South Wales. There is a shift in how the upper class treats land and people. Enjoyable and educational romance.
