When Bronte agreed to marry John Baptiste, she did not have any of the idealism of most new brides. Theirs was a marriage of convenience. Lord John Baptiste needed an heir, and Bronte's family needed a quick answer to their financial woes. Unfortunately, the marriage was not the answer any of them had hoped for. Instead, it becomes the catalyst for a chain of events that could prove fatal. Almost immediately, Bronte realizes there are many strange happenings at Markby Estate, the least of which are the actions of its servants.
Addison Le Claire is the enigmatic and volatile caretaker's daughter who, though illiterate, has been singlehandedly running Markby Estate since her father's death months before. Addison discloses to Bronte that she has stayed at Markby because she wants to make extra money for a trip to Paris to study art. In truth, she is looking for clues to her mother's disappearance 22 years before. Amidst the backdrop of a nineteenth century English country estate, two women struggle to find love - and the truth that could either bind them together or tear them apart.
