Annotation "Queen Victoria's close friend, the Scottish Duke of Buccleuch, Lady Margaret Montagu Scott is expected to make an advantageous marriage. But Margaret is an impulsive and outspoken girl in a repressive society where women are, quite literally, caged in corsets and required to conform. When Lady Margaret's parents arrange a society marriage for her, she tries to reconcile herself to the match. But shortly before her betrothal is announced, Margaret flees, leaving her parents to explain her sudden absence to an opulent ballroom stuffed with two hundred distinguished guests. Banished from polite society, Margaret throws herself into charitable work and finds strength in a circle of female friends like herself-women intent on breaking the mold, including Queen Victoria's daughter Princess Louise. Margaret resolves to follow her heart-a journey of self-discovery that will take her to Ireland, America, and then back to Britain where she finds the life she was always meant to lead." -- Provided by publisher. -- Unrated.
