A Westcott Novel
When Harry Westcott shipped off to fight in the Napoleonic Wars, he was near-fatally wounded. After recovering, Harry has become a reclusive man. Though Harry insists he enjoys the solitude, he does wonder sometimes if he is lonely. Lydia Tavernor is recently widowed. Her marriage to Reverend Isaiah Tavernor was one of service and obedience. Sometimes, she wonders if she is lonely. They find themselves alone together one night, and Lydia asks a simple question: "Are you ever lonely?" Harry's answer leads them down a path neither could ever have imagined.
