Betrothed to a rich young tyrant, her baby would have proven to be a scandal in the city, and they were doing their best to cover it up.
As a result, Belinda ran away to make her own life, and soon reached news that her parents had tragically passed. Determined to remain on her feet, Belinda refuses to go back to her rich estate.
Instead, when things get hard, she becomes a mail-order bride and heads out west. The man she marries has a small child, about the same age as her own child would have been.
She can’t help but fall in love with the family, but there seems to be a dark secret he’s not telling her.
Why doesn’t he ever mention his first wife? What happened to her? Is Belinda going to face the same fate his previous wife did, or is she simply going crazy?
