Publisher's Summary

An unconventional woman defies the rules of noble turn-of-the-century Sweden in an epic novel of love, secrets, family ties, and rediscovery by the bestselling author of The Moonlit Garden.

Sweden, 1913. Having petitioned the court for independence from her aristocratic family, the young and vibrant Agneta Lejongård takes control of her destiny. In Stockholm, she explores her bohemian passions in art and free love, joins the suffragette movement with her best friend, and defiantly resists the expectations of women in high society. Then comes news of a tragic accident and an urgent summons to return to the family’s manor house in the country. As for Agneta’s forward path in life, she must now follow it back home. 

Though the grand horse-breeding estate of Lion Hall stirs some warm memories, what lies ahead tests Agneta’s independent spirit: a disapproving mother locked in the traditions of a woman’s proper place, two men vying for Agneta’s heart, and a twist of fate that upends her life once again. Torn between a daughter’s duty and the freedom she pines for, Agneta struggles not only to rebuild her future, but also to protect the future of Lion Hall itself. Forging a new path brings challenges, rewards, and a true purpose that she never could have imagined.

overall it was good

This book was good but at some point, I was really pulling my hair, I was kind of annoyed with the heroine in the last couple of chapters she was getting annoyed because I felt like all her strength was somehow lost.

so everything was perfect and flowing well until the end when I really felt like all the boldness and strength she built during the whole book was completely lost.

This is the story of Agneta, she was studying in another part of the world when she had to come back after her father's death, not really feeling welcome from her mother's side, her mother wanted to change everything and even her dreams, she didn't agree of Agneta's life choices or ideas but at the end, the relationship will change and see better days.

Many lies, many deceptions a few twists and turns you won't see them coming, and anything that she didn't deserve in the end will be solved.

The book was good the story was good but in the end, that really was not what I was looking for.

So many good characters Agneta's mother was a character that I was disliking most of the time not knowing what she went through or why she was acting that way but in the end, she was a strong character

overall was a good story

the narrations by Nina Yndis were good she really brought so much to the story and the characters
