This historical novel vividly recreates 18th-century Scotland, England, and America as it recounts the tale of a duchess separated from the man she loves and tormented by her jealous husband. Jane Maxwell is determined to marry her childhood sweetheart, Thomas Fraser, but she agrees to marry the Duke of Gordon when she receives the mistaken news that Thomas is dead in North America. When Thomas returns, Jane is tormented between her lover and her husband. The one thing I did not like about this novel is how long the love triangle went on with little progress in the story line other than the characters aging. Still, a good read overall and has peaked my interest in Jane Maxwell, a fascinating 18th-century figure.
