                Gwell fy mwthyn fy hun na phlas arall.
     “Better my own cottage than the palace of another.”

After her mother’s death by misadventure, all Phoebe wants is a quiet life as a fashion designer—not marriage. But her uncle threatens legal action to take the cottage and land she’s loved since childhood. In order to prevent him from stealing her inheritance, she must find the father she never knew and enter into a marriage of convenience with a Welsh nobleman, James Kensington Parker. She journeys with her new husband to South Africa in the days leading up to a Boer war, struggling to merge a hidden past with an uncertain future amid assassination attempts, betrayal, murder, and a growing attraction to her in-name-only husband, all during the tumult of turn-of-the-century England.
