Another one for the challenge!
Annunciata's mother decides to send her to London in order to secure a "good match" as she feels her beauty and fortune deserve something more than Yorkshire has to offer. For her the Court is the ideal place - Annunciata is a schemer, she is beautiful but her loyalty to her roots is absolute.
The story of Annunciata begins on a high but ends with a lot of sadness and intrigue. However at the very end there is closure for both Ralph and Annunciata when they realize what their true feelings are.
As I have said before the story of Morland Place and the Morland Dynasty in particular set against whatever period of history of the time is beautifully depicted. Not only does one get an idea of the family saga of the Morlands but one is also deeply involved in the history of that time.
