Reading something wonderful book by Judith Mcnaught was a once off afternoon thing.
The world Alexandra Lawrence grew up in was a simple one surrounded by her family.
A doting grandfather, her mother, and the servants who were as close as family.
Every now and then her glamourous father would pop round from London to come and see them in the countryside.
But after his death, Alex and her mother soon realized two things.
That he had left them penniless, and that he had a mistress and an entire family stashed away in London.
Indeed the other family was more important than theirs as they would discover.
Alex’s mother is crushed and descends into a deep depression.
This leaves Alex to carry the weight of her family on her shoulders as her mother can’t or won’t.
Growing up in the countryside with only her grandfather and servants and a few close friends, she grows up with an innocent outlook on life.
Miles away in London we meet Jordan Townsend, a young titled man.
He has a cynical outlook to life because of his surroundings and those around him.
Jordan has grown up seeing how his mother has been unfaithful to her marriage.
Because of this, he sees women as a pleasurable dalliance.
The two meet up in a most unlikely way and what unfolds between the two is both painful and poignant.
A day after their wedding, Jordan disappears and Alex is heartbroken.
