However, when she receives a proposal from Ned Howarth — a kind yeoman farmer — she puts aside her prejudices and agrees to become his wife.
The couple’s family and friends all disapprove of the match. And as the mistress of Ned’s farm, Kit’s Hill, Dorcas feels isolated and unwelcome.
But as she learns more about the land and the household, she begins to find ways to put her shrewdness and education to good use…
Can Dorcas find her place at Kit’s Hill? Will she and Ned find true happiness together?
Or will they come to regret their hasty marriage?
Kit’s Hill is the first book in The Brief Chronicles, a gripping family saga by Jean Stubbs.
