"Isobel Latimer, a writer known for her moral tales, is trapped by the confines of her Puritan image. Not a sarcastic word can pass her lips in public. Not a single dress can show off the faintest traces of her figure. With a literary reputation to uphold and massive, increasing debts to keep secret, Isobel is about to crack. Everyone wants a cut of her talent, time, or her money, but only she knows there's nothing left to give." -- Jacket
