Summary:  Seventeen year old Briony Duke lives in a manor house with her guardian Mrs. Eyres and Eyres's daughter Lucy. Mrs. Eyres makes Briony sleep in the kitchen, cook, clean and do the laundry. One day Briony meets nineteen year old Tom Logan,the sixth richest man in the country. Tom is intelligent, articulate and incredibly attractive. The only problem is. Mrs. Eyres and Lucy have also set their sights on him.

The story begins with Briony Duke, the main character, who is nine going on ten. When she loses her parents in a car wreck, she has to be taken care of by her guardian, Mrs. Eyres. Soon after her parent's funeral, she becomes a maid for Mrs. Eyres and her daughter, Lucy. She has to cook, clean, and go to school every day until she turns eighteen. When she meets, Tom Logan, one of the richest men in the country, her life changes. But is Tome someone she could lose to Mrs. Eyres and Lucy? If you know me, then you know that I love my fairy tales, so this was definitely a good read. Although the writing was a bit hard for me to understand at times, it was still an enjoyable read.
