Strands of Bronze and Gold

By: Jane Nickerson

BOOK TALK

When her father dies, red-haired Sophia leaps at the chance to live a life of ease and luxury with her mysterious guardian, Bernard de Cressac.  Beautiful dresses, pampering, horses, and exotic foods seem like a dream come true, but Sophia soon becomes uncomfortable with the sometimes inappropriate attention shown to her by her guardian.  As she becomes more aware of his possessiveness and the former wives who also had red hair, she finds herself trapped as she attempts to help her family.   It is not until she meets the young preacher that she dares to hope for an escape.
