The Determined Woman
“Secrets are like walls, Isabella,” her father told her. “They will protect you and those around you from the pain the outside world can inflict, and the harm that spawns beyond them, but only temporarily. Because no matter how shocking or terrible those secrets are, eventually, they always come out.”
After her father’s death leaves Isabella penniless and a business with mounting debts, out of sheer desperation she takes on the challenge of reviving it.
Youth and inexperience working against her, Isabella soon realizes that hard work and determination are not going to get her what she wants. Determined not to give up, Isabella has no choice but to enlist the help of Antonio Sabatini—her father’s landlord.
Caught off guard by his strong attraction to Isabella from the moment they meet, Antonio willingly agrees to help her in any way he can. His offer of help, however, exposes Isabella to the destructive forces that will change her life forever and introduces her to the man who holds a decades-old secret that will shock her to the core.
A STORY OF SECRETS, BETRAYAL, DISCOVERY, AND THE TENDER ROMANCE THAT PROMPTS IT ALL TO COME TO THE FOREFRONT.
