Summary
When Lord Frampton dies in a skiing accident, a beautiful young woman named Phaedra appears at his funeral--claiming to be the lord's illegitimate daughter. In his will, Lord Frampton has left the priceless Frampton suite of sapphires to this interloper, confirming her claim and outraging his three adult sons and widow. Eventually, however, Phaedra's sweet nature thaws the frosty relationships. She becomes the daughter that Antoinette Frampton never had and a wise and compassionate granddaughter to the formidable Dowager Lady Frampton. But an attraction grows between Phaedra and the eldest son, David. It seems an impossible love--blocked by their blood connection and by the fury of one family member who is determined to expose Phaedra as a fraud
