A tale of maturity, love, and passion, Mary Frances Cavallaro brings you headfirst into the world of young Fanny Dickens. This young, aspiring Shakespeare professor seems to have her life set with a fiancé in a small town back home, an exciting new job, and an attitude that rivals and rebels against her patriarchic society. Until she meets Robert Joy, a young man with a mysterious disposition that shakes Fanny's beliefs to the core. He is charming, witty, a true friend and worse, her student. What can Fanny do when she becomes torn between an old-fashioned fiancé who wants her to stay at home and an ambitious student willing her to follow her dreams and her heart?
