After the Rain

Meggie O’Shaunessey is a thief. An unwitting one, but a thief non-the-less. When she is attacked by her employer, Meggie catches a mail-coach to London to start a new life. On the way, she meets Count Alexzy Ravanesceau and his gypsy grandmother who are fleeing Europe for reasons of their own. Alexzy employs Meggie as a maid, and they emigrate to America. Without the constraints of societal expectations will the two of them be free to pursue a relationship, or will a dark secret from  Meggie’s past tear them apart?
