For Anthea, reduced to accepting the charity of irascible Lord Darricot, had been ordered to marry Hugh, recent heir to the Darricot fortune. Grandfather Darricot's plan seemed perfect-to Grandfather: Hugh, the offspring of his son and a common weaver's daughter, might bring an unsuitable wife into the family.

But the infant Cupid was shooting his arrows with an appalling lack of aim that season."; 5" - 6" Tall
