When Sarah Thornton boards the train, she thinks only of her babys safety. Fate takes a twist; the train crashes and she is mistaken for a very wealthy Mrs. Halliday.

Honor demands that Nicholas Halliday care for his sister-in-law and his nephew and heir. By the time Sarah realizes what has happened she is torn between telling the Hallidays the truth or keeping quiet for her sons sake.

Sarah fits into the family and begins to believe that she has done what is best for her child. Yet her conscience isnt clear, especially when she begins falling in love with Nicholas.

When she disappears, along with some valuable jewels, Nicholas grows suspicious. He follows Sarah and discovers more than he expected.

This novel explores just how far a mother will go to protect her child. Ms. St. Johns sweet, touching romance does pull at your heartstrings, but lacks some of the fire of her previous historicals. Still, readers will enjoy shedding a few tears with Sarah and Nicholas. SENSUAL (Sep., 300 pp., $4.99)
