PARFIT KNIGHT, THE

Synopsis

The Marquis of Amberley is forced to take shelter at Oakleigh Manor when his coach is waylaid by highwaymen. It is the home of beautiful Rosalind Vernon who lives alone but for her devoted servants, cut off from the outside world by the tragic result of a childhood accident. On his return to London, the Marquis persuades Rosalind's brother, Philip, to bring her to town for a taste of society. But Amberley is haunted by a dark and terrible secret that, if revealed, may cause him to lose Rosalind forever.
