At the end of Victorian seranade #1, Corrine had accepted Christ and become determined to seek out her long-abandoned husband and daughter to beg forgiveness and make amends. In this second book of the series, however, she is intercepted by Mr. Price, a detective who represents someone in her old life who now wants vengeance for the wrongs that she did. An unbeliever, he refuses to see that Corrine in reborn into a different person and continues with his plan to abduct her and deliver her to the man that she had wronged in the past. As they journey together, it becomes clear to her that Mr. Price is a very sick man, perhaps even at death's door. Although his illness gives her chance to escape, her new Christian faith will not allow her to leave him to die alone, and she cares for him for weeks on end. In the meantime, Corrine's daughter Jenny is taken out of her impoverished home and sent to the home of a wealthy landowner. However, this move soon proves to not be good for Jenny, as she realizes that the mistress of the house borders on insanity. Will Corrine be able to break away from Mr. Price? Will Jenny still be in her original home when Corrine arrives there? More importantly, is Jenny's life in danger with her "new Mother?" This a very good continuation of this series, and I highly recommend it.
