    Summary

    !REWORK!

    He's your best friend. You could do so so much worse. How bad could it be?

    Would she really have married him if she'd known the answer to that? Would she have given freely her autonomy if she had known just how much of it he would take, known what she would be giving up?

    A year into her marriage Dani gets the chance to teach at an elite boarding school with an enigmatic gardener who wiggles her way under her skin and into her mind. And for the first time finds herself falling heart first into lust.

    Pressures at home force her to re-evaluate her life choices, and finding the strength to say no when she means it.

    Summary

    "Once all the dirt and blood are wiped away, Dani is nonplussed by the new brilliance that Jamie’s face exudes. Under it all, Dani finally recognizes the woman she had expected to see. Sure, there are blemishes through purple bruises and gnarly scrapes, but she’s there. And it reassures Dani in a way that she can’t even explain. As if she has always known her, and it only took a matter of cleansing to reveal any familiar comfort."

    It's 1980. After finding herself in immense danger, Jamie Taylor returns home to Bly after leaving suddenly five years prior. She is met by her bereaved family, the consequences of her departure, and a new face; Dani Clayton—a young American woman on her own journey to self-discovery and confronting her past.

    Summary

    Jamie, whose hard eyes look so wrong on her soft features, whose door Dani walked through not ten minutes ago, is holding her as if she herself is a work of art, like she is far more delicate and precious than the marble the sculptor must surely cherish; as if anything more than the most gentle touch will crush her like the petals of the orchid on the window sill.

    (Or, the one where Jamie’s a sculptor and Dani is her muse.)
