From Publishers Weekly
Again demonstrating her mastery of the romance genre, the prolific Holt ( The Captive ) depicts another heroine in distress. Davina Glentyre's cozy world rapidly distintegrates when her father, a wealthy, straight-laced Edinburgh banker, marries her new governess, the previous instructor having been accused of stealing a valuable bracelet. When Glentyre dies under suspicious circumstances, Davina is arrested for murder. The jury of Scots brings in a verdict of "not proven," leaving Davina's reputation severely damaged. Though she changes her name, Davina lives in constant fear of recognition, and decides to rejoin her dismissed governess, whose innocence she never doubted. Traveling to South Africa to reopen a school in the town of Kimberley, the two women make the journey with diamond merchant Roger Lestrange and his bride. When the latter falls ill, more than Davina's reputation is in jeopardy. Although Holt's heroine possesses the usual weakness, namely a naivete that borders on a learning disability, she is appealing, and the story, mixing danger and sentiment, should please Holt's many fans.
