by Kaye Dion
One chilly autumn morning in 1893, Victoria Ashley and Charles Reginald Winthrop III meet on a cobblestone street in Montpelier, Vermont. Reginald is fifteen years older than Victoria and dashing, debonair, and worldly. The young and beautiful Victoria is charmed by this tall, dashing stranger. A smoldering romance evolves, and Reginald proposes marriage. Victoria makes all the arrangements, but several weeks before the wedding date, Reginald meets a lady of culture in New York and calls off the wedding. Victoria eventually recovers from this devastating news and succeeds in a lucrative writing career. In her later years, as her royalties start to dwindle, Victoria is forced to sell her lovely country home. After a final trip to her attic, she finally gets to wear the beautiful wedding dress that Reginald had made for her out of imported Chantilly Lace.
