Benita Brown - I'll Be Seeing You Orphaned Linda Bellwood has grown up looking wistfully through the windows of Fernwood Hall onto the lives of the glamorous Hyltons, knowing theirs is a world she can never be part of. But when she is hired as companion to the old Mrs Hylton, she becomes inextricably linked with the house and its inhabitants.  The dashing eldest son Rupert keeps to himself, but she soon finds herself drawn in as confidante to the beautiful, spoilt daughter Cordelia as her dramas are played out. It’s Florian, the youngest son, whom she feels the most connection to, however, and when their friendship blossoms into something more, she feels as if her dreams really have come true.  But Linda begins to realize that the life she thought she always wanted is not as it seems, and it will take a chance encounter with a young artist to open her eyes to the meaning of true happiness…
