Amycus Derby has always been alone. He’s never had any friends, and he was brought up in Newgate orphanage. He’s only ever been disappointed by people before. And he’s learnt to stop trusting people – they only let you down, after all.
What he longs for is someone who can help him find himself again, and teach him to love. But when he meets Janet Woods, everything starts to change. Because she’s different. But there’s nothing that could come from this… is there?
