But Phoebe harbors ambitions that stretch far beyond societal expectations. When Phoebe stumbles upon a hidden letter that uncovers a long-kept family secret, she becomes determined to forge her own destiny. Fuelled by a thirst for knowledge and adventure, she embarks on a journey to London, where she encounters a captivating world of literature, politics, and intellectual discourse. But in this new realm, Phoebe also discovers the dangerous allure of power and manipulation. As Phoebe navigates through the intricacies of London society, she must confront the choices she makes and the consequences they entail.
