When Jonathan Gilmore, a pessimistic and cynical young boy from a powerful English family, meets Helene Hoffman, a fair-haired immigrant girl newly arrived in England, there's no way either of them can know the impact they will one day have on each other's lives. Thirteen years later, at a society event, Jonathan comes to the uncomfortable realization that he is considered to be almost unspeakably handsome but cold and unapproachable. Helene, meanwhile, finds herself the object of an obsession that is based solely on her beauty without any regard for the person she truly is. This unlikely pair have spent years in the periphery of each other's lives, never recognizing a hidden and uncommon similarity between them, but with scandalous secrets threatening to resurface and passions ready to boil over, that focus is about to shift. While this story takes place in the nineteenth century, the themes Love and Misunderstanding examines are truly timeless.
