Set at the turn of the century, November of the Heart tells of Lorna Barnett, from a wealthy St. Paul family, and Jens Harken, the ambitious dreamer who works in the kitchen of her family's summer estate. Trapped in a rigid social caste system, yet drawn irresistibly together, Lorna and Jens begin a clandestine affair as fresh and innocent as the summer itself. But the repercussions of that passionate idyll soon separate them against their wills, forcing them through buried scandal and shame to endure a loneliness where it is always the "November of the heart." Does love have the power to reunite them - when the world tears them apart?
