Linda Martin understands what is to be lonely: her parents died when she was young, and she was raised in an orphanage.
When she is hired as a governess to the orphaned young Philippe, Comte de Valmy, Linda finds a kindred spirit in the lonely little boy.
But Philippe is the heir to a vast estate in Savoy, and his dangerously handsome uncle may be willing to kill to ensure that Philippe never inherits it. Wrapped up in my own loneliness and danger I hadn't even seen that his need was the same as my own. Nine Coaches Waiting is the fourth novel of gothic suspense by the beloved author Mary Stewart, a classic of mid-century writing that has delighted generations of readers.
