The offspring of a wealthy aristocratic family, Edmund Bellasis, who was in love with Sophia Trenchard, had asked for their invitation.

The Secrets She Keeps, 2020
On her blog, Megan looks like a well-to-do woman, a happy mother of two who is expecting a new baby.

Lonely and unhappy fan Megan Agatha does not know about all this, so she is terribly jealous of the “star”. Both have a lot of secrets behind them, which seriously complicate life.
