Love's Libertyby Lesley-Anne McLeod
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Julia Clemence had loved Simon Mancroft-Martley her entire life, but when she was sixteen and he twenty-one, he had bought a commission and gone to war. He had been gone nearly five years, and on his return an unexpected encounter in the village church convinces Julia that he loves her as she does him. But Simon has lost an arm in battle, and is determined not to burden her with a crippled husband. Her parents concur with his decision, and she is forbidden to consider him eligible. Julia, by their actions and his, is denied the freedom to accept or decline an offer of love and marriage. Her stratagems to achieve liberty fail, and she loses hope. But in the parish church that has been her solace, Simon admits the truth of her many arguments, and gives her the freedom to choose her future--with him or without him.

Meet the Author
Lesley-Anne McLeod has loved all things British--from history and geography to art and literature--for longer than she can remember. After years of bookselling and non-fiction writing it was natural that when she turned to writing fiction thirty years ago, she should write historical romances set in England.
Lesley-Anne has written ten full-length romances, a volume of short stories, and several pieces of short fiction. These are all set in the extended Regency era (1800-1825), and are written in the 'traditional' Regency style, reminiscent of the work of Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen. Historical accuracy plays an important part in her writing, and research is an absorbing and abiding interest to her.
When she is not writing and researching, Lesley-Anne is gardening, sewing, or reading, all in the company of her two cats.
