One Perfect Afternoonby Jane Dawkins, Barry Fitzgerald
She has beauty, poise and intelligence, a diamond of the first water, a prize of great value, but she is not happy. Lady Davina Woodburn feels totally uprooted. A country girl at heart, she is a better judge of horse-flesh than any man, enjoys the wild freedom of her rural life, and is not afraid to attend the births of the farm animals, or patch up a wound in either man or beast. Nineteen-year-old Davina feels quite out of place in London. She wishes to be back where she feels she belongs, certainly not on the London marriage mart. Had her aunt not insisted upon it to her father, she would still be back home... then she would never have met and lost the man of her dreams.
In One Perfect Afternoon, Jane Dawkins (author of the acclaimed Pride and Prejudice continuations, Letters from Pemberley, and More Letters from Pemberley) tells another sparkling tale of another spirited young woman. Like Elizabeth Bennet, Lady Davina Woodburn sometimes ruffles the feathers of those around her, and her independent mind is often at odds with society in the English Regency period in which she lives.
"One Perfect Afternoon is a wonderfully told story and will touch your heart...Jane [Dawkins] has again brought style and grace into the telling, along with vivid scenery and lush costuming...one Regency romance you won't want to miss."
