Overview

A historical novel set in England in 1585.

Bess Stoughton, waiting woman to the well-connected Lady Allingbourne, has discovered that her father is arranging for her to marry an elderly neighbour. Normally obedient Bess rebels and wrests from her father a year’s grace to find a husband more to her liking.

Edmund Wyard, a taciturn and scarred veteran of England’s campaign in Ireland, is attempting to ignore the pressure from his family to find a suitable wife as he prepares to join the Earl of Leicester’s army in the Netherlands.

Although Bess and Edmund are drawn to each other, they are aware that they can have nothing more than friendship. Bess knows that Edmund’s wealth and family connections place him beyond her reach. And Edmund, with his well-honed sense of duty, has never considered that he could follow his own wishes.

With England on the brink of war and fear of Catholic plots extending even into Lady Allingbourne’s household, time is running out for both of them.

I’m not one to usually read historical fiction, but I have to say I lost track of time and found myself staying up to read it. Loved the different characters and how the writing elegantly portrayed their unique personalities. Would definitely recommend this book.

Stunning historical romance set in Elizabethan England! The romance is a simple set-up - Bess has to find a husband of her own choosing or be forced to wed the man her father has chosen; Edmund is also being pushed to get married, but he's hampered by his family's expectations. Even knowing that these two will find their HEA by the end of the book doesn't detract from the exquisite path they take to get there. This story is breathtaking in its beauty, vividly describing the historical setting and packing in just enough political intrigue to make you feel like you're right there experiencing everything along with the characters. This is the best kind of literary time-travel, and it left me with such a book hangover when I was done. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
