Love And Joy is a novella set in Restoration England. Joy Ashley lost her ancestral home when Cromwell came to power, forcing her to take a position as a maid. When King Charles regains the throne, she mistakenly believes that Ashley Hall will be restored to her. When her dream is shattered, she becomes the governess of Lord Noel Huntingdon's precocious daughter. The little tyrant rules the roost, and that's when the fun and games begin. Not only does Joy transform Amanda from a petulant child to a happy, loving hoyden, she teaches her new master a few things about "Love and Joy."
This heartwarming story sweeps you back to 17th Century England. It moves from the magnificent estate of Lord Huntingdon, who is a personal friend of the king, to the glittering Whitehall Court of King Charles and his new bride, Queen Catherine.
The playhouses in the City of London have been reopened and the people who had suffered repression are more than ready to indulge themselves in fun-loving, risque entertainments, and close their eyes to the loose morals of the Royal Court.
This is a tale of miracles, and the tender love story will touch your heart.
