Read full description of the books:
The engagement of Julia to the self satisfied Richard Beaumont is the event of the year at the Hampshire estate of Julia's parents in 1814. But foe Eliza Stanhope, Julia's cousin and childhood companion, it is a matter for scorn not congratulations. Surely one should marry for love and not for social advantage?
However, Richard's presence brings the unexpected and exciting consequence of meeting his younger brother, Francis. Francis is newly returned from the Peninsular war, accompanied by a delightful fellow officer and friend, Pelham Howell. In the first of these new acquaintances Eliza meets a spirit as fierce as her own, in the second a charm and devotion she never thought to receive. It is loyalty the two men feel for each other and must resolve the ensuing triangle.
And so the transformation of a willful child into a loving woman takes place. But the complete world that Eliza creates around her marriage is shattered by the news of Napoleon's escape from Elba and the call to arms that will take her to her moment of truth on the field of Waterloo.
