Monday's Child

By Rosemary Morris

Historical fiction, Romance | Paperback, eBook


In March 1815, Napoleon Bonaparte escaped from exile in Elba. In Brussels, 18 year-old Helen Whitley knows war between France and Britain and her allies, is inevitable. An artist, Helen is aware of the anxiety and fear underlying the balls and other festivities organised by the British. While Helen lives with her sister and brother-in-law, she waits for Major, Viscount Langley, to arrive and ask her to be his wife. She is grateful to her brother-in-law for including her in his household. Nevertheless, Helen regrets being dependent on his generosity, and looks forward to being mistress of Langley’s heart and home. Before Langley leaves England he visits his parents to tell them he intends to marry Helen. Yet, when he arrives in Brussels to join his regiment, he does not propose to Helen, and her pride does not allow her to reveal the misery caused by Langley’s rejection.
