About “Love and Loss at Whitmore Manor”
For nearly three years, British Officer Tristan Whitmore fought bravely for King and Crown in America. But his loyalty came at a price, and after slowly recovering from battlefield injuries, it is finally time to return to his beloved England and his wife, Muriel. But there is to be no tender reunion at Whitmore Manor instead, Tristan is stunned to learn of his wife’s deceit in his absence and her unexpected death. And to add to the shocking blow, this devastating news is delivered by the last woman Tristan ever hoped to see again.
Olivia Halstead lost everything after the death of her father but found refuge with her cousin Muriel while Muriel’s husband was at war. Now, with the loss of her cousin, Olivia feels she has trespassed too long on the hospitality of the family. But before she can depart, Muriel’s husband returns, and Olivia’s own thorny history with the man comes rushing in: years ago, theirs was a tender courtship—followed too soon by a bitter parting of ways. Now two people divided by past betrayal find an unforeseen chance for reconciliation. But when Tristan and Olivia find themselves on opposite sides of a revolution, will their clashing allegiances tear them apart forever?
About the Author
Anita Stansfield has been a queen of romantic fiction for more than a decade. Her work has shattered the stereotypes of romance novels with her trademark ability to combine great storytelling with intense psychological depth as she focuses on the emotional struggles of the human experience. Her novels cover a huge spectrum, from the eighteenth century to the present, from heart warming to heart stopping. Hundreds of thousands of readers agree: Anita Stansfield’s characters and the lives they lead are not easy to forget. Anita also writes mainstream historical fiction (Horstberg Saga) under the name Elizabeth D. Michaels. The first book in that series is called Behind the Mask. You can see her Elizabeth D. Michaels books on Amazon.
I have read dozens of Anita Stansfield novels over the years. One of my most favorite stories is the book called “Tower of Brierley.” (You can snag that book on the kindle for only $0.99 today.) I was excited to sink my teeth into another good read by this author. As the novel description describes above, this is a love story between two past sweet hearts, Tristan and Olivia. There past was filled with love and promise, yet the tables turned and they were driven apart by another.
This is a regency novel that tells the tale of first love, betrayal and rekindled love. I had no problem getting into the heart and mind of these characters due to Anita’s excellent writing style. Another great read for you especially if you love the regency era. Clean romance read.
