England, 1813
In a time when rich young men have their choice of sensible, intelligent, and handsome young women, one should feel satisfied just to be married.
Amelia Dyer finds herself as the mistress of a country manor house.  Recently espoused, she is learning to navigate the early days of what it means to be a devoted wife.  Unexpectedly, a long lost relation of her husband comes to stay at the manor after leaving the Militia.  This dark and lonely man touches  Amelia's soul and leaves her questioning everything she holds dear.

ooh you must be a strong Jane Austen fan: Pride and prejudice, sense and sensibility, and now your version, dignity and depravity.

OMG I already love this book!! I mean, if you begin by quoting Jane Austen, it can only be good.

It's been a while since I've read regency or histories of any ilk. What a lovely story to slip into!

I love the rapport between the two. Sass with old British style.

From the first couple of chapters, I already love how polished your prose is, and the way you've set up your first couple of characters. 😊 So far, everything seems perfect for them, but I know soon enough that it won't be...

This is such a great start, J! It's so rich with detail. You've nicely captured the tone and feeling of this writing style.
