York, in the last decade of the 19th century is the setting for this powerful novel. Based on a true story, it tells of three lives woven together by love, desire, and conflicting loyalties.
Proud and determined, Louisa Elliott battles to overcome the stigmas of the past: a past shared by her cousin Edward. Tied by more than simple family affection, neither of them is prepared for the advent of Robert Duncannon, an Irish officer with the Royal Dragoons.
He is everything loyal, steadfast Edward can never be, but Robert has secrets of his own; and, as Louisa fall passionately in love, it seems family history is set on repeating itself.
While Edward stands by, Louisa finds she must choose between safety and respectability in York, and the uncertainty of life in Dublin with a man she may never marry.
In both cities, military pageantry marches side by side with poverty and wealth, while Louisa – isolated and vulnerable – is inwardly torn by opposing forces. Having followed her heart, how will she deal with the consequences?
A great, rich novel, peopled with characters you come to know intimately and care about deeply, Louisa Elliott will linger with you long after the final page has been turned.
