False Pretences

By Rosemary Morris

Historical fiction | Paperback, eBook


“Five-year-old Annabelle, who does not know who her parents are, arrives at boarding school fluent in French and English. Separated from her nurse, with few memories of her past, a shadow blights Annabelle’s life. When high-spirited, eighteen-year old Annabelle, who is financially dependent on her unknown guardian, receives an order to marry a French baron more than twice her age, she refuses. Her life in danger, Annabelle is saved by a gentleman, who promises to help her discover her identity. Yet, from then on, nothing is as it seems. To protect her champion, broken-hearted, she is forced to run away for the second time. Annabelle must find out who to trust. Her attempts to unravel the mystery of her birth, lead to further danger, despair, unbearable anguish and even more false pretences, until the only person, who has ever wanted to cherish her, reveals the startling truth.”

Rosemary Morris enjoys writing historical fiction, which she goes to great lengths to research. Each of her novels have themes that modern day readers can identify with. In False Pretences a young woman is desperate to find out about her family. The theme of Monday's Child (heroines born on different days of the week Book One) is the effect of post traumatic stress on the hero, an army officer, and the result of the heroine's father and brothers who died due to the Napoleonic wars. Rosemary thinks she is fortunate to have achieved her dream of becoming a published author.
