Tuesday's Child

By Rosemary Morris

Historical fiction, Romance | eBook


In this novel of prejudice and pride, Harriet Stanton followed the drum until her husband and father, army officers during the Napoleonic war, died. Destitute, she returns to England, with her young son. Desperate for an heir, her father-in-law welcomes Harriet, and Arthur, whose every wish he grants. At first, Harriet is grateful to the earl, her father-in-law, but soon they are locked in a silent battle to control Arthur, who has tantrums when denied anything. The earl tells Arthur he may not swim in the lake, but his grandson defies him. About to drown, he is rescued by charismatic Dominic, Reverend Markham, the Earl and Countess Faucon’s son. At the lakeside, Dominic meets Harriet. She is so dainty that his immediate impression is of a fairy. Despite her appearance, he is mistaken. Harriet is not a pampered lady. During brutal campaigns, she milked goats and cooked over camp fires.
