About the Book
After a medical discharge from his duties in the Napoleonic War, Thomas Quincy Fitzbatten has returned home. Disoriented, burdened by guilt for his wealth, and disillusioned with life's injustices, Thomas longs for a chance to make a difference in the world. But he keeps himself a mystery to those around him, and another motive for his charity gnaws at the back of his mind: to seek redemption from the traumatic demons of war.
Then everything changes at the arrival of Ruth Dawson, the niece of Thomas's butler, a stunning woman with a secret of her own. Thomas graciously offers to assist Ruth in her predicament, but a surprise instinct prompts Thomas to handle the case a little more personally—through marriage.
As their love blossoms, it appears that all will be well—until Thomas receives a mysterious letter from an old friend in trouble, compelling him to the rescue. But what will Thomas do when nothing is as it seems? And why can't Ruth shake the feeling that her destiny is intertwined with Thomas's in a way they could never have imagined?
About the Author
Anita Stansfield has more than fifty published books and is the recipient of many awards, including two lifetime achievement awards. Her books go far beyond bein an enjoyable, memorable story. Anita resonates particularly well with a broad range of devoted readers because of her sensitive and insightful examination of contemporary issues that are faced by many of those readers, even when her venue is a historical romance, readers come away from her compelling stories equipped with new ideas about how to enrich their own lives, regardless of their circumstances.
Anita was born and raised in Provo, Utah. She is the mother of five and has a growing number of grandchildren. She also writes for the general trade market under the name Elizabeth D. Michaels.
I have always loved Anita Stansfield’s stories and The Heir of Brownlie Manor is no different. Anita has written a delightfully fun and sweet romantic regency novel that readers will love. Anita brings her characters to life as they deal with overcoming personal trials. I loved seeing the development in the unlikely relationship of friendship and eventually love between Thomas and Ruth throughout the novel. I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoy Anita’s previous novels as well as those that enjoy regency romance.
