Parthena's Promise by Valerie Holmes
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
In 1815 Captain Jerome Fender has returned from fighting on the Continent to England, determined not to settle for the society marriage his mother wishes to arrange.
In a Yorkshire market town, desperate, recently orphaned Miss Parthena Munro crosses his path. The next day he discovers that she has stolen some of his money. Determined to find her and discover her story he sets off in pursuit.
Can justice be serviced and true love succeed in these times.
An enjoyable tale,with some interesting characters that doesn't take overly long to get to the conclusion. Though I probably would have liked another chapter or two.
A NetGalley Book.
