Now Daniel and Callum were returning home, but tragedy has struck the ship they were sailing in had sunk. Daniel had drowned, so Sophia was now free. In the years of her betrothed's absence Sophia's Father had died, and the family finances were quite dire. Debts had been mounting, traders were pressing for payment they had been willing to wait while they knew of Sophia's promised marriage they felt assured of eventual payment, as Daniel and Callum's older brother was William Earl of Flamborough. But now all that is no more and the bills can be left no longer, Sophia has decided that the only option is for her to find paid work.
Callum Chatterton knew he must do something for Sophia, he had tried to persuade his brother Daniel to provide for her in his will, but he had not and Callum felt it was his responsibility to make sure she was cared for, as it was now six months since the Bengal Queen had sunk and Daniel had died, Callum decided that the only course of action open to him was to marry Sophia himself, he could offer financial help but he knew she was too proud to accept that.
This was a very enjoyable book to read, the story takes the reader on a journey showing how two strangers learn to come to terms with the loss of a brother and fiancé, but are now married to each other.Read more ›
Sophia Langley and Daniel Chatterton are betrothed before he leaves for India with his twin brother Callum. Ten years later, Daniel has drowned in a shipwreck, while Sophia and her mother are left on the edge of poverty. Callum, feeling a responsibility for his brother's betrothed, proposes marriage. He, knowing his brother had fallen out of love with Sophia during their long separation, doesn't realise that she also fell out of love with his brother. Various misunderstandings occur before we finally reach the denouement we all know is coming. Still, the journey there is quite enjoyable if occasionally historically bumpy for me.
