Having recently travelled some of the areas this book mentions and with an avid interest in the Peninsula war, I thought it would be interesting to read a book set mostly in the Autumn/Winter of 1812 during the retreat to Portugal. To be honest I was expecting some piece of holiday fluff as per the norm with regency romances, as I love a happy ending but never take them seriously!!

This book blew my preconception out of the water as it was gritty and made sure the reader understood war was not pretty and that as I had suspected there were quite a few injustices and depravities committed by both sides as they trotted around Spain and Portugal.

Amongst all this, the budding romance between the main characters was really nicely written and I felt for each of the main cast in different ways - Elinore was sweet but strong inside; calm and shy Jesse was never arrogant or top lofty; Dan a great right hand man; Major Bones the epitome of evil; and the two army scamps Wilkie and Harper were loyal without question. The other characters such as Sheffield and the mad Count meant the book was rich and varied.

The book is not generally fast paced but then I wouldn't expect a 200 mile journey mostly on foot and full of hardship to be particularly easy and this comes across very well. It has some emotional pieces that aren't just your usual 'awww sweet' moments, meaning the book was not a typical romance and reaps the rewards of such a distinction.

I will be reading more this author.

delightful story, full of tribulations and the horrors of war...the characters are good, the plot excellent...the pacing is off, it ends too abruptly and conveniently, but otherwise it is a good read, with engaging and sympathetic hero and heroine...recommended!

Since Carla Kelly is one of my favorite authors of all times, I pre-ordered this book and read it twice within a couple of days. Her Hero/Heroine characters are interesting, believable and their lives are situated during difficult times as are many of her characters.

Captain Jesse Randall, a shy, Scottish surgeon in King George's army during the Napoleonic Wars has known little Nell since she was ten years old. Now, she is a young lady who is 18 years old and her ne'er do well father has gambled away funds he didn't have to the sadistic, nasty Major Bones. Of course Major Bones decides he wants to be paid by having Nell - not as a wife but as his bed mate.

Nell has worked with the medical staff of Marching Hospital Number Eight since the age of ten, sweeping the floors and doing whatever she could to try and "pay back" the men who were always there to help her ragtag family. Needless to say, she is loved and protected by those same men, including Captain Randall who has known for two years that he loves her but is too reserved to acknowledge his love to anyone.

The men of Number Eight are trying to get the funds to pay Major Bones to no avail. Desperate to keep Nell from the devil, one of the members of the medical team suggests to Captain Randall that perhaps he could marry Nell to keep her from Major Bones. Captain Randall saves the day but Major Bones sets his heart on revenge.

The army is in the process of retreating from Spain to Lisbon, Portugal. But, Major Bones is in charge of the retreat order and of course the Marching Hospital Number Eight gets left behind and must find their own way to Lisbon with the French Army at their back. Thus the name of the book - The Wedding Journey.
