"Fans of War and Peace will relish this poignant novel of love and loss" - International bestselling and award winning historical author Nicola Cornick
Would you risk everything for love? Their race to Gretna Green is merely the beginning of a journey that leads across Europe, at a time when Europe has been ripped in two by war. Naive and innocent, Lady Ellen Pembroke falls for a dashing young army officer. Captain Paul Harding has an easy, enchanting smile. His blue eyes glow with vibrancy and warmth. She is in love. In turn, the Captain's attention is captured by the beautiful daughter of the Duke of Pembroke. Finding Ellen is like discovering treasure within the burned, bloody soil of a battle field. His sanity clings to her - something beautiful to remind him that not all the world is ugly. She becomes someone to fight for and survive for when he is inevitably called to arms for the battle of Waterloo.

Jane is qualified to the equivalent of a Masters Degree in People Management and is fascinated by the things which craft people’s personalities, so she has great fun exploring these through characters. She lives in the United Kingdom near the Regency City of Bath and has just bought her 400 year old dream home. History has always tempted her imagination and she loves researching and also exploring ruins and houses to get ideas. She equally loves a love story.
Jane has always aspired to writing a historical novel so when she was thirty she put it on her ‘to do before I am forty’ list. She completed her first novel ten years ago, never sent it anywhere then started the next. She’s not stopped writing since, and escaping into a mental world of fiction is a great painkiller to help fight off her Ankylosing Spondylitis.
