THE TEMPORARY BETROTHAL
THE TEMPORARY BETROTHAL (4) by Lily George: To avoid becoming just another girl on the marriage mart, Sophie Handley moves to Bath to become a seamstress. It brings her into contact with her brother-in-law’s best friend, Lt. Charlie Cantrill. Charlie, who lost a hand in battle, is dedicated to working with the veterans of Bath, but his mother wants him married and back home in Brightgate. To help Charlie, they pretend to court — until their feelings become real. Second in the Brides of Waterloo series, George’s heartwarming tale realistically portrays a hero learning lessons about life and love, and his handicap engenders sympathy, not pity.
