    Love Story at the Time of Waterloos

    This novel is set in Brussels when Napoleon has escaped his exile on Elba and is on his way to Belgium with an army, where the Duke of Wellington is gathering his men in preparation for a battle. Helen Whitely is devastated when the man she loves, Viscount Langley, a Peninsular War veteran doesn’t propose due to his father’s gambling away the family money. Her new suitor is the gentle Captain Dalrymple and although she encourages him, she still longs for Langley. Helen throws open the house she has inherited from a kindly benefactor for injured soldiers, in a well-researched novel which moves between the drawing room and the chaos of battle, at a time when gently born ladies were forced to become hardened nurses to horribly injured and dying men. Ms Morris has a unique feel for the times, with authentic manners, customs and the famous Ball thrown by the Duchess of Richmond that took place on the eve of Waterloo.
