Belinda: I just read the Persuasion by Brenda Joyce and it was an excellent read.
This is the second book of the Spymaster Men which centers around the French
Revolution. The characters are Simon, Grenville, the Earl of St. Just and Amelia Greystone who were neighbors.
Ten years earlier, Amelia was deeply in love with Simon when she was sixteen years old
And suddenly Simon ended his courtship and left his family home in Cornwall and never said goodbye to Amelia. She found out later that Simon married someone else to appease his family estates.
When Amelia hears the news about the Countess of Grenville has died during childbirth, she is stunned. When Amelia attends the funeral of her neighbor, she can't help being so sad for the children who are awaiting their father to come home to them.
When Amelia finally sees Simon, she is overwhelmed with how bad he looks and sees the bleak despair reflected in his eyes.
Simon must keep his secrets, in order to keep his sons safe. He is a British spy who is playing both sides in a time of war. And when he meets Amelia, he finds that his feelings for her has not changed and are even stronger.
Can two people forget the past and start again? Will the war keep them apart?
You will have to read to find out if true love will prevail.
