Marianne Phillips lost so much in the war ? her brother, father, mother. the family plantation, and with it her way of life. Even with so much ripped from her, her pride and self-respect remain firmly in tact. When a man who claims to have admired her from afar proposed marriage, can Marianne trust his intentions, or will her pride get in the way?
Robert Hannigan was not supposed to propose to her today, not the third time she’d seen him, the first time her sister had allowed him to escort her anywhere. -- Treasured, Wild Rose Press, American Rose
