Another good Balogh story of distressing economic events and how it effects the lovers in the story. Good details are her hallmark. Read, then pass it on, imnsho! :)
interesting historical setting and character histories
Set in Wales in the 1800's a good blend of history and love.
The difference in their staus flames the fires of passion....
When they were children, Geraint Penderyn and Marged Evans were close friends. But years have passed since then. Geraint is now the Earl of Wyvern and Marged hates him more than any other man on earth. She blames him for her husband's death, and both she and all the other inhabitants of the Welsh village where she lives blame him for oppressing his people. Geraint has to devise some scheme to convince his people that really he is on their side. A masked savior, a man dressed as a woman named Rebecca, rides out at night to lead his people in rebellion against the toll gates that are destroying them all. He is a daring and commanding figure, and Marged is soon deeply involved with him, though she has never seen his face. Beneath the disguise he is, of course, her friend-turned-foe, Geraint.
An earlier Balogh book but a great read none the less. The hero and heroine are likable and the love story is real and endearing.
