The author of five superbly entertaining Regency novels, Patricia Veryan has been proclaimed "a worthy successor to Georgette Heyer at her very best" (The Chattanooga Times). Now, in her sixth novel, Feather Castles, Patricia Veryan gives us another sparkling Regency full of drama and romance as she unfolds the spellbinding adventures and apparently star-crossed love of the soon-to-be-married Miss Rachel Strand and a man whose name she does not even know.
It is dusk on the ruined battlefields of Waterloo. In a carriage slowly making its way across the desolation is Rachel Strand, fiancée to the rich and powerful Claude Sanguinet, who is accompanying her friend and teacher Sister Maria Evangeline in a desperate search for one man among the thousands who lie wounded. Before they can find that man, they come across a valiant young solider who, though badly wounded, saves them from plunderers–a man who cannot remember his name, or even his nationality.
So begins a riveting tale that takes us to both sides of the English Channel, from elegant drawing rooms and a magnificent sinister country estate to riotous taverns and hostelries…
