A Year and A Day by OpalSpirit for Puppens101
15 Oct 2019
Born into privilege, she grew to see the world torn to shreds by war. Born into nobility, she was expected to marry whomever her parents deemed worthy. But she was different. She wanted the choice to be hers, to have her fate within her own hands. Reluctantly, her parents agree and give her a year and a day to make her choice. But of course, he must be of noble stock in order to meet their approval fully.
Her willingness to follow the rules gets thrown to the wind the moment she sees him. A dashing cavalry officer. A Captain no less. Her neat, structured world is shattered. Her heart and mind no longer agree and afford her no peace.
Usually so perceptive of those around her, she fails to notice how, she too, has caught his eye. Captain James Nicholls. In a small town square, he first sees her and is stricken to the core.
Will they find it within themselves to speak what their hearts demand of them? And if so, will their love stand the tests of family expectations and a world at war?
