The Mrs MacKinnons by Jayne Davis

FREE WITH KINDLE UNLIMITED

England, 1799
Major Matthew Southam returns from India, hoping to put the trauma of war behind him and forget his past. Instead, he finds a derelict estate and a family who wish he'd died abroad.
Charlotte MacKinnon married without love to avoid her father’s unpleasant choice of husband. Now a widow with a young son, she lives in a small Cotswold village with only the money she earns by her writing.
Matthew is haunted by his past, and Charlotte is fearful of her father’s renewed meddling in her future. After a disastrous first meeting, can they help each other find happiness at last?

Jayne Davis’s strong sense of character, both main and secondary, and her deep familiarity with the ways of England in the days of Napoleon … are evident throughout. “The Mrs MacKinnons” is a satisfying romance with a much wider perspective than your average period piece: a leisurely historical love story for grown-ups with eyes wide open.
