Über das eBook

In The Historical Romance series, a set of stand-alone novels, Vivian Stuart builds her compelling narratives around the dramatic lives of sea captains, nurses, surgeons, and members of the aristocracy.
Stuart takes us back to the societies of the 20th century, drawing on her own experience of places across Australia, India, East Asia, and the Middle East. 
Kathy Gregson was still a tomboy after a year at her finishing school in Paris. When she came out to India to join her family in the province where her father was Governor, she found it very difficult to accept the rigid protocol which was a part of life at the hill station.
The social errors she committed, such as forgetting names and faces, were a great worry to her. Why couldn't she be more like her sister Harriet, seven years her senior, who always did and said the right thing? But when Kathy met tall, fair-haired Desmond Conroy at a polo game, she knew that she would have no trouble in remembering his name, or his face... and she also realised that Harriet knew Desmond much better than she admitted...

Über den Autor

Vivian Stuart was a British writer and during her writing career she had more than 70 books published in Australia, USA and the UK.
Born in Berkshire in England, she spent most of her youth in Burma and India, and later lived in Hungary and Australia. During WWII, she served in the Women's Unit attached to the Indian Army; she is the holder of the Burma Star.
At the age of thirty-five she began to write romantic fiction but soon devoted her attention to military and historical novels.
From the warp and woof of what we call history, she has told the story of ordinary people living under the shadow of an appalling disaster, so that other ordinary people may read it with understanding, interest, and enjoyment and, perhaps, a few tears.
