Marrying the Major
By JoAnne Maitland

     Emma Fitzwilliam has always prided herself on living her life as a free spirit. All the eligible gentlemen available only wanted to put an end to her carefree existence. She is happy to learn that Hugo Stratton, a childhood friend, is home from war. Excited at finding someone who could match her zest for life, she rushes to his side, but what she discovers as he turns towards her fills her heart with sadness.

     Hugo Stratton has returned a changed man, the scars that cover his body no match for the ones on his soul. Seeing the pity in Emma Fitzwilliam’s eyes convinces him that he’s no longer the man he once was. Will he be able to pick up the pieces of his shattered existence and start living for the future once again?

    JoAnne Maitland’s Marrying the Major is the most emotionally satisfying reading experience I have ever encountered. The depth and anguish suffered by these unforgettable characters made a lasting impact on my consciousness and has a permanent place in my heart. Very highly recommend.
