A Proper Companion
Title: A PROPER COMPANION
Author: Louise M. Gouge
Publisher: Love Inspired Historical
Genre: Inspirational/historical romance
Anna Newfield has just lost her father. She’s at the funeral when she learns that her brother is presumed dead in the colonies, and that she has to move out of the parsonage that very day. And not only that, but the temporary lodging she obtains is no longer available.
Major Edmond Grenville happens to be there when Anna loses everything, and he’s quick to offer her a job as a companion to his mother. But the Dowager Lady Greystone is controlling and unwelcoming.
As Edmond and Anna get to know each other amid the glittering ballrooms of London, Anna falls in love, but she knows Edmond could never love her back. However, Anna’s courage is compelling, but Edmond knows he will go against his family’s rigid command if he falls in love. What will it take for Anna and Edmond to find true and lasting love?
A PROPER COMPANION is Ms. Gouge’s most recent historical romance and it’s a winner. Set during the Revolutionary War time period, Edmond has been fighting in the colonies until an injury sent him back to Britain. As the story begins, Anna is at her father’s funeral and has lost everything before the end of the first chapter.
A PROPER COMPANION is a story of faith and courage in hard times. Anna is gentle and sweet the whole story through, even when faced with her losses and her subsequent difficult employment, and Edmond too is a true hero. Readers will be delighted with this newest historical by award winning author Louise Gouge. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book. $5.75. 285 pages.
