A Persevering Lady
A Regency Novel
At only seventeen and twelve summers respectively, Edward and Annalise fall in love before they even know what that word means. The time spent running through the Witherspoon Manor together, learning new things and playing happily, bring the two people who could not be more farther apart, closer than they could ever imagine.
Unfortunately, their friendship is put to an end when Annalise's father, Duke of Suffolk, learns of their relationship. Annoyed that his daughter would stoop so low, as to roll with a common Blacksmith's son, he forbids their relationship and banishes Edward and his Father away from Suffolk. They are both devastated by this, but Edward manages to sneak a letter to Annalise just before he and his father embark on a journey that would change their lives forever. Annalise receives this letter, proclaiming Edward's love for her and vows to wait for his promised return.

When they meet, spark flies and love soars.
