The Stars Above Northumberland by Anita Stansfield, Blog Tour
Her husband is dead. But far from grieving, young widow Lady Meriwether Sturgess feels nothing but relief and release. After enduring years of physical and emotional abuse at the hands of her cruel husband, Meri is drawn to the comfort of the one place sure to offer healing both for her and her children: Rosewell Manor. The home of her beloved Aunt Annibel is the site of her happiest childhood memories, and it promises the new beginning for which she longs. Just as she settles into life at the manor, Meri is granted a delightful surprise. Elliott Rosewell has come to stay, as he often has since childhood. Meri and Elliott had once been close friends, and each concealed long-harbored feelings for one another. Their warm relationship is quickly rekindled, and despite the sorrows and secrets they each conceal, they discover that their friendship has blossomed into love. But a relationship that seems to promise happily ever after quickly begins to unravel as devastating truths from both Meri’s and Elliott’s past surface, and their chance at happiness together may be lost forever. . . .
I have been reading Stansfield books for years and it was nice to see her write a book set in my favorite period; regency. Meri is the main character who is trying to put the pieces of her life back on the right track after the death of an abusive spouse. She returns to her Aunt's home and her sanctuary, Roswell Manor. Her long time childhood friend Elliot happens to come and stay as well and the story goes from there. There is a lot going on that you have to keep straight and of course you have to read the book for yourself to find out how it ends!
