If Wishes Were Waltzes
A PRIDE AND PREJUDICE sequel Book 1 of The Fitzwilliam Family Betrayals
Since her father died, plain and timid Anne de Bourgh has given in to her mother’s hateful oppression and entered the safe world of spinsterhood. Then the dashing Hussar, Major Laurence, rides into her life, and she begins to blossom into the woman she secretly wants to be.
Lady Catherine, however, is desperate to retain control of Anne and Rosings Park. As the friendship with Laurence deepens toward love, Anne discovers just how dangerously far her mother will go to keep her power.
It was always just easier for shy Anne to just let her mother have her way and rule the house. But now, if Anne can't stand up to her mother's tyranny, her freedom, her right to love, and even her very existence are threatened.
