Had She Been Foolish to Hope for More than Friendship?
When Captain Edward Tremaine returned from the Peninsular War, the first sight to greet his weary eyes was the natural beauty of Miss Jane Hampton tending to her English country garden.
Drawn to her sympathetic company and bound by mutual family concerns, Edward and Jane formed a deep attachment for one another. Unconsciously, Jane nurtured hopes for a future with Edward, though he had never encouraged her to do so.
Her confidence was badly shaken when Edward's sudden departure to London, and his subsequent return with the glamorous Lady Julietta Blackwood, almost caused her to abandon her most cherished dreams.
Captain Edward Tremaine and Miss Jane Hampton,
Charles Grandville, Earl of Sedgworth and Miss Fanny Hampton.
