When they first meet in England, Joana and Robert fall in love. But they are very young, and the differences in their social stations soon force them apart. When they meet again eleven years later in Portugal during the Peninsular Wars, they are both spies, apparently on opposite sides. In fact Joana is a double agent--but Robert's very life depends upon her successfully deceiving him even as passion flares between them.
High intrigue, daring exploits, a passionate love affair, what more could
you want in a romance? Balogh gives us a humdinger of a tale set during the
Napoleonic Wars. When Jeanne Morisette meets Robert Blake, they are
teenagers and life is full of promise. Not so eleven years later, when they
meet again--as spies! Great fun. Highly recommended.
Balogh's new epic love story is a winner...absorbing reading right up until
Beyond the Sunrise is an utterly absorbing, powerful tale of a love that
was once doomed and yet blooms again amidst the intrigue and ordeal of war.
With infinite care and deft plotting Ms. Balogh spins an intricate tale with
the skill of a master weaver. She draws you into the era by evoking the aura
of the war and the passionate emotions of her characters. If you have never
read another book by Mary Balogh then Beyond the Sunrise will be your
introduction to a writer of remarkable talents.
