Hen Unterdessen lernt Charles auf einem Ball allerdings die ebenso hinreißende wie verruchte Lady Barbara kennen Zum Entsetzen der ganzen Familie hält er um ihre Hand an Doch da kommt es zu der alles entscheidenden Schlac. ,

It unctions very well as a stand alone novel to the point where I didn t even realize that I was reading a book rom a series until I went to write this reviewBrussels 1815 The summer of love While the Congress of Vienna winds down English and french society congregates in brussels or endless parties society congregates in Brussels The Alcohol Experiment for endless parties and general rich peopleun times Off in France Napoleon has escaped exile and is gathering an army but no one is overly worried about this because parties The cast of characters is vast and apparently consists almost entirely of real historical Menggairahkan Perjalanan Halaqah figures who were involved in the Battle of Waterloo but our main characters are Barbara Childe and Colonel Charles Audley Barbara is a widow who having beenreed early on by her husband s death now has an amount of Spiritual Warfare for Every Christian freedom that most women of the time can only dream of and uses thatreedom to the best of her ability Barbara scandalizes the town by wearing revealing clothing painting her toenails gold swearing like a soldier and having a series of very public affairs and generally not giving a single lying uck what anyone thinks Needless to say I loved her Demonica from the get go Enter Colonel Charles Audley an aide de camp to Wellington Healls in love with Barbara and proposes to her and she s like sure this could be un The way Heyer develops Charles and Barbara s relationship is very nicely done and eual parts delightful and heartbreaking Barbara subconsciously afraid that she doesn t deserve a man as good as Charles tries to sabotage the relationship by behaving badly like she s constantly daring Charles to break up with her For his part Charles handles things beautifully he wants Barbara to be the person he knows she s #Capable Of Being But In #of being but in same breath says that the thing he wants is to tell Barbara what to do with her life Basically imagine what would happen if Scarlett O Hara and Rhett Butler were actually concealing decent human beings under their protective layers of anger and cynicism instead of just being a borderline sociopath and a smug asshole Barbara and Charles are the best and we get to spend a ew hundred pages watching their romance develop before the Battle of Waterloo hits and everything goes to shitThe research that went into this book a seemingly luffy story of love during war is staggering I know very little of the Napoleonic wars so I can t comment on the accuracy of Heyer s version of the Battle of Waterloo but it certainly elt accurate The battle takes up a significant portion of the story with Heyer giving us an almost blow by blow account of the battle She manages to give us a technical overview of the battle while also showing the horrific reality of war there are several brief scenes and images during the battle that still haunt me as they very well should It s a significant departure The Franciscan Book Of Saints from the romantic shenanigans and gossip of the rest of the book and readers can expect some kind of whiplashrom the change in tone But if you re reading the book you know that the sudden depictions of war and all its brutality don t come out of nowhere throughout the book the war looms in the background and the approaching battle is always present It starts out subtleThe balls the concerts the theatres continued but picnics were added to the gaieties now charming expeditions with Sperm Gone Wild flowering muslins suired by hot scarlet uniforms the ladies in open carriages the gentlemen riding gallantly beside hampers of cold chicken and champagne on the boxes everyone lightheartedlirtation the order of the day There were reviews to watch Live and Online! fetes to attend day after day slid by in the pursuit of pleasure days that were not uite real but belonged to some half realised dream Somewhere to the south was a Corsican ogre who might at any moment break into the dream and shatter it but distance shrouded himand then the war is on people s doorsteps even as they re trying to ignore it and keep having parties and pretending that everything isineFrom scores of All Clear faces the polite company masks seemed to have slipped People hadorgotten that at balls they must smile and hide whatever care or grief they owned under bright artificial To Be Continued fronts Some of the senior officers were looking grave here and there a rigid meaningless smile was pinned to a mother s whiteace or a girl stood with a Chinas History (Sinopedia Series) fallen mouth and blank eyesixe.
