The Soldier's Daughter - AnneMarie Brear
ABOUT THE BOOK -
With the heat of their beloved India far behind them, Evie Davenport and her widowed British Army officer father, are starting a new life in England. But Evie is struggling. With her dearest mother gone, Yorkshire with its cold, damp countryside and strict societal rules makes Evie feel suffocated and alone.
Her friendship with Sophie Bellingham, the gently reared daughter of a wealthy rail baron, is Evie’s only comfort. Until the arrival of local cotton mill owner, Alexander Lucas.
Newly returned from America, it is expected Alexander will marry and finally make England his home. And Sophie with her family connections and polite manners is the obvious choice.
But when Alexander meets Evie, a simmering passion ignites between them. Evie, with her rebellious spirit is like no other woman Alex has ever met, but to reject Sophie for Evie would cause a scandal and devastate everyone Evie loves.
Evie knows she must do her duty. But in doing so faces the unbearable future of being without the man she loves.

MY THOUGHTS -
I have read a few books by this author and loved everyone of them. When I see one come up for review I know it's going to be a sure thing.
I love historical fiction and these are the real deal. Her books always have that real historical feel that takes you back to a time that would only be possible through time travel. Sorry, I have time travel on the brain! LOL
I loved the main character, Evie, instantly. What a strong and bold young lady for the times. But also a great personality. I would have loved her in real life. I also really liked Alexander - a real gentleman!
This was not just a historical romance. There were a few side gigs going on that added a bit of suspense and excitement, and even a few heartbreaking moments.
Overall - a real nice, sweet, quick read. If you are a fan of historical fiction and historical romance then this one is for you!
