The Prodigal Son
written by Katie Daysh
genre: historical fiction
1812. Lieutenant-Colonel Benjamin Thorne returns home to London from Spain. His father is dying. Within hours of his arrival, Benjamin is the new Earl of Makepeace.
Suffering from grief and the effects of the violent Peninsular War, Benjamin has to navigate the world he left behind in England. But his newly married life is turned on its head when his former major, Evan Holloway, is invalided home from the continent. Benjamin decides to take care of his old friend, only for hidden feelings to threaten both of them.
Benjamin must play the game of the aristocracy: a game of masks, of facades, of rituals and traditions. But the cost may be very dear.
