A Little Love by Amanda Prowse
  

Lovereading view...

At its heart this is a tale of love conquers all. Cousins Pru and Milly from a shabby East End background have “arrived”, through determination and hard work, in London society. They have brought up their beautiful niece who is engaged to a well-heeled soldier. At the engagement party one of our cousins, Pru, meets prominent politician and love blossoms. Tragedy, deceit and duty come bounding in and Pru has some secrets to confess to her new love but all does not go according to plan. I am a big fan of this author. She creates characters who stay with you, situations that compel you forward and a world to lose yourself in. This is part of a series the author is calling “No Greater Love”. They are all lovely.

Synopsis

A Little Love by Amanda Prowse

Everybody needs a little love in their lives...Pru Plum is the celebrated owner of a famous Mayfair bakery. She wears Chanel and her hair is expensively cut. Few would believe that this elegant woman turned sixty-six last year. But Pru is not the confident, successful businesswoman she appears. She has done shameful things to get to where she is today. And she will do anything to protect the secrets of her past - especially when, for the first time in her life, she has finally fallen in love...From bestselling author Amanda Prowse, this is a story about love, loss and lies - and finding happiness before it's too late.
