If Major Tarrant expects Sunday’s Child, a Regency lady, to be a ‘bread and butter’ Miss he will be surprised. More
Georgianne Whitley’s happy life ends after the death of her beloved father and brothers.
Sunday’s Child, Georgianne Whitley, must cope with her widowed mother in order to secure her happiness and that of her two younger sisters.
When Rupert, Major Tarrant returns to England from Spain in 1813, his family expect him to marry and father an heir, but although Tarrant wants to please his relations he has compelling reasons for not wanting to have a child.
A rich, elderly suitor desperate for a male heir seeks Georgianne’s hand in marriage. Although the titled man’s offer would improve her situation she hesitates to accept his proposal.
Georgianne, who has known Tarrant since she was in the nursery, turns to him for help. She knows he is quixotic and that he will never fail her. Yet, even in order to help her sisters she is not sure as to whether or not she wants to accept his solution to her problems.
Tarrant admires dainty Georgianne and wants to protect her, but if he expects her to conform to Regency conventions and manners he will be surprised. Sunday’s child is ‘fair of face’ but she is not a ‘bread and butter Miss’.
Neither Tarrant nor Georgianne can guess what the future holds.
