Lament for a Lost Lover Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Lament for a Lost Lover

When Arabella Tolworthy, separated from her parents and seeking safe harbor in France, meets Harriet Main, little does she suspect the threat Harriet will pose to her future happiness. Nor does she envision the tragedy that lies ahead when dashing Edwin Eversleigh , heir to a titular fortune, makes her his bride after a whirlwing courtship.   For in the deceptive peace following Parliament's Restoration of the Crown, a widowed Arabella returns to England bearing a new scion of the Eversleigh estate. Suddenly, her quiet devotion to the memory of her beloved husband is shattered by the arrival of Edwin's cousin Carleton, whose bitterness at being deprived of his inheritance seemingly only Arabella can allay. The reappearance of the conniving Harriet further jeopardizes Arabella's bond with the past.
