Nowak, Pamela. Choices.
This typical “girl meets boy, girl dislikes boy, girl falls in love with boy but is supposed to be with someone more appropriate” historical romance was well-researched for historical accuracy. Miriam, forced to abandon her dreams of becoming a milliner to come home and take up her place in her military family, finds herself trotted out as a potential mate for an officer in her father’s army, but it’s the impudent enlisted man she has a hankering for.
The writing is decent, but the characters aren’t particularly memorable, and the novel comes to a fairly predictable conclusion.
