DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (PRWEB) February 22, 2023
Diane Coia Ramsay announces here return to the publishing scene with the release of “Bernadette Barrymore” (published by Archway Publishing), a historical romance about a young woman whose life and marriage has been devastated by war and must decide whether to fight for her happily-ever-after despite malicious interference from her husband’s family.
Bernadette Barrymore should have lived out her happily-ever-after. As the war brings long-lost lovers back to their eager spouses waiting at the train station, her marriage to Lord Anthony Devereux seems to be a distant memory since she has not heard from him in some time. Despite her reservations, she is eager to start the life promised to her. But when she finally spies him at the station, they lock eyes for a moment, and then he turns to greet another, leaving Bernadette shocked and unable to comprehend what transpired to destroy the passion and love she believes they shared.
Soon, her hopes are bolstered again when Anthony knocks on her door. After they are reunited, Bernadette quickly learns that their marriage is comprised of more than just the two of them. As sinister forces become determined to destroy their love once and for all, Bernadette must make a decision. Should she fight for Lord Deveraux despite those who seek to tear them apart or does fate have something else in store for the independent, headstrong heiress?
“This book tells of a time gone by which runs through the pre-war to post-war years 1912-1920. The changes to the archaic social class system, which was coming to an end and also the changes and opportunities that were beginning to unfold for women, as they were still fighting for the right to vote. The story is told with humor and highly interesting and diverse characters whom you feel you come to know and care about during the course of the story,” Ramsay says. When asked what she wants readers to take away from the book, she answered, “A feeling of wanting to read on and of having gotten to know and understand the characters. A feeling of enjoyment and entertainment.” For more details about the book, please visit https://www.archwaypublishing.com/en/bookstore/bookdetails/846838-bernadette-barrymore
