Major Wyclyff's Campaign by Jade Lee is an old fashioned historical romance that just received an awesome audio upgrade. Originally released in 2001 the story centers around Lady Sophia who used to spend her spare time tending to wounded soldiers in the hospital until her favorite patient dies. This particular soldier was Major Anthony Wyclyff who Sophia would spend hours talking with about her fears, dreams, and frustration with the aristocracy. On his deathbed he asked her to marry him and she agreed, thinking he will not recover.
Lady Sophia then gives away her dowry, puts herself permanently "on the shelf," and retires to the country to live a "free" life with her spinster Aunt. Soon after, the Major shows up to pick up his fiancée on his way to India. Needless to say, Sophia is shocked the Major is alive, but also upset that he is now ruining her grand plans for freedom. The rest of the story is Sophia being stubborn and putting the poor Major through one "test" after another, including graveling.
I listened to the Audible version of this book narrated by Pearl Hewitt, who did an outstanding job. Pearl provided distinct and consistent voices for all characters throughout. She also had great intonation and pace, conveying urgency in all the right places. I received a copy of this audio in exchange for an unbiased review.
