The daughter of a British father and an Egyptian mother
Elizabeth Rochewell was never fully accepted amongst British
high society. After her father dies while on an
archeological expedition in Africa, Elizabeth reluctantly
had to return back to England. Not looking forward to
returning back to England, Elizabeth found the long voyage
from Africa was made tolerable by the presence of Ian
Rufford, a man with a harsh past and a mysterious ailment
that causes strange moods and an aversion to the sun.
Ian discovers what the strange illness that has come over
him is and hopes that Elizabeth can accept him. As Ian and
Elizabeth find a companion in one another Ianís past
threatens to destroy him.
The Companion is a dark and compelling story.
Elizabeth ĎBethí and Ian are two loners who found a
connection with each. Beth was not accepted by either of
her parentís people so she never really belonged anywhere.
And Ianís life was going strong until he was forced into
slavery to a woman who was to blame for who he was and what
he was now. Ianís story was told in flashbacks and it was a
story that had me cringing at the abuse and evil he endured.
The Companion is a great story but it's not
for readers looking for just a sensual romance story.
The Companion is that and a whole lot more.
