I enjoyed this title, part of The Dilhorne Dynasty series. Jack Dilhorne is the son of Tom and Hester (from the book Hester Waring's Marriage) and brother to Alan (from the book A Strange Likeness). This story opens in Washington D.C. in April 1861. Chapter two begins with Marietta attending one of Mr. Lincoln's balls at the White House ... Description from the book back cover: Civil War ... in a nation and a family. Jack Dilhorne was in Washington DC on business just as war was being declared between the North and South States. It was not the best of times to meet someone as intriguing as Marietta Hope. Having heard that she was a plain old maid, Jack was taken aback to find her bright, witty and good-looking, even if her style wasn't quite in vogue. But they had an enemy who could inflict much damage of their growing love ... The Dilhorne Dynasty - a world of adventure, generations of lovers.
