This book is a romantic story. Craving a juicy, multi-generational tale of romance, revenge, betrayal, and redemption? Dig into My Mother's Rival, a masterpiece of plotting and characterization written by Charlotte M. Brame, one of the most prolific romance writers of the Victorian era. That night, certainly the very happiest of my life, my father danced with me. Heaven help me! I can remember my pride as I stood by the tall, stalwart figure, just able with the tips of my fingers to touch his arm. Mamma danced with me, too, and my happiness was complete. I watched all the ladies there, young and old; there was not one so fair as my mother.
