The app includes the text and audio editions of Episode 1: Dancing Into Battle where, on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo, the Duchess of Richmond threw a magnificent ball in Brussels for the Duke of Wellington. Just after midnight, word came that Napoleon had unexpectedly crossed the border and Wellington and his troops were called immediately to prepare for war. Many of the officers died on the battlefield, still in the dress uniforms they had worn to the ball. At the ball are James and Anne Trenchard and their beautiful daughter Sophia, who has caught the eye of Edmund Bellasis, the son and heir of the Brockenhurst dynasty. Something takes place that has a seismic effect on all their lives and twenty-five years later, when the two families are settled in the newly-developed Belgravia, the consequences of this terrible secret still resonate. Behind the doors of these magnificent new houses lies a web of gossip and intrigue. Download Julian Fellowess BELGRAVIA and begin your adventure . . .
