Book Description

This eighteenth-century romance and adventure story will enchant and enthrall the reader! Eluned Owen is disappointed with events that take place at home in Wales and decides to visit her aunt, Megan Oare, in Devon. Megan is pleased to see her, but why is she frightened of the men who live in the dilapidated barn? Eluned becomes involved with Richard and Dudley, the two men she met whilst crossing the Bristol Channel. But can she trust them? She's invited to meet Alice, Richard's daughter, at Holland House. She finds it a different world to the one in Wales. But why does Richard have to leave so abruptly? And who is responsible for the burglaries from the large house? Why is Eluned locked in her room? After escaping out of her bedroom window, hurrying to rescue Megan and being left to drown, Eluned's problems are finally resolved.

Kate Elliss tries to be fair to everyone but no one seems to return the favour. When she is left in penury after her father's death, she seeks employment to support herself and her two faithful, elderly servants. Unused to servitude, and with an attitude somewhat inappropriate to her position, she realises that she has found her house of dreams - unfortunately it belongs to her employer (who is mystified by her polished and sophisticated gifts). Then her vengeful brother Daniel turns up and her situation becomes even more precarious.

'Jean Morley is a spellbinding storyteller. I could not put this novel down until the last page!' - Charles Muller, Diadem Books.
