By Malcolm Macdonald
The final novel in the epic Steveson saga from bestselling author of THE WORLD FROM ROUGH STONES.
'A natural successor to the late Ronald Delderfield' Yorkshire Post
Abigail Stevenson is beautiful and talented, passionate and headstrong. Her parents, in reaction to their own struggle out of poverty, have brought her up to the innocence and idleness that are the privilege of the Victorian ruling class; but Abigail will have none of the cloistered aristocratic life they intend for her.
From the moment she tricks her maid, Annie, into divulging the secret of what happens between men and women, Abigail's life becomes a voyage of discovery.
This is both a gripping and passionate story of one woman's fight to free herself from the shackles of her social class and an electrifying vision of the Victorian era.
