    This is my seventh book and one I enjoyed writing the most (with the exception of Inshallah) as I have always loved the 18th century. So with a lot of research into language, dress, customs etc of the time and the background of a place I knew well the story of Isobel unfolded. She was a high born woman forced into working as a skivvy in a country inn, the headquarters of a smuggling gang and unsavoury characters who tried to take advantage of her. Through several attempts at rape and murder she she witnessed the cruelty of man against man but also experienced the love of a good man helping her to survive, finally becoming a happy and prosperous woman.
