We’ve two newly designed covers for two great novels today:
The Clouded Hills by Brenda Jagger is the first book in the Barforth Family trilogy, perfect for anyone who loves Downton Abbey.
At sixteen Verity becomes sole heiress to a fortune founded on the wool mills of Yorkshire and realises for the first time that she is no more than a pawn in the games of ambitious men. Obedient to the conventions of the Victorian age, she accepts a marriage of convenience and cloaks her proud spirit in the silks and satins of a society hostess. But for Verity Barforth convention is not enough. When at last she falls in love it is not with her husband, and she becomes the centre of a powerful drama of infidelity, jealousy and revenge, played out against the magnificent landscapes of the Yorkshire moors and the brutal poverty of the mills.
Alongside this is An Impossible Marriage, Pamela Hansford Johnson’s story of a young woman forced to grow up too quickly:
Living out her bright, happy teenage years in south-west London, Christine’s principal worries are that her dazzling best friend Iris Allbright might steal her new beau, or the admonitions of her manager Mr Baynard if she’s late from her lunch break. But when Chris is suddenly whisked off her feet by the mysterious – and much older – Ned Skelton, life changes for Christine almost overnight.
