Description

'a classy, compelling adventure story and a true journey of discovery.' -- Lancashire Evening Post
a family divided by fortune, a country divided by faith
London 1609Elspet Leviston has always managed her father's lace business and expects to continue in his footsteps. So when her hot-headed cousin Zachary Deane appears from nowhere, his arrival in her life is like an earthquake.
Zachary is not who he seems, and has no love at all for Leviston's Lace. When her father dies unexpectedly, Elspet is horrified to find her inheritance is tied to her cousin's. But by now, her father has sent Zachary on a Grand Tour, and he is in Spain. Determined to regain her rightful inheritance, she goes to Seville in search of him.
Zachary is in training at the sword school of the charismatic Senor Alvarez, and here, in the searing heat and dust of Spain, Elspet's real journey begins. A journey that throws her into one of the most turbulent moments of Spain's history, and leads her to question everything she has ever known about her country, her faith and herself. Epic historical fiction set in 17th Century London and Golden Age Spain.
'I was thoroughly gripped until the end of this exhilarating book. And I would highly recommend this swashbuckling tale of lace, swordsmen, Spanish dancing, spice and romance if you enjoy a historical novel with a difference' - Sixtyplussurfers magazine
