Set in 1815, Hannah Shelston finds herself rather distressingly with a cut to her forehead, a few sovereigns in her purse, a key in her hand and no real idea of what happened to make her flee from her ancestral home! The key fits the door of a dilapidated manor house on the outskirts of the village of Thatchfield and it is here that Hannah begins to make a home with her cousin Fanny and later Jane, a little girl left in their care. The friendship of the local Squire and some of the villagers is necessary to their survival, but then Hannah’s past comes back to haunt them! The key to everything is a maid called Dorcas, but no-one knows where she is…
Stretching from Wales to the Black Country in the heart of the industrial Midlands, this is a tale of adventure and romance that will keep you guessing right to the end!
