A love story set in turbulent seventeenth-century England.
This is the story of Isabel Stanhope, the daughter of a seventeenth-century English Catholic family, who becomes involved with the dangerous political and religious factions of the day.
Katharine McMahon writes about the real lives of women from the past.
Strong narrative, vividly-drawn characters and a historical setting.
Based in part on the true story of Mary Ward, one of the seventeenth century’s most adventurous, infuriating and inspirational women. Mary Ward was a woman in constant battle with authority, and her determination to establish a female Jesuit order led her into great danger.
