9780141033419: The Tenth Gift

Jane Johnson's The Tenth Gift is an wonderfully escapist page-turner set in seventeenth century Cornwall and Morocco,based on spine-tinglingly shocking historical fact, with a romantic hidden love story at its heart.

His parting gift to her was a new beginning . . .

Julia Lovat walks away from her seven-year affair with Michael with a broken heart and a book of secrets. Her book tells the true story of Cat Treganna, kidnapped by Barbary pirates and sold into slavery in Morocco four hundred years ago. When Julia travels to Morocco to discover Cat's fate, she is quickly lost in an exotic and vibrant land.

Yet her guide is Idriss, a man so charismatic and beguiling that their meeting feels like destiny. And so, in the heat and dust, two love stories, separated by four centuries, entwine and blossom. . .

The Tenth Gift is an enthralling story of secrets and discovering love where you least expect it.

'I really couldn't put it down. Exciting and romantic (oh so romantic!) and there is so much suspense. The descriptions are fabulous' Barbara Erskine

'Wildly yet convincingly romantic . . . a sensitive portrayal of Muslim culture and a delectable adventure of the heart' USA Today

'An unashamedly escapist page-turner that will be enjoyed by fans of Kate Mosse and Philippa Gregory' Daily Mail

'An atmospheric and hugely romantic adventure story' Marie Claire

Jane Johnson was raised in Cornwall but now lives for half the year in a remote mountain village in Morocco. She is the author of The Tenth Gift, The Salt Road and The Sultan's Wife. She has been involved in the book industry for many years and combines her work as a publisher with writing for both adults and children.

Review:

'Written with charm and gusto Johnson revivifies the guilty pleasure of historical romance' -- Independent

From the Author:

If you enjoy the books of Daphne Du Maurier, Anya Seton, Mary Stewart, Jean Plaidy, Georgette Heyer, Thomas Hardy, Emily Bronte, Henry Treece, Dorothy Dunnett, Rosemary Sutcliffe and Mary Renault, then I hope you may enjoy CROSSED BONES. I am certainly not claiming that it equals any of their classic works(how could I?), but these were the authors I read and loved when I was growing up and they are the writers who helped to form me as a writer.

Having said this, CROSSED BONES is a strangely hybrid beast, neither fish nor fowl. It is not pure historical fiction; nor is it romance, nor adventure, nor a modern novel, nor a ghost story, nor a thriller, but a combination of all these, and how it came to be that way is a story in itself.

If you are at all curious please come and visit my website and find out how I went to Morocco to research the story of how the Barbary pirates abducted an ancestress, and came back from Morocco with a Berber husband. If anything, it's a stranger story than that of Catherine Tregenna, and there are certainly times when it feels as if I am a character in someone else's novel, my life being directed word by word, event by event by some other perversely creative imagination.
