The Revelations of Carey Ravine

The Revelations of Carey Ravine

A beautiful historical mystery for fans of Sarah Waters, Amitav Ghosh’s The Sea of Poppies, and Jamaica Inn.

London in the 1770s is bursting with opportunity. It’s a city fuelled by new ideas and new money, where everything is for sale – including entrée into the ruling class.

Making their way in this buccaneering society are Carey Ravine, a spirited young woman of enigmatic background, and her husband, the charming, endlessly enterprising Oliver Nash. Carey and Nash share a historic connection to India and a desperate ambition to better themselves. But as Nash’s plans draw them into a restless association of gamblers and secret societies, Carey begins to question what’s really hidden behind the seedy glamour of their lives. Her unease grows with the appearance of a mysterious man whose appearance unearths a troubling secret from the past. Carey finds herself forced to investigate the truth behind the stranger’s claims­­ – and to confront her own illusions about herself.

Reviews

I marvelled at this novel. Gripping, assured and powerfully atmospheric; you know at once you are in the hands of a master storyteller
Rowan Pelling, on Turning the Stones
A glorious, intricate period romance: a perfect mix of Georgian high society blended with wild Irish magic. Em is a feisty heroine and the denoument is as perfect as it is unexpected
Manda Scott, on Turning the Stones
Gripping, tautly plotted and hauntingly beautiful: Debra Daley is a writer to watch
Vanora Bennett, on Turning the Stones
An enjoyable melodrama involving a stolen child, boorish brutes intent on ravishing the heroine, a woman with a gift of second sight and a rakish smuggler
Sunday Times on Turning the Stones
[A] tightly plotted, fun novel
