London 1770. A time bursting with fortune hunters, the growing trade with the East and the profusion of exotic plants – with a variety of uses.

Carey Ravine and her newly married husband, man-about-town Oliver Nash, are living an extravagant lifestyle based on her small savings and his belief in the next deal. Remarkably, he turns out to be right; he is offered a fortune for writing columns, supporting his patron’s burgeoning political and financial career and denigrating his opponents.

But Carey, accosted by desperate strangers even when visiting Nash’s wealthy friends, begins to hear and reluctantly be forced to believe another story – not just about his employers but about Nash himself; and even of her father, whom she had thought long dead along with the rest of her family.

Dramatic, dark, full of fascinating insights into eighteenth-century society, The Revelations of Carey Ravine will enthrall you to the very last page.

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
